    teenagers and rental cars

    When it comes to renting a car, the minimum age requirement is 25, however, some car rental companies allow drivers below 25 to rent a car. If they are under 25, a Young Drivers Surcharge will be added to the rental cost. The youngest age to hire a car is 18 where this option is not available for every supplier and location.

    Which companies allow teens to rent a car?

    FOX Rental allows renters and drivers to be 19 years of age. While Hertz, Thrifty, and Dollar allow renters  to rent a car if they are 18 years of age in Quebec. Avis allows renters to be 18 years of age in Saskatchewan.​

    Which car rental company is cheapest for teenage drivers?

    The car rental company with the cheapest young renter fee is FOX Rent A Car, which only charges $14* per day for 19 year old renters. Keep in mind that rates may change so make sure to coordinate this with us so we can help you find the best deal.

    Keep in mind that. . .

    Renting a car as a teenager comes with many added costs and additional charges, meaning young drivers usually need to pay more. You will only be able to rent a car from select car rental companies and will need to understand the terms and conditions thoroughly.
