Adding Additional Drivers

How to add additional driver in the US banner

If you wish to add another driver to your car rental agreement, simply make sure they are present when you go to pick up your car from the depot. To ensure that the process of adding an additional driver is smooth and simple, make sure that the driver meets all the car rental companies terms and conditions and that they are aware of any possible extra fees. Did you know that additional drivers can be added at the date of pick-up and after the pick-up date? If you decide to add an additional driver after the pick-up date, simply visit a nearby depot and have the additional driver present their driver's licence with the primary driver. 

Requirements for Additional Drivers

  • Driver's licence: When it comes to adding additional drivers, the potential driver will need to meet the same requirements as the main driver. The same applies to their driver's licence. They will need to present a full and valid driver's licence at the car rental counter in order to be added to the car rental agreement to therefore drive the rental car. 
  • Age Surcharge: Drivers under the age of 25 may need to pay an age surcharge. Keep in mind, when adding an additional driver, they must meet the other terms and conditions outlined by the supplier. This extends to licence validity, age, language of licence etc.

Additional drivers may incur an extra charge . . .

For some car rental companies, there is no charge to add an additional driver if they are considered an 'authorized driver', which often refers to a renter's spouse. The charges to add an additional driver depends on which company you are renting your vehicle from, and which location you are collecting the car from.
