Who Can Hire a Rental Car

Got a trip coming up? Or interested in hiring a rental car for the first time? Renting a car is a convenient and flexible way to travel, whether you’re exploring a new city or simply need to get around for a short period. But who can hire a rental car, and what do you need to make the process as hassle-free as possible?  

In this blog, we’re answering your questions on who can hire a rental car with TCHire, including age restrictions, documentation, advice for non-EU license holders, and more. So, whether you’re a first-time renter, a young driver, or an international traveller, TCHire has all the information you need for car hire in Birmingham and throughout the West Midlands.  

How old do I have to be?  

One of the first questions many potential renters have is about age restrictions. Here at TCHire, you need to be at least 25 years old and have held a valid driver's license for a minimum of 3 years. This helps us ensure all our vehicles are rented to experienced drivers, which helps us maintain safety for all of our customers.  

What documentation do I need?

For car hire in Bilston, Stourbridge, Willenhall, and other areas of the West Midlands, you’ll need to present the following documents:

  • A valid driver's license
  • Two utility bills as proof of address
  • A debit or credit card for payment

The entire process can be completed online, so when you arrive for pick up, simply make payment and we’ll hand over the keys. It’s a good idea to check the expiration dates on your driver's license and utility bills to avoid any delays or complications during pickup.

What if I have a non-EU license?  

If you have a non-EU license, you can still rent a car with TCHire. Simply make sure your driver’s license is valid in the UK and present an International Driving Permit (IDP). If you’re living in the UK, this permit is only valid for 1 year. However, if you’re visiting the UK, your IDP should cover the duration of your trip. Get in touch with our team to find out more about IDP’s for car rentals.

If you’re not accustomed to driving in the UK, it’s important to understand local driving customs, UK road signs and driving laws before hitting the road.  

Do I need insurance?  

With TCHire, we cover all insurance needs for your rental, so you don’t have to worry about arranging separate coverage. Our comprehensive insurance makes sure you’re protected against potential damages or accidents, providing the peace of mind that comes with a hassle-free car hire in Kidderminster and throughout the West Midlands.

The service provided was very quick and most of all the person who served me was excellent with his customer care skills. A credit to the company as you don't get to see service like this anymore.

If I need a van I will get a van, even if they have to stretch their resources. Never did I hear 'we can't help you', sensibly priced and quite flexible. Definitely worth recommending.
