Europcar age requirements
How old do you have to be to rent a car from Europcar?
In the UK, Europcar’s age restrictions vary slightly depending on the location you hire from. Generally, you must be a minimum of 22 years old and if you are under 26, you need to have held your licence for two years.
Drivers between the ages of 22-26 are required pay a young driver surcharge of £33 per day. This is included in the price online, but only payable at the desk.
Young drivers are not permitted to rent premium or large vehicles.
Although young drivers aged 18-25 are permitted to rent a vehicle through Europcar in France, they must pay a steep fee to do so.
A young driver surcharge of €37 per day, up to a maximum of €370 per rental, must be paid in addition to the daily rental price for those 25 and under.
In Italy, drivers as young as 18 may rent with Europcar as long as they have held their licence for a minimum of one year.
A charge of €20,74 per day, up to a maximum of 15 days, must be paid if you are between the ages of 18-24. Those 25 and over do not have to pay this young driver fee.
easyCar customer reviews for Europcar
"Best part was service provided by Europcar at Heathrow, staff was professional and helpful and provided a good choice of cars on collection instead of other providers giving no choice at all."
"Good car, although had free Sat Nav before for no extra charge. Car comfortable, but the best thing was he friendliness of the check-in staff got my children interested (unbelievable!) and took no time at all."
"I was very happy with the service, price was reasonable, the cheapest company offered by easyCar was even Europcar. Reservation was properly done, no surprise at all. Car was brand new, located in city centre next to station and other public transportations. Good value for money as well."
Manchester - Piccadilly Train Station
"Rented twice, once in England once in Scotland, staff at Glasgow were wonderful. We got two flat tires middle nowhere in Highlands, we had fast response to pick up car and get us on our way, a little confusion but costs were picked up by easyCar, will rent again."
"The service from Europcar was fabulous. It seems fair to only be able to give them 10 out of 10 as they were brilliant!"
