A full licence held for minimum of 1 year with no major endorsements.

For driving licenses from countries not part of the international driving license treaty, an official translation of the license must be presented with the original license.
The principle driver will need to have the following documents in his or her name. A full licence, a credit card, the voucher we will send you when you complete your booking, and a passport. A printed version of your voucher must be produced upon arrival at the rental desk. Failure to present the voucher means the car rental agent may charge you at the local rates. With Budget rentals you will also need one original form of proof of address.
This will depend on the car hire supplier you select. The vast majority of cars have a full to full fuel policy, which means your vehicle will be supplied with a full tank of fuel. To avoid incurring fuel charges, you will need to return it with the same amount of fuel as it had when you collected it. You can also choose pick up full return empty.
