We all have times when even our best-laid plans get upended. That’s why we give your money back on many prepaid reservations if you notify us at least six hours before the scheduled collection time. Be sure to double-check the policy — sometimes it’s not an option. Can’t find anything there? Our Customer Service Portal is always here to help.
Ease of parking, affordability and excellent mileage are just a few reasons compact cars are the top choice in Osaka. Their smaller size makes them perfect for city exploring. They’re a good fit for solo adventurers, couples and those on a budget. Of course, how you cruise around is totally up to you! Go even smaller with an economy or mini, or give yourself more space with a full-size or an intermediate. Chasing a little luxury? Browse our premium rides.

You’ll need to be 18 and over to jump behind the wheel of a rental vehicle in Osaka. Be aware that young drivers may only be able to rent from a few car classes, such as compact and economy. Higher age limits usually apply for specialty and premium vehicles. Additionally, many companies will charge an additional fee for young renters. Read the rules carefully before booking and factor any extra fees into your holiday budget.
A current driver’s license and a credit card in the same name are essentials. Opting out of the company’s insurance plan? In that case, you’re also likely to need proof of your own coverage. The requirements may differ between rental companies, so have a thorough read of your policy.
In Osaka, as with all of Japan, motorists drive on the left-hand side. Take it slow at first and build confidence driving on the opposite side if it’s your first time.
You’ll require an International Driving Permit, in addition to a valid U.S. License, to take the wheel in Osaka. This document lets you legally drive in many countries, so apply for one in the weeks ahead of your trip.
