    Car rental for 19 y/o in usa
    I am 19 yrs old and looking to rent a car in usa, more specifically seattle. I was wondering if there is there any way to do so as all rental companies have a minimum age of 21 yrs old? :confused:

    While of course the age for signing a legal contract is 18, part of the issue is the high cost and rules for the insurance they pay. So most require a older person to do the actual rental.

    All I can think of, is to just call all the listed rental agenies and hope to find one.

    Usually, the only way you can rent a car at 19 is if you are a federal government employee on a business rental, or active duty military with travel orders that specify car rental.

    One thing you may want to check is to see if the company you work for has a corporate account with any car rental companies. Some large companies contract their corporate accounts with certain car rental companies to lower the minimum age for their employees.
