At what age is it possible to rent a car?


Renting a car under a short or long-term contract is already a standard in our country. We go for cars as part of our professional life as well as during our time off, when we do not want to use our own vehicle or invest in buying a brand new one. Each rental company has regulations that clearly define who can rent a car. Find out what it looks like with Flex To Go.

Advantages of renting a car

Why are we so eager to use rented cars? There are several ways to answer this question, but first and foremost, it is a viable solution when:

  • we do not have our own car, and we want to use the possibility of fast travel just occasionally. In this case, there is no economic benefit in buying a new vehicle hence car rental presents more advantageous;

  • we are planning a business trip by plane. Further commute by public transport will not benefit us;

  • we need a fast and reliable method of transportation during holidays or other occasions;

  • we want to use a premium car for only a fraction of its market value;

  • we run a company and want to flexibly manage the fleet within fixed monthly costs and without the need of investing considerable funds for the start.

In addition to that, the main advantage of renting through Flex To Go is the possibility of pre-booking the vehicle online. Thanks to that, the driver can check which cars are available at a given location and at a given time, and then order a specific class. Then, on the pick-up day, it is enough to present an identity document, a valid driving license and have a credit card with you, which is sufficient to sign the rental agreement. It is also worth paying attention to the wide range of our rental offers. We offer drivers a dozen of different car groups at each location to match any demand.

At what age can a car be rented?

At Flex To Go, we believe that a car can be rented by anyone who is over 20 years old and has had an valid driving license for at least 12 months. Thanks to this, we can be sure that the car is rented by a person who already has driving experience. However, this does not apply to all cars. In case of vans and premium cars, we require the driver to be at least 25 years of age. What if you have a valid driving license but are younger? You can still rent a car, but there will be a small additional fee per each rental day.

In case of seniors, we do not have the upper age limit, but the rule regarding the validity of the driving license still applies. In addition to that, people over 70 will be charged an additional fee. This is associated with a higher risk of a road accident. As for the driving license, our terms state that any driver who wishes to rent a car must have it valid for a minimum of 12 months by the time of the start of their rental.

Our rentals are available at the most important airports in Poland. According to our terms and conditions, we do not apply a mileage limit, and we enable our drivers to take advantage of numerous extras, such as excess waivers or various car equipment.
