Does it cost more for additional drivers?

We explain the options you have for multiple drivers for your hire car.

It is usual for car hire companies to charge extra for additional drivers. They do so because they believe that the car is likely to be used more heavily if there is more than one driver on the agreement.

These fees can vary quite considerably from company to company so, if you are intending to add a driver to your rental agreement, do compare a few companies. If you use the MoneyMaxim car hire comparison service, you can click our additional drivers filter to find those car hire deals which include a free additional driver.

Car hire insurers will often cover a number of additional named drivers free of charge on their policies, only charging extra if the second driver wants to rent cars independently of the main policyholder.
