I know it will most likely depend on the specific rules of the rental company, but is it generally possible in the U.S. for a 23 year old person with a german driver's license to either
- rent a car themselves or
- drive a car, that a friend of the age 25 or older rented
Furthermore, I read that additional surcharges may be applied, if a driver is under the age of 25. So is it allowed, to let a friend who is over the age of 25 rent the car, but then let someone drive who is under the age of 25, to get around the surcharges? If so, what would that mean regarding insurance of the car for the duration of the rental?
Basically, my question is: Is someone else other than the renter usually also allowed to drive the car and if so, regarding the surcharges is the driver or the renter the relevant party here?
Furthermore, would I need an international driver's license for renting and/or driving or would the german one suffice?
Thanks in advance for your help.
