The additional driver option for rental cars in Spain

Book an additional driver

Book an additional driver

In Spain you can also book an additional driver for your rental car. However, this is usually only possible when you pick up your rental car from the local rental company. This means that this cannot be added to the price comparison by booking as an extra. However, since many of the offers in the price comparison already include a second driver, you also have the possibility to select an offer directly at the time of booking in the price comparison, which already includes the additional driver option. This saves you time and money. Have an awesome trip!
