How old do I need to be to hire a car from Newcastle airport?

car rental newcastle international

The age you can hire a car from Newcastle airport really depends on the provider as they all have different minimum age requirements. Young drivers looking to hire a car from Newcastle airport can hire a car from the following providers:

If you are a student you can get up to 15% off car hire with Hertz. All you need is a valid student card which you will need to present upon collection of the vehicle.

Drivers under 25 usually have to pay what is called a young driver’s surcharge. This fee is added to each day of a young driver’s rental. The charge varies depending on your rental country, rental vehicle and car hire provider.

Young drivers should consider hiring a car from Newcastle airport because it can be cheaper than public transport as you can share the cost between the group, and it is also a great way of getting around North England.

What documents do I need to hire a car?

To hire a car from Newcastle airport you will need both parts of your driving license and a second form of ID such as a passport. Your provider will ask for these documents when you collect your rental vehicle. I photocopy of the documents will not be accepted by the car hire providers, they will need to see the originals. Car hire providers will cancel your rental if you forget either part of your driving license so it is important you bring both with you.

What additional charges can my provider add to my booking?

At the end of your booking you may discover your car hire provider has charged your credit card for more than the original car hire price. Car hire providers have a range of additional charges they may add to your booking. Here are a few charges they may add to your booking and how you can avoid them.

Car hire excess charges

If your car is damaged during the rental then the car hire provider will charge you an excess for the repairs. This excess can cost anything up to £2,000.

Can car hire excess charges be avoided?

Yes, car hire excess charges can be avoided if you buy a car hire excess insurance policy from Insurance4carhire. They will cover your excess if you have to pay it and can save you a considerable amount of money. Insurance4carhire offer both daily and annual car hire excess insurance policies depending on how often you hire a car.

Car hire providers often throw car hire jargon into their rental policies when it comes to insurance. You can learn what these terms mean at the Car Hire Centre.

Fuel Charges

If you return your vehicle with an empty fuel tank car hire providers will charge you a fuel charge to cover them filling up the vehicle.

Can I avoid this fuel charge?

Yes, you can avoid this charge by filling up your car before returning the vehicle to the rental station. If you fill the vehicle up with the same amount of fuel as when you received the vehicle you will avoid any fuel charges.

Previous damage to the vehicle charges

When you return your vehicle your car hire provider will charge you for any damage or scratches on the vehicle.

What if the damage was not my fault and already on the vehicle before my rental started?

car rental newcastle international

To avoid being charged for damage that was already on the vehicle you should check the vehicle thoroughly when you receive the keys to the vehicle. If you find any damage report it to the car hire provider immediately and make sure they document the damage you found. Take photographs if need be. That way the car hire providers cannot get a way with charging you for any damage that was already on the vehicle.

To find out more about charges of this nature visit the Car Hire Centre.

Airport Surcharge

An airport surcharge is the additional fee added to your rental when you collect the vehicle from the airport. The charge is added because it costs car hire providers more to have branches at the airport.

Can I avoid airport surcharges?

You can avoid airport surcharges by booking a meet and greet service from a car hire provider that does not have a location at the airport. Alternatively you could collect your car hire from a local Newcastle branch rather than an in airport branch.

One Way Rental fee

One way car hire means picking your rental up from one location and dropping it off at a different location. You are charged extra for this because the provider’s cars will all be at different locations in the country.

Can I avoid one way rental fees?

You cannot avoid one way rental fees but you can save money by booking your one way rental with Europcar. Europcar offer Airport Connect (one way rental to, from or between airports) from only £49. Click here to find out more.

Late Charges

If you return your vehicle any later than the specified return time you may be charged an additional day’s fee as a late charge.

Can I avoid late charges?

Some providers will offer you a 59 minute grace period to give you 59 extra minutes to return your car. However, the only way to avoid late charges is by leaving plenty of time to return your vehicle and plan for any possible traffic hold ups.
