Drivers aged below 25 years or over 70 years may still be able to hire and drive but we would have to pass on the full drivers information to the hire insurance company and there is usually an additional insurance charge.
For all additional drivers (up to a maximum of 3 drivers) there is also an additional excess of £15 per day for each additional driver holding a UK licence.
Any endorsements, on any drivers licence, will be subject to additional charges. Small endorsements on a drivers licence (e.g. SP30 - speeding offence, will attract a 25% loading to charges (normally £5 per day) and more serious endorsements will attract additional loading). If drivers have had more than 2 accidents in the last 3 years, then additional charges will be applied by the Hire Insurance Company. Additional drivers with endorsements will be subject to additional charges.
