        • Age limits: The minimum age to rent a car is 18 years old and with some suppliers for people over 79 years of age, you must also have held a driving license for a minimum of 12 months. Young driver fees may apply to many car rental companies for people under 25 years of age. This information is visible in the search engine with Orbit Car Hire
        • International Driving Permit:  An International Driving Permit is required in addition to a National Driving License if the National Driving License you or any of the Additional Drivers hold is not identifiable as a Driving License, eg, it is in a non-Latin alphabet (eg Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Japanese). It can also depend on the country or car rental company you are renting with. If you have found a car on our website, you can press the rental terms link from the supplier for more information about driving license requirements. 
        • Additional papers:   A credit card in the name of the main driver needs to be presented. A security deposit may be required while renting a car so the credit card must have sufficient funds. You can find details about the security deposit listed while booking the vehicle as well as on your voucher. It is important to have a valid driving license with the name of the main driver as well as additional drivers when it applies. You will need to have identification with you such as a passport and ID cards. When you pick up your rental car you need to have your voucher with you.
        • Additional requirements:  Warning triangle, First Aid Kit, Spare Wheel and Tools, Fire Extinguisher, Reflective Vest
        • Children in the car:  Child Restraint System (CRS): Children must be secured in an appropriate child restraint system according to their age, weight, and height. This typically means using a car seat, booster seat, or booster cushion. The specific regulations regarding child restraint systems can vary depending on the age and size of the child, so it's essential to adhere to the guidelines provided by the manufacturer and local laws. Seat Belt Usage: Ensure that all passengers, including children, are wearing seat belts or are appropriately secured in child restraint systems at all times while the vehicle is in motion. Age and Size Requirements: Children under a certain age or size may be required to use specific types of child restraints. For example, infants and toddlers typically require rear-facing car seats, while older children may transition to forward-facing car seats, booster seats, or seat belts based on their size and age. Prohibition of Front Seat Usage: In many jurisdictions, it's illegal for children to sit in the front seat of a vehicle equipped with airbags if they are under a certain age or size. This is because airbags can pose a significant risk to young children in the event of a crash.
        • Driving side of the road:  the right-hand side
        • Lights:  In Georgia and Europe, it's mandatory to use headlights during certain times and conditions, as per local regulations and common road safety practices. Here are some general guidelines:

          Nighttime Driving: When driving at night, headlights must be turned on. This is a standard safety practice to improve visibility for both the driver and other road users.

          Low Visibility Conditions: In conditions of reduced visibility due to factors such as fog, rain, snow, or mist, headlights should be used to make the vehicle more visible to others on the road.

          Tunnel Driving: When driving through tunnels, headlights are typically required to be turned on regardless of the time of day. This helps maintain visibility and safety in enclosed spaces.

          Dusk and Dawn: Some regions may require headlights to be used during the periods of dusk and dawn, especially if visibility is reduced due to lighting conditions.

          Daytime Running Lights (DRL): In some countries, including many in Europe, vehicles are equipped with daytime running lights that automatically illuminate when the engine is running. These lights enhance the vehicle's visibility during daylight hours and are separate from the main headlights.

        • General speed limits: Urban Areas: In built-up or urban areas, the speed limit is typically 50 kilometers per hour (km/h) or lower. This can vary depending on local regulations and specific road conditions, so it's essential to watch for speed limit signs.
          Rural Roads: On rural roads outside of urban areas, the speed limit is usually higher, often ranging from 70 km/h to 90 km/h. Again, be attentive to posted speed limit signs, as limits can vary depending on the specific road.
          Highways/Motorways: On highways or motorways, also known as autobahns or expressways, speed limits can vary. In many cases, the default speed limit on these roads is 110 km/h to 130 km/h, but there may be sections with lower or higher limits, particularly in areas with challenging terrain or heavy traffic.
          Variable Speed Limits: In some areas, especially on highways or motorways, variable speed limits may be in place. These limits can change dynamically based on factors such as traffic flow, weather conditions, or construction zones. Variable speed limits are often indicated by electronic signs above the roadway.
          Special Zones: Certain areas, such as school zones, residential areas, construction zones, and areas with high pedestrian traffic, may have lower speed limits. These limits are typically marked with signs indicating the reduced speed zone.
