Where can I find an Europe car rental if I am younger than 25?
Some Europe outlets will rent to drivers under 25 years old, and others won’t. Age policies differ from supplier to supplier, so you’ll want to do your homework. Also, find out if there are any extra costs. Some businesses will pass on a surcharge to young drivers between the ages of 21 and 24. Always check the terms and conditions to avoid any nasty surprises.
