Written by Carl Spanier

Renting a car is a great way to see a new place, but car rental companies are leery of hiring cars to younger people. Many rental firms will simply not provide cars at all for drivers under twenty-five, whilerepparttar price rates of others are simply prohibitive. Unfortunately, there is sound logic underlying this sense of caution displayed by car rental companies, as younger people have been shown time and again to berepparttar 143443 most likely group of drivers to be involved in car accidents – this is also reflected inrepparttar 143444 high insurance rates that are offered to younger drivers. There are however some companies that offer reasonable rental deals to drivers under twenty-one, so if you are lucky enough to get a good rental deal, then pay it forward to your peers – drive your rental car as responsibly as you can to ensurerepparttar 143445 continuation ofrepparttar 143446 great price forrepparttar 143447 next young driver who comes along.
