Although the European rental fleet differs substantially from other countries, the process of renting a motor vehicle for use in Europe is virtually the same.

Non air conditioned and manual transmission models (stick shift) are the norm in Europe. Air conditioned and automatic transmission models are usually available, but only in the form of larger, higher priced vehicles. As a result, opting for these relative luxuries costs usually 1.5 to 2 times more than the european regular class vehicles.

Rates vary from company to company, month to month, and country to country. You can reserve your rental car immediately, compare our discount car hire rates at your leisure and book your car rental later.

IDP International Drivers Permit

Your American driver's license is all you need in most European countries. An international driver's permit (IDP) provides a translation of your American license, making it easier for the cop to write out the ticket. Those driving in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, Greece, and Eastern Europe are likely to be fined if found without an international driving permit, and should probably get one (at your local AAA office $10 plus the cost of two passport type photos free if you are a premium member).

Age Limit

All rental companies require their customers to be of some minimum age usually either 21, 23, or 25 years. Also, many companies deal only with persons who have held a driver's license for at least a year or two. As for the other end of the age spectrum, most companies enforce a maximum age limit of 65 or 70 years. While ages vary from country to country and company to company, those who are at least 25 years old should have no trouble renting a car. Younger renters generally can get stuck with extra costs, like being required to buy CDW insurance or pay a young drivers surcharge". Most car rental companies will not rent a car to someone under 21. Only Britain and Ireland have a maximum age limit (75), but some car rental companies enforce age limits of their own.

Most Agencies often sell out well in advance of the holiday season. So if you're planning to make a europe trip during peak holiday season, consider making your reservations, say, four months in advance.
