Just a quick note today about additional drivers as we’ve had a few questions on the blog about it in the past. I guess it’s pretty much common sense that when you rent a car, only the named driver on the booking is generally covered to drive it. However, it is possible to add additional drivers (as many as you want!) on to the rental so you can share the driving between your friends and family. In the UK this costs £23.50 per driver per rental (but is included free of charge if you opt for Premier Cover). One thing I should note on this is that all additional drivers need to be present when picking up the car to present both parts of their driver’s licence. If in hindsight you decide to share the drivng load, you can always pop into any Avis location during the hire period and add other drivers. Again, you just need to make sure they have both parts of their licence
If you have booked a car to rent in the US then here is a tip for you: your spouse can be added as an additional driver for free! Let me know if you have any questions regarding this product.
