Information for Under 25s

information for young drivers looking for car hire at Aberdeen Airport


The minimum age to hire a car varies depending on the provider, but you can almost guarantee that if you are under the age of 25, you may well be subject to pay a Young Drivers Surcharge. Drivers under 30 may also be restricted on the type of vehicle they are allowed to borrow too, so make sure you check all of these details with the provider you opt to use.
For more information on minimum age requirements, please see the “more information” sections below for each provider.

Documents Needed


No matter where you are collecting your rental vehicle, the main driver must always have their full, valid drivers license on them, alongside another form of identification, such as a passport. You’ll also need to have a valid credit card too for the deposit to be held against.

Insurance

How much is your personal car insurance excess? £250 maybe? Well with a hire car, this can reach as much as £2,000…
Your car hire policy will usually include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Waiver but do you know what that actually means? Quite simply, it means that you are covered if the vehicle gets stolen or damaged, but it is NOT insurance and it certainly won’t cover any excess you would need to pay. For this reason, it’s alway smart to purchase excess insurance; but be wary of the higher costs that can be incurred by purchasing directly with the provider.

Benefits of buying excess insurance separately from your car hire provider:

  • You’ll be covered if the vehicle is stolen whilst you are hiring it and your excess will be covered on any damage caused to the vehicle, including any to the roof, tyres, undercarriage and windows (these aren’t typically covered by the providers)
  • You can use it with all car hire providers and cover multiple additional drivers.
  • Your baggage may be covered.

Tips

avoid those pesky charges by following some of our top car hire tips when looking for car hire at Aberdeen Airport

Avoid unfair charges for damage by doing a thorough check of the vehicle before you drive it away from the forecourt. Check for scratches, dents, burns, rust, cracks, tears and balding tyres and make sure the person signing the car over to you has noted these down on the paperwork. If you are collecting the car at night, make your you have a torch handy (on your phone or otherwise) and again, ask to have the fact that it was dark, noted down too.

Check your fuel policies to ensure you don’t get stung by a Full to Full deal! Where you can, opt for a partial refund policy – you’ll pay for a full tank of fuel upon collection, but when you give it back, you’ll be refunded per 1/8th of a tank of unused fuel (although some may incur an admin fee, so check those T&Cs!)

Airport Surcharge

Car hire providers operating on airport land will usual add an Airport Surcharge into the rental cost to cover the fees they pay to the airport. Avoid this extra charge by opting for a provider who is off airport and offer a transfer service.
