    How to Add an Additional Driver to my Rental?

    Additional drivers are recorded at the time of pick up as suppliers do not add these details to the reservation. Additional drivers need to present their driver's licence to the rental staff to be recorded on the Rental Agreement. The charge details and requirements are in the Terms and Conditions of rental under “not included in this quote”.

    Additional drivers have the option to be added before or after the pick-up date if they will not be in attendance upon collection of the vehicle by visiting a nearby depot to present their driver's licence as they will need to be added to the rental agreement before they can drive the hire car. Fees for additional drivers may vary by location but are quoted during the online booking process. To see a full list of additional driver fee per car hire agency, make sure to click here.

    Keep in mind that renter and additional drivers must be over 21 years old, must present credit card or debit card (some suppliers will accept debit cards at most locations) in their own name and show valid driver's licence. For those aged between 21 and 25, a mandatory surcharge usually applies.

    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.
