    As a general rule they don't let you rent unless you're 21/25 or you've have your licence for 3 years. I had to rent a van when I had only had my licence for 6 months and the only way I managed it was to get down on my knees and beg a local rental firm who's boss I could actually speak to.

    Best bet is mates or relatives.

    No it is not possible (only exception tends to be if it is for company use)

    Not that im aware of. Nobody will rent to under 21s because of insurance issues. Most places are 25.

    Wow... one of the big rental companies has finally realised they could actually make some money out of it?:woo: That said the young driver surcharge is pretty hefty per day!

    Don't think they mark their cars, except the random small sticker in the window I guess, however it could be different depends on their stock I guess.
