Rental car companies often charge additional fees for drivers who are under the age of 25 because statistics show that this age group is more likely to get into car accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers aged 16-24 are three times more likely to be involved in a car crash than drivers over the age of 25.
As a result, rental car companies view drivers under 25 as higher-risk customers and charge an additional fee to cover the increased risk of insuring them. This fee is often called a “young driver fee” and can range from $10 to $30 per day, depending on the rental car company and location.
It’s important to note that not all rental car companies charge young driver fees, and the policies and fees can vary based on location and other factors. If you’re under 25 and planning to rent a car, be sure to check the rental company’s policies and fees before making your reservation.

TIP: We do require our renters to have a major credit card rather than a debit card. If you are a young renter and don’t have a credit card see if you can be an additional card holder on your parents’ credit card. This works for renting cars as well as improving your credit score so you can get your own credit card.
