Don’t Be Left Without A Rental, Learn The Restrictions Before You Travel

By Guest

Traveler’s be warned there’s a regulation that can make it difficult to rent a vehicle if you are a senior and this is not any joking matter. Though everybody knows that you must be 21 or older to rent out a vehicle not many individuals are aware of the fact that as a result of so many more people living longer numerous companies in different countries are limiting the maximum age for renting a vehicle additionally.

There are various companies that are working hard to provide incentives and discounts to vacationing seniors although if you are a senior who is planning to travel you will need to look around to come across an agency that would be inclined to rent to you, especially if you’re older than 70. Regrettably, informing consumers about these limitations isn’t commonplace for a lot of rental car agencies.

Now you might imagine that simply because they permit you to reserve the vehicle that this indicates you will be able to pick up that rental when you arrive, however most car rental agencies only question if the driver of the car will be twenty one or older and very few inquire if the driver will be under the age of 70 or 75, therefore the only point in time that they are going to become conscious of your age is when you present your id to pick up the car. Even those that utilize AARP or senor citizen discounts still are not asked how old they are which is a downfall of the system that allows senior citizens to reserve the car but not actually drive it.

One thing is for certain, this will be extremely stressful for a traveling senor citizen who finds out just a little too late that they are in another country with no means of transportation. And even though you may feel that using a large, reputable car rental company or one that you possibly used before could help you prevent this dilemma, it will not. Basically even a company that would possibly rent you an automobile in Australia for instance, might not do the same in Europe.

More and more agencies are placing a dome on the age to rent a vehicle so it really is crucial, for your peace of mind, that you inquire specifically regarding the rental company’s policy in the country that you are traveling to. If your customer service representative is uninformed then ask to talk to a supervisor so you can know the specifics before you decide to travel.
