    To rent a car, you must be at least 21 years old (age can vary by car category) and have held your driver's license for at least 1 year. For drivers under the age of 25 an additional  young driver surcharge may apply locally. Seatbelts are mandatory and so are child seats for children up to 3 years.

    • Town and city: 50 km/h
