What are the requirements to rent a car in Hamilton?

To make sure you arrive at the car rental places with the right information, there's some information worth noting and a couple of requirements you'll need to meet.

Unless you have a valid local license, you'll need to have a recognised international driving license. This isn't the same as an International Driving Permit. Be sure to bring your confirmation details, a credit card with enough funds in and the name of the driver on it, and your passport as a photo ID. The credit card owner will need to be present if you've used someone else's card. You can't rent a car in Hamilton with an absent person's card.
