Additional Drivers for your car hire
Add the first driver for free
Open up your car rental to a fellow driver
... at no additional cost *
Only the registered driver is covered to drive one of our rental vehicles but any number of additional drivers can be added to your booking. And now, when you book direct with Avis for UK rentals, you can add the first Additional Driver for free.
Additional drivers must stick to all the same terms and conditions as the main driver and are covered under the same rental agreement.
The most important thing to remember: Every driver must bring along their driving licence when the time comes to collect your hire car. We'll leave you to draw up the driving rota ...
* Free Additional Driver only available for UK rentals
How to book an additional driver
Supplementary drivers can be added during the online reservation process. Once you've selected your vehicle group, you'll be asked to "Choose your extras". Scroll down to the "Free Additional Driver" box to add your first additional driver, at no extra charge.
You can add as many additional drivers as you need, but 2 or more additional drivers will be charged at £12.99 each, per day, capped at 10 days. Just add them using the "Additional Driver" box.
You can book Additional Drivers online or if you have an existing booking you can add a driver by calling our reservations hotline.
Additional drivers under the age of 25 are subject to a Young Driver Surcharge. Under-25s are also only eligible to drive certain Avis hire cars. These details are made clear during the online booking process, but you can also talk through your requirements on the phone by calling our reservations hotline.
Our free additional driver offer applies to:
- One free additional driver. (Two or more additional drivers will be each charged at the standard rate of £12.99 per day, for up to 10 days).
