I am just investigating car rental for Februaruy trip to UK. It seems that car rental companies there now ask for utility bill / bank statement for ID purposes. I have a UK driving licence but do not have utility bills in my name. Is this something new or has it actually always been thus but is not followed up at pickup ?
I wasn’t asked for anything other than passport and driving licence last year. However, I think they checked that I was on the electoral roll (I am). I had also printed out that online form but they didn’t seem interested in that !
