Car hire in China

Learn everything there is to know about hiring a car in China so you can be properly prepared for your next trip

What side of the road do people in China drive on?

In China, drivers are required to drive on the left at all times. Not doing so can result in traffic violation tickets.

How good are the roads in China?

The road network in China has been scored 4.7 for its quality (1 lowest, 7 highest). This puts it at 42 in the world out of 137 other countries. Roads will vary significantly within the country’s different regions, so use scores as a rough guide or reference for comparison.

What is the drink driving limit in China?

The BAC limit is 0.02% in China - this applies to both visitors and residents. Your BAC level is a measurement of the percentage of alcohol in your bloodstream. This information is used to determine how inebriated an individual is. Driving a vehicle with a BAC higher than 0.02% is against the law in China and you will be deemed as ‘driving under the influence’. Keep in mind that there are stricter penalties for those who drink-drive and are under the legal drinking age. In China, you must be at least 18 to drink.

How much does petrol cost in China?

On average, you can expect to pay €1.09 per litre for petrol in China. Keep in mind that this is last week’s national average price and petrol prices may vary across the country. If you aren’t set on hiring a car in China, then consider Kuwait. Petrol prices there are some of the cheapest in the world at €0.32 per litre as of last week. Hong Kong is another great place to visit and rent a car, but keep in mind that petrol prices can be expensive at around €2.89 per litre.

How old do you have to be to hire a car in China?

Among different countries, including China, the minimum age for drivers varies. In numerous EU countries, drivers must be 18 years old. To hire a car overseas, you'll generally need to be at least 21, and if you're under 25, a young driver surcharge may be imposed. It's recommended that you review the policy of the hire company you're considering before booking.

What documentation or ID do you need to hire a car in China?

All drivers must have a valid full driving license when hiring a car in China. If the license is written in a different language from the country of hire, an International Driving Permit may be required to avoid the risk of potential fines. If you're hiring a car overseas, you may also need to provide proof of return travel and accommodation information during your stay.
