People under the age of 25 are at a significant disadvantage when renting a car. The underage surcharge (a.k.a. young renter fee) for those not aware, is a (hefty) extra per day fee that all rental companies tack on for drivers under the age of 25. While statistics show that drivers under the age of 25 have more accidents, you would think that as long as the driver has the necessary insurance that they rental company would be protected, however as is typical in the car rental industry, there are fees for everything. Given the meteoric rise of rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft, you would think that rental companies would be falling all over themselves to try to attract millennials, but unfortunately this seems to be a case of maximizing short term profit over long term growth.
