Hiring a car abroad from 8th June 2015

Recommended Posts

Scaremongering. I've tried out the new system, it can be accessed with your driver licence number, and national insurance number,

Which also explains what the letter codes mean on your licence.

 

Saying this I've never shown or used my paper counterpart when hiring a car abroad having only ever shown my photocard in about 10 trips with hire cars.

Scaremongering, probably, but at the end of the day it fits into the something else to remember / "Nice to know" department.. Why not produce a Driving Licence with a "Chip" in it like a Credit Card.

There is a hire firm in the UK I've used and they didn't even look at my photo bit. When booking online I Inputted my licence number and that was enough. All he checked was my credit card name matched.
