What are the minimum car hire requirements?
Car hire law is different inside and outside of Brazil. In Brazil, the hirer must be 21 years old, hold a valid National Driver's Licence issued more than 2 years ago (definitive driver's licence) and a credit card with enough limit for the car hire deposit. This is also called pre-authorization. Outside Brazil, the minimum age is 25 years of age. A valid passport and, in some countries, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is required as well as a driving licence. The authorization hold must also be associated with an international credit card.

How does a car hire deposit work?
The car hire deposit, also referred to as pre-authorization, is a sum of money held against your credit limit for the car hire company’s own safety. This isn’t charged as a normal purchase, but only held for the duration of your reservation. This is done when you pick-up the car, but you don’t have to worry: the full amount is returned directly to your balance after you drop-off the car in the same condition as you picked it up.
