Customer questions about Calgary car hire

I'm looking to hire a car in August to drive from Calgary to Vancouver, but was wondering how much an additional driver costs please?

Hi, this depends on the rental agent selected, you can view by clicking 'book' on any car and under 'Extra's' you will be able to add the additional driver and the daily rate will be displayed. Some rentals will include free additional drivers so it's worth checking to see if that works out cheaper overall.
