Is There a Fee For an Additional Driver?

additional driver fee

Our suppliers will all allow you to add an additional driver to your booking. In some cases, an extra fee may apply, and they will be required to present their driver's licence upon pick up.

Which car rental companies don't charge for additional drivers?

Currently, only Hertz does not charge for additional drivers. However, they must complete an additional driver form and present their licence in the presence of the lead renter to the staff at the rental counter during pick up. Aerodrive also doesn't charge for an additional driver, but if you add another one you need to pay a fee.
