Car rental fee for under-21-year-old drivers at San Diego Airport

Companies make special demands on young customers. At San Diego Airport, at the car rental age of 21 and younger, drivers must pay a daily charge called an Underage Fee. The amount being charged depends on the specific company you are renting from. Consider the approximate Younger Driver's Charges in the following list:

  • Hertz - $19/day
  • Fox - $25/day for 18-20-year-old drivers
  • Dollar, Thrifty - $25/day

As a rule, the total price for car rentals for those under 21 at San Diego Airport doesn’t include the Underage Fee, but you must pay it at the counter at San Diego Airport. However, some companies include this charge in the final rate, thereby increasing it.

Start the booking process to see all price components at once. Keep in mind that discounts, equipment, and other factors affect how much you end up paying.

Under 21 car rental restrictions at San Diego Airport

Certain companies make it possible to rent a car at the age of 21 at San Diego Airport under special conditions. One of them is the limitation of the list of available vehicle classes. Higher categories may not be available due to higher market value and, as a result, greater potential financial risk for the agency. Consider what restrictions different providers apply to underage renters.

  • Hertz. Young drivers can pick up any model from economy to SUV classes. On the other hand, vehicles from the Dream, Prestige, and Adrenaline Collections are subject to the age restriction, and therefore not available.
  • Dollar/Thrifty. When you book a rental car under 21 at San Diego Airport with Dollar or Thrifty, you get access to the majority of vehicle classes, from compact autos to SUVs. Specialty categories such as the StyleSeries are not available.
  • Fox. This company allows under 21s to rent most vehicle classes. However, the Camaro SS Hardtop, Camaro SS Convertible, and Hemi Charger fall under age restrictions and require a minimum driver age of 25.

What documents do you need to rent a car in San diego if you are under 21?

You can enjoy a simple and fast San diego car rental under 21 on our website. All you need to do is meet the age policy and provide the following documents.

  • Driver's license in the chief renter’s name. This document proves your right to drive and legal age. You must provide a license with at least 1 year of driving experience. If your license is not printed in Latin letters, the company may require you to accompany it with an International Driving Permit.
  • Credit or debit card. A bank card issued in the major driver’s name serves as an acceptable method of payment for the rental. Make sure that the company accepts your type of card, and before traveling, leave the necessary balance on it to pay for the reservation, extra options, and deposit.
  • Insurance. You can use your credit card insurance or personal auto policy for protection. If they are not available, companies offer a standard plan that includes damage and third-party coverage. Also, consider additional and comprehensive plans when you rent a car under 21 at San Diego Airport.
  • Confirmation voucher. After completing the booking, we will send you a confirmation voucher by email. Print it out and take it with you on your journey.
