Are additional drivers insured?

Yes, additional drivers who are on the rental agreement with you are covered free of charge. The rental company may charge a small "additional driver" fee. You do not need to inform us of the additional drivers' names, as they are insured automatically, regardless of age, country of residence, etc.

Please see 'How do I change the name of the policy holder?' for details on how to change the name/details of the policy holder.

Example

Homer Simpson is taking a holiday with his dad Abe to see the sights of France. To save some money, Homer has taken out a policy with RentalCover.com to save paying the excess costs should either of them have a collision.

On their way to the airport Homer tells his dad about his brilliant money saving idea, but Abe begins to worry he won't be insured if he wants to drive the car. Homer explains that they'll be fine as long as both their names are listed on the rental agreement. Abe is so impressed with how Homer has organised the trip that he offers to buy Homer a donut as a reward. Now everybody is happy. Right up until they realize Homer forgot to book the flight.
