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 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.

      I've been a renting from San Diego Car Rentals for just over two years. My experience has been nothing but positive. The cars are always dependable, safe and extremely well maintained. It has been a pleasure doing business with Emil, who is very friendly, knowledgeable and always helpful.

  •   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!

      We made a 1 month commitment to rent a car for our son through Emil.  My son drove the car for 2 days when he had an unfortunate surfing accident and broke several bones in his right leg that required surgery and no driving for up to 12 weeks. Emil was so kind to allow us out of our contract due to the severity of our circumstance.  He kept a nominal fee for the 4 days we had the car and refunded the rest.  He is a man of integrity and I WILL do business again with him as our needs require and highly recommend his company to all in need.  

    ANOTHER great thing is that he will rent to young adults under 21years of age as long as you show proof of insurance where most other car rental facilities do not as I did my research.

      This family owned business can solve all of your rental car problems. They will even go out of their way to help you with any of your car needs.

    Emil went out of his way to help me navigate through my car problems and I am genuinely grateful.

    They are extremely professional, kind & helpful. It is super rare to find business' like this these days. You know, the ones that only care about helping you get what you need.  Thank you Emil for helping me get what I needed!

  •   Wow, best car rental experience I've ever had! Everything was so fast, no lines at checkin or checkout, no upselling. Emil runs this business so well and everything goes very smoothly.
    I always like the cars I rent from San Diego Car Rentals better than my own cars.

    I am a return customer, one can save a small fortune renting a used car. I consider Emil a friend after the professional, courteous way he runs his business. This business is the only way I am able to come to San Diego for extended periods.
    Highly reccomend them.

      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!

  •   Sooooo glad I found this place!

    They specialize in long term rentals (minimum 7 days) and their prices are great!

    I called and was quoted a price by Diana for their red 2008 Chevy Impala.
    She sent pictures of the car and payment authorization via email. No deposit or credit card is required. My debit card was not charged until I picked up the car.

    When I picked up the car it was after hours, so the key was in a lockbox and the contract was in the car.
    The car's interior and exterior were both clean.
    The windshield fluid light was on as it was low, but thankfully I did not need to use it.
    Even though the car is 10 years old, it is clean and fully loaded with leather seats and a sunroof.
    There is no bluetooth or USB port.
    I had to purchase an iPhone charger for the cigarette lighter.

    The office is located around back of the strip mall.
    Just return your rental as you picked it up- gas, clean & washed.

    They do not provide transportation to/from the airport. Taxi is approximately $35 one way.

    I definitely recommend this place!
    This is your best bet if you require a rental for minimum 7 days.

    I'll be back...

      The best car rental experience I have ever had. Best price. Nicest guy. I expect car people to just be out for the buck & uncaring about the people. Hurried, pressure to be on schedule.  I guess that has been my past experience. This was an entirely different experience. Great price, caring people. I was late & stressed out. They went the extra mile for me. Stayed late even gave me an extra day when another agency cancelled the truck i needed at the last minute. I'm kind of a small person. Most cars are too big requiring a bunch of uncomfortable cushions. I was given choices as to which car was most comfortable for me to drive.  Invited to sit in, try out & choose the one I wanted  I was given instruction on my chosen car. Time was taken to  to make sure everything was just right.  I actually felt cared about.  I was treated like a family friend. I will certainly return & recommend this business to my friends. The cars aren't fancy, but that is the least of my priorities. This is best way to save money & reduce stress. This is my go- to car rental from now on. Puppy love from Inventing Joy & Furry Folk
