What age do I need to be to hire a vehicle in Rhodes?

Generally, you can hire a car in Rhodes from the age of 21. As you’re classed as a young driver, your choice of car will be restricted and a ‘young driver surcharge’ will likely apply. For other categories of car, the minimum age requirements start from 23 or 25.

What do I need to hire a vehicle in Rhodes?

To hire a car in Rhodes, you will need a valid driving licence, a valid form of ID – such as a passport – and a credit or debit in your name. On rare occasions, you may be asked to present other documents, such as proof of address or proof of insurance. If you’re unsure, speak to your provider in advance.

Do I need car hire excess insurance in Rhodes?

No car hire excess insurance is not necessary to rent a car in Rhodes, but for added peace of mind and extra security, it’s well worth taking out a policy. Car hire excess insurance is designed to reduce or cover the excess you have to pay if something happens to your hire car. And because this excess can be expensive, it can really make a difference in the event of a claim. Top tip: avoid paying at a rental desk on the day. Instead, consider a deal from a standalone provider.

Can I rent a car with a debit card in Rhodes?

Yes, you can hire a car with a debit card in Rhodes so long as you meet certain terms and conditions. However, not every firm accepts debit cards. On that point, it’s worth noting that credit cards are more widely accepted than debit cards.

Which rental companies are available at Rhodes International Airport?

Auto Holidays, Avance, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz and Sixt can all be found in the arrivals hall at Rhodes International Airport.

Is it cheaper to rent a car at the airport or off site in Rhodes?

When you hire a car from the airport, you’ll usually find a ‘location-based fee’ included in the cost of your rental. As such, hiring off-site in Rhodes is generally cheaper.

Can you rent a car in one city in Rhodes and drop it off in another?

It appears that very few car hire companies operate a one-way rental scheme in Rhodes, with many restricting pick-ups and drop-offs to Rhodes International Airport. Search online in advance to see what options you have.

Can you rent a car the same day in Rhodes?

Yes, you can pick up a hire car on the day in Rhodes – handy if you need to be flexible or your plans change. If, however, you can book in advance, it’s recommended – it’ll save you time and money.

Can I hire a vehicle at 21 years of age in Rhodes?

Yes, you can hire a car in Rhodes if you’re 21. Expect a ‘young driver surcharge’, which is typically added to the cost of your rental if you’re under 25. Your driving licence needs to have been valid for at least 12 months, too.
