AIBU to ask if I need the paper part of my licence to hire a car in the U.K.?!

I am travelling for work this afternoon and about to board the plane. Have realised I don't have the paper part of my licence to pick up my hire car at the other end. Do I need it?
Wisdom of MN help me out please! Google says different things!

I got a new licence recently due to change of address and it came with a letter saying DVLA don't issue paper counterparts anymore just the photocard so I don't think you need it as I don't have one!

As long as you have the photo card part that should suffice. The paper counterpart has been null and void for several years now.

The paper part is no longer valid but you can get a check code to share with car hire places here

The paper counterpart has no use now. All driving licence information is stored online - www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence

You will need the info sharing code that a PP linked to. The paper part of the licence is no longer valid.

This is what hire car companies need these days www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence. Do you know your National Insurance number?

Picked these up as I stepped on the flight so it stopped me panicking the entire time. They didn't even mention it. Off to hit the road now... Thank you!
