Do I need an International Driver’s License to rent a car in Europe?
Renters must present a valid national driving license. If the driving license is not in the language of the country, then an International Driving Permit is strongly recommended. This is required for translation purposes to confirm the validity of the driver’s license for the safety of our renters and for Hertz. Note: A current valid foreign driving license must always be presented at the rental counter. Residents of the UK are required to have both parts of the photo-card license, a plastic photo-card displaying your photograph and scanned signature, and an accompanying paper document.
Is there an age restriction for drivers?
On most tours the minimum age is 25 without an additional Age Differential Charge. There are no upper age restrictions on seniors, providing you have a valid driving license.
If I have to cancel my trip, what are the penalties?
Penalties are dependent on how close you are to your departure date. The specific details and other information regarding payments may be found in our Terms & Conditions.
