car rental for 19 year old?

    • Thread Starter

    does anyone know a car rental company which would rent a car for a 19 year old? all of them seem to have a minimum age of 23. but i heard that u can get a rental but the insurance would cost more? is this true??

    The insurance and rental cost is usually sky-high if you're under 25, and if you're renting abroad I believe you have to be over 21.

    some places you have to be 21 min

    As a blanket rule, you're unlikely to be able to hire a car over here under 21.
    However, temporary insurance is something you might consider, I think norwich union do it, online as well. So you could borrow a friend's/family member's car and get insured for like a week... If that's at all helpful, depends what you need a car for!
