Rental Car Additional Driver Fees Breakdown

Renting a car is great fun, but being the only driver can be hard, especially if you are planning a longer trip. That’s why it can be a good idea to add a rental car additional driver to your contract for a small fee, and alleviate the pressure of having one driver.

Moreover, if you want someone to drive the rental car and you don’t add them as an additional driver this can cause a lot of issues – particularly if you have an accident. If the additional driver is driving and has not been allocated as an official “additional driver” then your insurance will become invalid. This means everything you spent on insurance will be void.

Fees for additional drivers can vary for every rental company – but sometimes you can find ways to get free additional driver car rental. Depending on the pickup location, supplier company, and associated member companies, there are lots of ways to avoid fees. Find more information about adding an additional driver to your car rental reservation listed below.

Fees

Rental Car Additional Driver Fee

Fees usually start at around $10 per day and can quickly add up. They can vary by location, for example some areas in Europe and the US have laws that mean you don’t have to pay for an additional driver, such as in the state of California. It also matters which rental company you choose to work with.

Additional Driver Fees by supplier:

Alamo: Unless you are a member of Alamo Insider, you will have to pay an additional fee, per day, per driver. the exact fee amount varies depending on car class.

Avis: There is no additional driver fee for a spouse or domestic partner – there is a varying additional driver fee for all non-spouse/partner persons looking to drive.

Hertz: All additional drivers will have to pay an additional driver fee, unless you are a member of Hertz #1 Club (which is free to join), in which case you get a waived free for your spouse or domestic partner.

5 Weird and Wonderful Sites From Around the World

Everybody knows about Stonehenge and Easter Island, the ancient monuments shrouded in legend and mystery that attract tourists like a moth to a flame. Well, we all love history, but if you want to avoid the large crowds, why not try a more modern attraction? There are infinite numbers of bizarre and interesting sites to see on your international travels, and we aren’t talking about the world’s biggest ball of yarn. Of course, art is subjective, but we think the following five sculptures are pretty darn cool and worth a look.

Hombre del Rio – Cordoba, Spain
This giant man has been soaking up the sun while lounging in the waters of the Guadalquivir River since 2006. It is said that the sculpture just mysteriously appeared one day, the government claiming to have never approved its placement. However, Rafael Cornjejo’s 16 foot sculpture weighing more than 4,000 pounds still sits in the river today, delighting every passerby.

Charles La Trobe – Melbourne, Australia
A lot of cities host monuments to their most famous residents, so what makes this statue of Charles La Trobe at La Trobe University so special? Well, it is upside down. The sculptor says this “embodies the notion that universities should turn ideas on their heads.” (La Trobe helped establish the University of Melbourne).

 

Le Pouce de Cesar – Paris, France
This statue of a giant thumb stands 12 meters high and is 4 meters wide. That is over 39×13 feet! It weighs in at a whopping 18 tonnes, more than 39,000 pounds. The statue was creates by Cesar Baldaccini, a world renowned French sculptor from Marseille (born to Italian parents, hence the name). You will find this massive phalange on Paris’ esplanade de La Defense.

The Virgin Mother – Manhattan, New York
A stroll through midtown will reveal a rather unique statue. A mother-to-be stands in all her glory, but she only has skin on half of her body. The other half is a colorful display of mixed metals revealing her skull, muscles, and the fetus she carries in her belly. Some people complain that the statue is a bit too gruesome for their tastes, but it is definitely interesting!

Space Cow – Stockholm, Sweden
Sweden is brimming with bizarre and interesting sculptures, but the space cow may be the most fun. Look up and you will find this guy suspended in mid-air, decked out in a full space suit complete with bubble helmet and oxygen tank. I wonder if cows enjoy Tang…
