Under 25 car rental fee -Young Driver Fee/Surcharge
Drivers above the age of 25 can rent any car-type in the US and they don’t have to pay any additional fee as they have enough driving experience and can be trusted with the vehicle. However, under-25 drivers are considered less experienced and as a consequence the suppliers charge them a small per day fee – termed as ‘young driver surcharge’.
Note that the young driver fee depends on how young you are, the car type you are renting, and the location where you are picking the car in the US of A. The surcharge may vary from supplier to supplier. In case you want to take the car abroad or want to drop it at a location different from the pickup one, confirm before placing the booking as many suppliers don’t allow such trips to under 25s. If permitted, the supplier charges extra for the service.
