Free Additional Driver Car Hire with Car Next Door

Free Additional Driver Car Hire with Car Next Door

If you’re hiring a car, particularly for a longer trip it’s a good idea to have at least one verified additional driver for your rental. In case you get tired, or someone is sick, the last thing you’ll want to think about is: “Are we covered by insurance if we have an extra driver?” or how you're going to organise getting an additional person added mid holiday.


Do we charge for additional drivers, or what is the fee for an extra driver?

We like to keep it simple.

All additional drivers are free with Car Next Door.

Note: The only requirement for any extra drivers when you hire a Car Next Door car is that all drivers must be approved borrowers of Car Next Door.

So if you’re planning on hiring a car with a mate, just both sign up as borrowers (it’s free) and get approved. You don’t need to add them to a list of drivers to your reservation or some other time-consuming activity. As long as they are also verified members of Car Next Door, they can drive and are still fully covered under the same insurance you are.

Become an approved borrower to get access to car hire with unlimited free additional drivers for your car rental!

Anyone over the age of 21 can become an approved borrower, provided they hold a full, open licence. Have a look here for more detailed information on how to become a approved borrower.

Sign up in five minutes, all you’ll need is your driver's licence. Don't pay any additional drivers fees when you need a car ever again!
