Car Hire For Young Drivers In Edinburgh
You're only young once! Whilst this phrase is of course true, it doesn't take in to account the difficulty that young people can face when trying to rent a car.
Hiring a car when you are aged less than 25 can be very hard and is a worldwide problem facing young people, not just in Edinburgh. The main problem is that the most well known car rental companies simply won't rent to anyone under 25 and the few that will charge astronomical fees to do so. Why is this? It all comes down to insurance. Young drivers are essentially a bigger risk and have a higher chance of having an accident but it's not very fair to apply that to every young person with a driving licence is it?
At Edinburgh Car Rental we take driving experience, qualifications and even personality in to account when considering hiring to a younger driver. In short, we assess every driver individually and because of this we probably rent to more young people than anybody else in Edinburgh.
There is a limit to what we can offer though. For example, the more powerful or prestige cars on our fleet are off limits unless you are a regular customer who has proven themselves to be trustworthy. It's also important to note that reasonable charges and higher security deposits may apply to younger drivers.
Our best rates for young drivers aren't available to book online so if you're under 25 and need to rent a car in Edinburgh then please contact us
and we'll be happy to discuss hiring a car to you.
