Renting a car is an excellent way to explore new places with freedom and comfort. However, before you grab the keys and hit the road, it's crucial to ensure that you meet all the necessary requirements. Here's what you need to know:

1- Pay Attention to the Minimum Age

The minimum age for renting a car abroad is 25 years old. However, some rental companies accept drivers under 25 with an additional fee option.

2 - Carry the Necessary Documents

You will need the following documents:

  • Passport from your home country;

  • Valid driver's license issued more than 2 years ago, which must be physical and of the same nationality as your passport or identification document (for rentals in your home country);

  • International Driving Permit (IDP), mandatory in some countries.

3 - Credit Card

You must have a physical credit card with the following conditions:

  • In your name;

  • Approved for international transactions (for rentals outside your home country);

  • Valid within the rental period;

  • Issued by a physical banking institution;

  • With an available limit for a security deposit.

Important: Familiarize yourself with the rental companies' policies.

Some rental companies have their own criteria and may request additional information. Be sure to pay attention to the specific requirements of the rental company you intend to use, as policies can vary between companies.
