We don’t think your age should be a barrier to hiring a car. Car rental under 25 can be tricky – many companies don’t hire to younger drivers (or charge much higher prices) as they perceive the risks are too great. But here at Paull’s, if you’re under 25, we’ve got some fantastic deals on rental cars suitable for young drivers. Whether you’re heading to an interview, off on a road trip with friends or need to get yourself to uni, we’re here to help!

Car & Van Hire For Under 25s

If you’re a young driver aged between 21-24 years, you will need to give us a call to book your car or van hire. This is because there are slightly different terms and conditions for younger drivers that we need to go through with you on the phone. The minimum age for renting a car in the United Kingdom is 21, so we unfortunately cannot rent to anyone younger than this.

To rent a car from Paull’s under the age of 25, you must be 21 or over, and have held a valid, full UK driving licence for a minimum of 2 years. So, if you’ve only just passed your driving test, you won’t be able to hire a car for a while.

With regard to van hire for under 25 year olds, this is unfortunately not available to drivers aged 21 or 22.

Young Driver Car Hire

As with all our prices, our rates for younger drivers are low, however there are some additional things to consider for car rental under 25 years.

For insurance reasons, there is an additional daily driver surcharge of £15 per driver to pay on top of normal rental costs, and there is no option to reduce excess. Unfortunately, as young drivers under 25 are considered higher risk, we are unable to waive this.

You will also need to pay a £350 deposit with your booking, however don’t worry, as you’ll get this back if the vehicle is returned as it was when you collected it.

Paull’s Student Discount

Did you know we offer student car hire and student van rental? We know that budgets can often be tight if you’re under 25, so we also provide a 10% student discount on our already great rental price. All you need to do is bring your valid student ID card (don’t forget your driving licence too!) along with you when you collect your car or van, and we’ll take 10% off your hire cost.
