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.

      This place is a Godsend! Rental car prices have skyrocketed.  I needed reliable, reasonably priced transportation for a month in San Diego.  I got a nice car, a little older, not flashy, for a great price.  On arrival, staff were professional and got me on my way fast.  Highly recommend!

  •   We needed a car for two weeks. I telephoned ahead and spoke to Diane - she was so polite and extremely efficient. I asked so many questions but she had all the answers. When we arrived the car was waiting. It was exactly what we needed and served us perfectly. The price was excellent. If you need a car anywhere near San Diego try Long Term Car Rental first. Thank you Diane and Emil.

      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.

      Super friendly staff and more than accommodating! I really enjoy the service and hope other renters can follow suit when it comes to being respectful and trustworthy. Haven't had any issues at all with this service and I've been using their vehicles since February!

      This was a great help for me when I was in town for the summer and needed a car temporarily. The prices are super reasonable, the staff was responsive and friendly, and it was a great experience overall. The cars themselves aren't fancy but they drive fine and that's all I can ask for. When there was an issue with the tire on the car I rented, they assisted me in getting it fixed and it was a quickly rectified issue. They did switch the cars on me as compared to what I had originally booked and also swapped out one car after a month, but this minor inconvenience was worth the low prices and the experience booking with them overall.

      They are horrible in communication with you and then threaten to report your car as stolen. Plus give you cars your didn't order. I was paying over $500 a month for a car with no cruise control and dents.
