I hired a Ford Focus in Spain when i was 21 without any problems, so i dont think there's an age limit when it comes to driving over there. As you are taking your own car, insurance could be the only issue. Just ring them up and ask if your policy covers you driving to Europe, and see what they say.

I'm pretty sure insurance doesn't cover europe. I think i spotted it in the small print somewhere before on mine. But yeah as Arnold say's, just ask. They'll prob just ask you to pay ?? extra a week or similar.

Some insurance companies offer you to be able to drive for an X amount of days in europe, polices vary though.

Your best bet is to speak to your insurance companies for details.

Regards to age/driving restrictions, I don't believe there are any. Just need to be over 18 I think.
 
less than a month's travel usually won't incur costs, but is dependant on the country. you need to ask.
to be 'legal' driving in europe, you need headlight deflectors, breakdown triangle, and fireextinguisher.
