Why hire a car on holiday?

Whatever the length of your holiday, you'll want to make the most of your time. With so much to keep you entertained, from travelling to quiet beaches, seeing historical sites or taking the family into town or to the waterpark, hiring a car can really make a holiday.

Hiring a car through Holiday Extras gets you -

Holiday Extras acts as an agent for car hire providers. Your contract will be with the rental provider whose details and rental terms and conditions are displayed when you select a car and on our payment page. We'll send you a voucher closer to the time you collect the car which will include everything you need to find your pick-up location.

Car Hire Essentials

Once you've booked your car hire through Holiday Extras, there are a few requirements to be aware of. Always:

Check your documentation

Before travelling always make sure your driving licence is valid and that you have all parts of it together. You may also need an International Driving Permit (IDP) to drive in your destination, so check this before you travel.

Understand the local legal requirements

Depending on the country you're driving in, you'll legally have to carry certain items in your car. Check what these are before you travel and make sure you have them in the car at all times. This also applies to the local laws for which side of the road to drive on, speed limits and drink driving limit. Make sure you're familiar with all the rules before you travel.

Learn the local road signs

Things can sometimes get confusing when driving a car abroad, so it's important to get up to speed with the local road signs and how they may differ from those at home before you jump in the car.

Contact the DVLA

When making your booking to hire a car with Holiday Extras, make sure you contact the DVLA to generate a check code. You can apply over the phone or online. Your code will last for 21 days.
