Student Car Rentals & Young Driver Car Rentals
Car Rental Express companies seek to provide exceptional service and rates for all customers, regardless of age.
By definition, young drivers are usually those customers between the ages of 18-25 years old. Many large national car rental companies do not rent to young drivers, however agencies with Car Rental Express strive to help them. Each agency has its own age limits and rates, but they generally recognize and aim to suit the needs of young drivers.
Young Driver Issues
There is a common belief that young drivers are not as responsible on the road as their older counterparts – something that Car Rental Express knows is not true. That being said, there are driving problems associated with young drivers that must be addressed:
- Excessive Speed - we urge young renters to obey speed limits.
- Alcohol - Approximately 30 percent of accidents among young drivers in the United States are a direct result of alcohol usage, which is why Car Rental Express agencies, along with all states and provinces, have zero tolerance for alcohol consumption while operating their cars. Operating a car under the influence of alcohol voids most insurance coverage programs, leaving an intoxicated driver fully liable for all costs, if they cause an accident.
- Seat belts – It is imperative to buckle-up while on the road.
If you are continuing your post secondary education at a technical institute, community college, university, or any other institution of higher learning, you are the kind of student we are talking about. Unlike many large, national car rental companies, we know that most student drivers are responsible, thoughtful, safe on the road. It is because of this, that some Car Rental Express agencies will rent cheap car rentals to students.
