What do you need to rent a car in Kyoto?
Any rental company you choose will require two things — a current driver’s license and credit card. If you’d prefer to opt out of the supplier’s insurance plan, proof of other coverage will also likely be needed. Read through your policy so you know what to bring when it’s time to pick up the keys.
Can I drive in Kyoto with my U.S. Driver's license?
No, so we recommend getting an International Driving Permit. To road trip around Kyoto, you’ll need to carry it alongside your U.S. License. Obtaining this permit is easy and should be done before your departure date.
Can I rent a car for a month or longer in Kyoto?
Whether you have plans to stay in Kyoto or travel beyond, it’s easy to book a long-term rental with Expedia. Enter your trip dates and pick-up/drop-off locations and we’ll help you find incredible long-term car rental deals.
Where can I find a Kyoto car rental if I am younger than 25?
Age policies are different between rental companies, so be prepared to do a little research. Found a Kyoto supplier that does rent to drivers under 25? That’s great! Just take note that extra charges often apply to drivers between 21 and 24. The terms and conditions of each rental car you’re interested in will have all the details you need.
