Car Rental Options for Additional Driver

Are you thinking of adding another driver to your long term rental car to drive in San Diego and Los Angeles counties? Then you can do so with consummate ease. Using our simple platform, you can make sure that one or more new drivers can be added to the list, making sure you can drive your car with total confidence and comfort. If you intend on doing a lot of driving, then sharing the load and the challenge can be very important for a whole host of reasons.

By adding in more drivers, with a common maximum of three additional drivers, you can share the load. Now, you can avoid being the designated driver for the whole trip. You will normally pay an additional daily fee per driver, so keep that in mind. However, some deals will come with free additional driver slots depending on the size of the package etc.

We recommend that you consider this closely, though, as finding the best deal is always important.

Who is the main driver?

The main driver will be the person who is legally responsible for the car. They will be the contract signee, and the person who started the rental agreement. This is normally either the person makes the booking, or the person specifically nominated from your party.

Who can I make an additional driver?

Really, it does depend on a variety of different reasons. Many times, the rules will include making sure the person is over the age of 21, and has been a full-time driver for at least two full years. If you would like to find out if any other rules that apply to your San Diego rental, feel free to ask. Young drivers fees and additional costs will remain the same for additional drivers as it does for the main driver.

How can I add a secondary/additional driver to my policy?

Depending on who you book-up with, you can normally add the extra driver during the booking process. Otherwise, your best bet is to contact the company and add them to the policy. However, most of the time, you cannot pay for and confirm additional drivers until the day you pick-up the car; they must present all asked for evidence and proof before they’ll be accepted, also.

When booking direct with a longtermcar.com, you will normally be asked if you wish to add anyone else to the policy. Be sure to answer clearly and make sure you are happy about additional driver rates etc. beforehand.

How much does adding more drivers cost?

It depends on the entire policy. Most of the time, an extra fee is charged per day to rent the car in SD and to insure the additional drivers. You should ask ahead of time what the cost would be, though, as the costs can often differ from company to company. Most charge a flat fee, some offer various deals and promotions.

  •   These guys are awsome. This is my second time getting a rental from them. Monthly rental rates are affordable, and the office works with you if you need a little time with money for the next month. They are also quick to get you back on the road if you have any problems at all. I rented a car for over 3 months. In that time i needed the battery swapped out once. And then there was a leak another time, and I needed brakes changed another time. They got a tow out to me and gave me a loaner car until they fixed the car. Its great not having to worry about maintenance. All I had to do was call and say what was wrong and they handled it or sent me to the shop for maintenance. Im almost sad that my car is done being repaired because I will miss the customer service. I know i will use them again tho. Thaks guys for being so awsome.!!

  •   These are the kinds of small businesses that I love to support! I was in San Diego for business.  I needed a car for the week. I spoke with Diane at San Diego Car Rentals. She said our cars are about three to five years old and are in excellent condition. I really don't need a brand new rental car. I saved easily a few hundred dollars compared to the usual car rentals at the airport.  My four year old car was in great running condition. It had 55K miles on it and ran beautifully. It was clean inside and out and the body was damage free. I recommend San Diego Car rentals if you want to save some bucks.                                  

    PS...remember to bring your lock box code (she will email you the code) to get your rental car keys when you arrive.

      Emil and Diana are great! Emil has kept touch and gives great advice. They have the best deals in the state. Their deals are better than any service out there. Even better than those places that has cheap in their name. Their cars are pretty good and they ensure to keep steady communication with their customers. I'm glad that I ran across this company because they are a great business and actually care about their customers and the community. They truly have great prices and great cars. The offer regular vehicles and premium which are around 2018 Base models.

    They get a great amount of business because of their fair deals. I highly recommend that you book a reservation if you are in need of a vehicle because you can also rent monthly. They will be sure to help you. Check them out!

  •   Awesome car rental business! I have been renting a car from this business since March and I am very happy with the car and their customer service. Plus their rates are a huge plus. There are no hidden or added fees and the car I rented was in really good condition.

    Most importantly I have been kindly helped by both Emil and Diane. They both are courteous and professional. I strongly recommend San Diego Car Rentals and I plan on using them again and again.

      HANDS-DOWN the best car rental service in San Diego. I've rented from here twice now and there has never been any issues. Emil is a fantastic person and he responds quickly. I have never experienced any hidden fees, which every other car rental place tries to screw me over with. Emil is flexible and tries to work with his customers so that he can provide them with whatever needs they have. What you see is what you get!

    10/10 would recommend to anyone.
