Only the person named as driver on the rental agreement with the rental company is insured to drive the hire vehicle.  However, additional drivers can be nominated and are charged a fee per day to cover the cost of additional insurance.  The cost for an additional driver varies by rental company.  It can be anywhere between around $10.00 - $13.00 per day, excluding taxes and surcharges.

For some of our suppliers, the following are exempt from the fee but must meet all other driver requirements: spouse, domestic partner, renter's employer or fellow employee, or designated driver of a renter with disability.

Avis, Budget, Hertz and Enterprise do not charge a fee to add an additional driver.
