Going from the UK to France by car involves travelling over the sea by ferry, or under the sea if you use the Eurotunnel. For this reason few, if any, car hire companies will allow you to make this kind of journey, and the ones that do will make you pay hefty fees. We would suggest you drop your hire car off in the UK, arrive in Calais by other means, and then continue on your journey with another hire car.
Yes you can, but be aware that you will most likely need to pay what is known as a Young Driver Fee. That said, not all car hire companies classify young drivers in the same way – some will charge the fee if you are under 25, while others will only charge if you under 21. Car class and engine size are two other factors which determine the size of the fee you have to pay.
On Rentalcars.com you can easily check which companies charge a Young Driver Fee – some don’t even make you pay a surcharge at all.
