Humberside Airport Car Hire
When you collect your hire car check for any scratches or damage on the bodywork, and make sure they are recorded on the paperwork you have been given. If they are not recorded, tell someone before you leave the rental location or as soon as possible afterwards.
if you are a visitor to the United Kingdom you can drive a rental car using your national licence, provided it is in a language which uses Roman letters and numbers. Holders of other licences must also show an International driving permit in English (available through motoring organisations).
Car rental companies have age restrictions with a minimum age of 23 but this can vary by company and car type. Most companies also apply "Young Driver" surcharges, typically around £4.50 per day for drivers under 25. The maximum age is generally 75 years, but again this varies by company.
The British weather can be pretty unpredictable and change from a sunny day into wet and rainy with a torrential downpour with little or no notice.
When driving a hire car in a foreign country you need to take extra care when driving in hazardous weather conditions and below are some reminders/guidelines on good practices when travelling in your rent a car in the rain:
- Hail and rain can reduce visibility so use dipped headlights and reduce your speed.
- In wet weather the stopping distance is at least double compared to stopping on dry roads, so make sure you keep extra distance between yourself and the car in front.
- If your steering becomes sluggish it probably means the rain is preventing the tyres from gripping the road, so ease off the accelerator and slow down gradually. Take extra care when driving on motorways, as the water can often settle around the central reservation and travelling at high speeds it can be easy to lose control if the right side of the car gets caught in large puddles.
- Take extra care when overtaking in wet conditions, especially with lorries on the motorway as the spray they kick back can badly impair visibility.
