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.

  •   You won't find a better place to do a long-term car rental! Emil is very professional and treats you like a life-long friend. Whenever I have a question or need assistance, he is quick to respond with helpful solutions. My experience with this company has been nothing shy of a five-star service.

    I once locked my keys in the rental, in the rain, with a dying phone -- Emil handled the situation so quickly and had help sent my way immediately to save the day!

    On top of great customer service, the pricing is so competitive. I feel lucky to have fallen into the hands of a company that actually cares for the customer. Thank you San Diego Car Rentals and to Emil for being so helpful!

      I recently rented a Hyundai Tiburon for a period of 3 months, as I just moved back to San Diego for the summer, and decided to rent rather than buy a car.  My experience has been exceptional.  Emil provided concierge-type service that was friendly, professional, and personal.  The car ran well, and in fact, when I had an issue with the windshield wiper, he had it immediately replaced and had the car washed for me as well, free of charge. I really appreciated how quick he was to respond and the attention he gave it. I'm used to renting from bigger car companies and paying a whole lot more.  This is my first time working with a long-term provider, and I will definitely use this company again for my car rental needs.

  •   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.

      I went with Emil and San Diego Car Rentals solely based on one of the earlier reviews. . .and I wound holding onto the car much much longer than I had originally planned on.  Admittedly, it wasn't a Lamborghini. . but you can not beat the price and customer service and at the end of the day, isn't that what you're looking for a rental?? . . .something that's very well priced and gets you from A to B..  Thanks you guys.  Great Job

  •   I have had the opportunity to rent a couple of times from San Diego Car Rentals. The best place for long term rentals. The cars are older but well maintained, the pricing is competitive. Emil  and staff are great, professional and very customer service orientated. Rentals are fast, easy and flexible, something the National companies do not offer. I highly recommend them!

  •   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!

      I chose this company for its unbeatable prices on longterm car rentals. The personal service  was, unexpectedly, as good as I've gotten in any commercial transaction. Emil is a saint -- patient in explaining everything, and devoted to being helpful, flexible and dependable. He's the kind you root for in life, not just in business.

  •   I have searched all of their website and they literally do not have any long term (28 days or more) rentals at the discounted (monthy) price.

    If it's one day less than 28 days then you pay double. This is almost a scam.

      My new favorite place to rent a car long term. Emil was very personable and all their fees are upfront, no games no gimmicks. I will definitely be a repeat customer and will refer others.

  •   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.

      Simply outstanding product and service. We were able to rent a great vehicle on short notice for 8 weeks for an intern who came in from New York. Price was outstanding, owner made pick up and drop off super simple. I would recommend this car rental service to everyone in San Diego that needs a reliable vehicle for an extended period of time....wow!!!!
