Age Requirements

How old do I need to be to drive a rental vehicle?

To drive our vehicles, you - and all of your drivers - need to be at least 21 years old and have held a full, valid driving licence for at least 2 years at the start of your rental. For car groups A, B and E you - and all the authorized drivers - need to be at least 19 years old and have held a full, valid driving licence issued from at least 1 year.
A higher minimum age limit may apply to certain vehicles.

How do I know if there are minimum age restrictions on my rental?

When you book, you'll be told if there are any minimum age restrictions for the vehicle you request. If you're not sure, please check your booking confirmation email - or call the reservations team.

I'm under 25; do I need to pay a young driver surcharge?

If you - or any of your drivers - are under 25 when you pick up the vehicle, you will each have to pay a young driver surcharge. The cost for this will depend on where you're picking the vehicle up from - but you can expect it to be between EUR 21.39 (Vat included) and EUR 25.66 (Vat and airport/city surcharges included), per day, for each driver.
If you rent the vehicle for more than 15 days, you'll only be charged for a maximum of 15 days and get cover for the duration of your rental, up to 30 days.

Are there any maximum age restrictions?
No, so long as you hold a full, valid driving licence for at least 1 year.


Fuel Policy

Should I bring the vehicle back with a full tank of fuel?
Yes. The vehicle will normally be supplied with a full tank of fuel. You must return it to us with the same amount of fuel it had in it when you picked it up usually a full tank as shown on the factory-installed fuel gauge.  We recommend you fill up as close to the return location as you can on the return date, and keep the receipt to show us. If you do not return the vehicle with a full tank and you can not show us a receipt for fuel we will charge you.

Fuel Options

I plan to travel more than 120 kilometres, and want peace of mind, do you have a fuel option for me?
Yes, with Fuel Up Front you pay for a full tank of fuel, based on the manufacturers stated fuel tank capacity for your vehicle plus our costs of refuelling the vehicle for you. Then you just return the vehicle with whatever is left in the tank (even if its virtually empty) so long as the engine still runs.

How do I calculate the cost of Fuel Up Front?
Depending on where you are renting, we charge the average fuel price at the start of your rental period as stated on this EU fuel index http://ec.europa.eu/energy/en/statistics/weekly-oil-bulletin. However, you do not get a refund for any fuel you do not use.

Can I get Fuel up Front at any time?
No, if you want to take advantage of Fuel Up Front, you must ask for it during the booking process or when you pick up the vehicle.

I plan to travel less than 120 kilometres, do I still need to fill up?
Yes, often the fuel gauges stills look full so we ask you to fill up the tank near to the return location and show us a copy of the receipt.  If you do not have time to fill up the tank, or can not show us a receipt, we will apply EZ Fuel to cover our costs of refuelling the vehicle for you.

How much is EZ Fuel?
Depending on where you are renting, you pay of fixed fee of 15.00 Euro.  

What are my options if I do not return the vehicle full and have not bought Fuel up Front?
Pay on Return will apply if you have driven more than 120 kilometres and:

  • Do not buy Fuel Up Front
  • Do not return the vehicle with a full tank

How do I calculate the cost of Pay on Return?
You pay for fuel based on the factory-installed fuel gauge rounded down to the nearest eighth (1/8) of a tank. This is based on the manufacturers stated fuel tank capacity.
We recommend you to fill up as close to the return location as you can. Otherwise we charge the average fuel price at the end of the rental period for Italy as stated on this EU fuel index: http://ec.europa.eu/energy/observatory/oil/bulletin_en.htm. Included a surcharge per liter as indicated on your rental agreement.  If we have to refuel the vehicle, a refueling service fee of EUR 5.00 will be debited. This charge covers our cost of driving to the nearest petrol station at short notice and to restore the inconvenience of the potentially delaying the next customer's rental.

Electric Vehicles

How much battery charge should I return an electric vehicle with?

You must return the vehicle with at least a 70% battery charge, or the same % battery charge as it had at the time of pick-up.

What am i charged if I fail to return an electric vehicle with the required 70% battery charge, or the same % battery charge as it had at the time of pick-up?

We charge a fixed amount dependent on the battery life showing on the factory-installed battery gauge. This is the Pay on Return rate. the amounts charged are set out below:
