Auto Europa Car Hire Trieste Airport requires the primary renter to be at least 21 years of age, and to have held a valid drivers license for at least one year prior to the rental date.  Younger drivers between the ages of 21 and 25 might pay a higher rental rate than usual, in the form of a ‘young driver fee’. This is a daily rate applicable to each underage driver registered on the rental contract, up until a maximum of ten rental days.  Younger drivers may also not be permitted to hire certain larger or specialty type vehicles.  Additional drivers can usually be added to the rental contract at an extra daily rate as well, and they should also meet the same requirements as the primary renter.  In some cases, an International Driving Permit may be required, in particular by foreign renters whose drivers license is not written in the Roman alphabet.  A major credit card is needed by the primary renter to pay for the car hire period, such as American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard / Mastercard or Visa.  At some car hire companies two major credit cards are needed to hire from certain vehicle categories.
