How to Add Additional Drivers?

adding additional drivers

All of our suppliers will allow you to add an additional driver to your car rental booking at the time of pick up. Different terms and conditions and fees may apply depending on which supplier you are hiring a vehicle from. You can check the Terms and Conditions of rental under “not included in this quote” to see the charge details and requirements.

There is no charge for additional drivers when you book through Hertz. However, they must present their full licence in the presence of the renter and must sign an “Additional Driver" form to be attached to the Rental Agreement any time during the rental. Fees apply for additional drivers for all other suppliers.

Requirements for Additional Drivers

  • Driver's Licence: All additional drivers must be over the age of 21 and hold a full driver's licence for a minimum of 12 months. Driver's licence must be valid for the period of rental. Probationary licences are not acceptable nor are photocopies.
  • Age Surcharge: A Young Driver Surcharge will apply to drivers under the age of 25.

Our knowledgeable Customer Care Team will be happy to assist you if you have any additional questions or require further clarification.
