Car Rental - Additional Driver

I have been pouring through the forums regarding whether or not I should rent a car in Vegas. I have decided that I will, and have gotten good tips regarding constantly checking for good rates because they tend to fluctuate. Prices go from being okay to outrageous, but it seems that when I am able to find a rate that I think would be acceptable then I have to deal with the issue of adding an additional driver which pushes the total cost back up again. My question is are there any rental agencies that don't charge for an additional driver who is not a spouse? (We will be driving to the grand canyon and an additional driver is a must for me.)

most of the corp id codes, costco, walmart, etc., will give you an additional driver for free at alamo.

There is a spot you can enter a corp id code which is different from where you enter the coupon codes. The walmart number is 430710 if memory serves. The costco one is available on their site.

Important to us as well to have the second driver.

Hertz does not charge for the second driver if you are both AAA members.

www.costcotravel.com lists all the rental agencies they partner with and the different options for discounts. They also have the links right on the site with the codes already filled in. We've booked with Avis the last couple of trips and were able to use some good coupon codes and free additional driver to bring our costs below Thrify and Dollar.

Also check out carrentalsavers.com. They list all the codes from the different companies and partners. You can use their search engine, but I usually go right to sites and plunk the codes in myself.

Good luck!

Alamo gives you the second driver free if you join their Insiders Club. It's free.

Make sure you ask about an additional drive in VEGAS. I almost fell into a trap but then realized they had an additional charge for Vegas. Last time I checked - Dollar charges 10 dollars per day for an additional driver - it works as a way to limit my drinking as I am the DD! Good luck.

That's good to know. My entire trip is going to be in Vegas except for when we do a couple of days to grand canyon and valley of fire.

Thanks.

Does Alamo charge for additional drive in Las Vegas if you are in insiders club member ? I have found, recently, that Alamo has very competitive rates.

Again, if you are an Alamo Insider Member, you get the 2nd driver for free.
