  • A valid U.S. driver license or a valid driver's license issued from your country of residence and an International Driver's Permit. You'll need to present your International Driver's Permit at the rental counter to prove your identity, verify your birthdate and, if necessary, for a driving record check.
  • Your Rental Car Itinerary/Receipt - which is available on the homepage of AutoRentals.com at the top right-hand corner of the page. Enter your Request Number and your receipt and full itinerary will be right there for you to print.
  • A valid major credit card with available credit. A debit/check card that has a Mastercard or Visa logo is accepted. You'll need to have available credit as the rental car companies require this as a security deposit on the car. The driver will also need to have this available credit if they choose to purchase optional items at the rental counter.
