Underage Car Renting at Major Airports

It's not always easy renting a car if you're under 25. For the most part, the larger car rental companies will not rent to persons under 25 unless they are part of a corporate or organization's discount program. If you happen to be going to a busy airport like Los Angeles or Orlando, you can do well with local independents or specific franchise locations of national chains (see our list at right). These companies may be scarce except at large airports. They usually have a minimum age policy of 21 with a very few allowing a minimum age of 18.

On a "US Nationwide Level", your best bet for 21-24 rentals is either with Thrifty at most locations or Dollar or Alamo at many locations.

Liabilities and insurance costs go up for rental car agencies when renting to those under 25. Companies that allow the "underage" to rent will usually pass this cost down to you in the form of a daily surcharge. This surcharge usually ranges from $5-$20 per day. The upside to all this is that those companies that will allow you to rent may also offer low basic rates!

The Rental Car Guide has compiled a list of cities to the right where we know there are companies that rent to the "underage". Unfortunately this list is not complete and is limited to only the largest airports with favorable market conditions.
