Can I Add an Additional Driver to My Rental Car? (US and Canada)


Yes, additional drivers are allowed, if the following criteria are met:

  • All additional drivers must:
    • Meet all age requirements
    • Appear at the rental counter with the primary renter
    • Present a valid driver's license
  • An additional daily fee may apply for additional drivers.

How much is the fee for an additional driver?

This fee varies by region, but typically averages $15.00 per day per additional driver and applies to any additional driver except the following:

  • There is no additional driver fee in the US or Canada for authorized drivers. Authorized drivers would be a spouse or domestic partner (either same or opposite sex), or for one surrogate driver for a mobility impaired renter who meets the location's rental requirements.
  • Note: State law in California, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon and Wisconsin allows a spouse to be an automatic authorized driver provided they meet minimum age and driver's license requirements.

In order to determine the exact fee, you will need to select a location and the dates for your rental on
