Is there an age limit for renting a car at Manchester Car Rental?
The minimum age for hiring a car is 21 years old. However, for those that are not 25 yet, a young driver fee might apply, as insurance is more expensive for this age category. Some vehicles might not be available for you to rent if you are part of this age group, but at Manchester Car Rental we consider other factors as well, so it’s best if you contact us and we discuss your needs.

Do I need to have any documents when I want to hire a car?
When you rent a car from us, you only need your full driving license (photo card and paper), another form of photographic ID (such as a passport) and two utility bills.

How can I pay for your car rental service?
All normal forms of payment are accepted, including credit and debit cards, regardless of your method of booking. In some situations there will be a small deposit, required to secure your reservation. Depending on factors such as the duration of the rental and the type of car, a security hold will be placed on your credit card.

Is a driver included in the rental price?
No. All the cars we offer are self drive. If you're not comfortable with a manual gearbox we can offer automatic transmission vehicles to make driving a bit easier.

Can there be more than one driver?
Yes, this is possible for an additional fee. You can let us know about any additional drivers when you make your reservation.
