Additional Drivers Fee
If you're planning on a road trip through the US, sometimes sharing the driving can be a good idea. Particularly on long journeys, adding an additional driver to your booking can help you stay alert on the road. While some car rental companies charge a fee to add an additional driver, in some cases there is no fee for "authorized drivers".
Are you an authorized driver?
If you rent a car with most major car rental companies in the United States, the renter's spouse, employer/employee (if traveling on company business), or companions of physically impaired customers may be considered an authorized driver. Authorized drivers do not always need to be present at the time of pick-up, and may not need to sign the additional driver form.
Do additional drivers need to meet the suppliers terms and conditions?
Additional drivers will still need to meet the same age requirements, and be able to present a valid driver's license. It is important to check the terms and conditions as some car rental companies may require authorized drivers to be present at the time of pick-up.
Which car rental companies don't charge for additional drivers?
All of our car rental partners don't charge a fee for additional drivers renting in California as long as they meet all of the requirements. If the drivers are aged under 25, then they may have to pay an underage surcharge. You can add as many drivers as you want as long as they fit in your rental car. Below is the fee for additional drivers.
