Many customers are asking what documents are required to rent a car abroad? The answer is simple: pretty much all the documents you would normally have with you on a journey. Besides the ID and of course your Driving Licence, you must bring along the Booking Voucher which is usually attached to your Booking Confirmation. All you need to do is to print it and hand it to the booking agent at the counter.
The car rental supplier will also block a security deposit on the Credit or Debit Card in the driver’s name, so make sure the card meets the requirements. Before you book your car, please feel free to check with us if these requirements are met.
Before making any travel plans or any reservations, please make sure you check with the authorities in your country if an international driving permit or IDP is required. In certain countries, the law requires for the drivers to present a national driving licence along with the IDP.
In the United Kingdom, the IDP is easily obtained from any Post Office.
Please keep in mind that not all suppliers accept debit cards and if they do, debit cards must meet certain requirements.
When renting with a debit card, some suppliers might require additional insurance which would reduce your deposit significantly, sometimes to just a fuel deposit.
Feel free to book directly on our website if you have a Credit Card or contact us today and our team will make all the arrangements for your Debit Card Car Hire!
