To rent a car in Brazil, it is essential to meet specific requirements, which vary according to the nationality of the renter. These criteria concern documentation, age, and characteristics of the renter's credit card.

1 - Minimum age of 25 years old. Some rental companies accept drivers under 25 years old under the Young Renter category.

2 - Pay attention to the documentation:

  • Valid driver's license issued more than 2 years ago;

  • Passport of the same nationality as the driver's license.

3 - Physical credit card meeting the following conditions:

  • Under the renter's name;

  • Authorized for international transactions;

  • Within the expiration date;

  • Issued by a physical banking institution;

  • With an available limit for security deposit hold.


The approval of the credit card is entirely the responsibility of the rental company;

Additionally, some rental companies have their own policies regarding the criteria and may require additional information. But don't worry! If that's the case, you will be notified in advance.
