  • i am 28 but i rented my first car when i was fiance at the time who is now my husband and i were going to visit his grandparents and i needed to rent a car cuz ours was messed up...anyway you have to have a credit cared not a check card from a bank so you may wanna get one of the prepaid cards like the onles you get at walmart..enterprise is more willing to work with someone under 25 on this however and they will hold more on your card for a week or so cuz of your age and financial responsibilities to the company

  • I rented from Enterprise when I was 23, all I needed was my debit card from my credit union and my drivers license. I don't know if their policies have changed in the last 4 years, but I had no issues renting.

  • My husband and I rented from Enterprise when we were 21 & 22. We used a debit card and I believe it was about $500 to rent for about a week. It costs us more because we had to buy their insurance since we didn't have any insurance from the states (we lived in Germany and was visiting family here in the states and only had insurance in Germany). We had no problems renting it though.
