Information about driving licences

To help control liability and insurance costs, several major car rental companies, including Budget, screen for high-risk drivers.

Budget may ask potential renters a variety of questions regarding their personal driving records. Whenever a prospective renter's driving history fails to meet a company's established criteria, the company can deny rental service.

All drivers of the vehicle will need to be present and provide a valid driver's licence - please note that UK drivers with photocard driver's licences should present both their photocard and the accompanying driver record document - and credit card in their own name. If you have any discounts, coupons or corporate identification, they must be presented upon arrival.

If you have any doubts concerning your history of endorsements or other questions please contact our Call Centre on 0844 544 3407.
