Which UK car hire companies do not charge for additional drivers?

Posted on December 12, 2011 by . 0 comments

Every hire car is insured for the named driver, i.e the person who books the vehicle. Additional drivers are usually charged at extra cost, sometimes this is a flat fee on top of the rental charge or it can be a daily rate. Additonal drivers can be added when you collect the vehicle but it is usually cheaper to book in advance.

In the UK Economy Car Hire (click to compare rates) offers free additional drivers with all rentals.
