Documentation

The main driver must hold a full and valid driving licence for a minimum of 3 years. If the licence is the new style UK driving licence then both the photo card and paper licence are required.
 
If, for any reason, Europcar needs to check the license with the DVLA there will be an additional fee of £10.
 
An international driving license will be required if the license has been issued outside of the U.K. and is not easily identified as a driving license. Another form of photographic I.D. may be required, such as a passport.
 
Europcar uses the Equifax eIDVerifier system to confirm your address details. If this cannot verify your information additional paper proof of identity may be required (such as a utility bill or credit card statement.
 
International travellers may also need to show details of their return flights (if applicable) and contact details while in the U.K. as well as the above.
