    Adding Another Driver to Your Car Hire in Australia

    additional driver

    It can be a good time sharing the driver's seat especially on long road trips. Rather than one person doing all the driving, it is much better to give them an opportunity to take a rest. VroomVroomVroom has put together this simple guide if you are planning on adding another driver to your rental car in Australia.

    How to add additional drivers?

    Extra drivers must show their licence to the rental staff, in the presence of the primary renter at the time of pick up. They must sign an "Additional Driver" form to be attached to the Rental Agreement and must pay the additional driver fee. Note that the same licence requirements will apply for additional drivers.

    See How to Add Extra Driver for more information.

    Is there a fee for additional drivers?

    Most car hire companies may allow other persons to be added to the booking with a fee. Keep in mind that fees for additional drivers are different at each location, and may vary between car rental companies. You may contact our Customer Care Team should you require any further assistance.

    Can I add a spouse as a driver and how much is it?

    It is free to add the main driver's spouse or life partner as an additional driver to your rental car. There's no need to add him/her to your booking as he/she just needs to be present with their driver licence when you collect your hire car.

    Generally, additional drivers can be added during a rental provided the term and conditions are being complied with. All additional drivers are required to show a valid driving licence at the time and place where they are added onto a rental agreement and must meet the same supplier's terms and conditions.
