Additional Drivers Additional Drivers
Share The Drive…
Add one or more additional drivers to your rental agreement so you can take a moment to relax while someone else is covered to get behind the wheel. By sharing the driving responsibilities, you can lower the risk of having an accident. Please be aware that if an unnamed driver has an accident, your cover will be invalidated.
Additional drivers are permitted to drive provided they meet the following requirements:
- At the time of picking up the vehicle, all additional drivers must be present with their driver licence.
- If the additional driver is below the age of 25, a surcharge may be charged.
Additional drivers must meet the same terms and conditions as the main driver to be covered under the same rental agreement.
It is FREE for Budget Fastbreak members to add drivers to their rental agreement.
It’s also FREE to add the following people as Additional Driver’s:
- The main driver’s spouse.
- The main driver’s employer, employee, fellow employee or partner, if it is disclosed by you that the vehicle is being rented for business purposes.
There’s no need to add this to your online booking– the additional driver just needs to be present with their driver licence when you pick up your vehicle.
For all other bookings
The additional driver fee will be charged for each additional person added:
|Product||Cost per person / per day||Maximum cost per person|
*Maximum cost applicable including fees and taxes. Prices subject to change.
Can I add a driver to my rental car?
Yes, Budget Australia allows you to add additional drivers to your car rental when you collect your vehicle. There is no charge for the main driver’s partner or spouse, or the main driver’s employer, employee, fellow employee or partner, if the vehicle is being rented for business purposes.
