In order to rent a car it is essential to have had a valid driving licence for a minimum of one year. The driver must be in possession of an up-to-date national identity document or passport. In addition, the driver must be at least 18 years of age. It is likely that younger drivers will be charged a supplement; with the same happening if the driver is over 65 years old. These requirements apply if the rental is carried out in the member countries of the European Union. For the rental of vehicles in non-EU countries, an international driving licence is required.
