Can I add an additional driver to my rental?
Any additional driver (excluding a spouse or domestic partner) will pay a daily fee. Renter’s spouse or domestic partner who meet the same age and driver’s licence requirements of the renter are authorised drivers at no additional charge. Any additional authorised drivers must appear at time of rental and meet age and driver’s licence requirements. There will be an extra charge added per day for each additional authorised driver included in the rental contract, unless other contractual conditions apply.
A spouse or domestic partner is the only permitted additional driver on a rental secured with a debit card.
Corporate Contracts in South Africa are allowed the following additional drivers at no charge:
- Commercial (corporate) rentals
- The renter's business partner
- Employer or fellow associate
All other additional authorised driver situations are subject to a daily charge
An additional driver may only be added to the contract at a rental location and may be added or removed in the middle of the contract. When adding an additional driver in the middle of the contract both the renter and the additional driver must be present at the location.
The system will calculate the charges based on the dates the additional driver was listed on the rental.
All additional drivers must:
- Meet age requirements
- Appear at the rental counter with the primary renter
- Present a valid driver's licence
An additional daily fee may apply for any additional drivers listed on the rental agreement.
