Can I book a rental car for someone else?
There might circumstances when you need to book and pay for a hire car for someone else, so all the person has to do is turn up, sign the paperwork, grab the keys and drive away.
Although this sounds simple enough, sometimes it is not as straight forward as that when renting a car in Sydney.
Well, yes it can be with A2B Car Rentals.
A2B Car Rentals hire cars are pre-paid in a large majority of situations and the payment card used to secure the hire on the website does NOT have to match the payment card used for security at pick-up.
When booking a hire car on the website, the details (name, email and telephone number) of the main driver is required.
With that said, that doesn’t mean that the main driver has to make the reservation, or even pay for it.
Can I pay for car hire for someone else?
You can use a debit card to book car hire or credit card on the website which does NOT have be in the same name as the main driver of the vehicle.
However as per the terms of the hire contract (you will need to have ticked and confirmed acceptance of the hire terms on behalf of the main driver), the main driver is needs to show a valid credit card IN THEIR NAME when collecting the car.
If you are booking a hire car for someone else, who is under 25, a young driver surcharge will apply to the booking, so whilst you will pay for the hire in advance, if the driver is under 25 when picking up the care, a young driver surcharge will need to be paid at the counter.
When booking the car is is vital that you ensure that the named driver for whom you are booking the hire car meets all requirements as stated in the terms and conditions of the hire, for instance confirmation that they do have a valid license, no pending drink driving convictions, or any other scenarios that might affect their ability to hire a car.
Am I able to pay for car rental extras for someone else?
Unfortunately not, as all car rental optional extras are paid directly at the counter on arrival, therefore these must be paid for by the main driver.
You can reserve optional extras (additional driver, baby seat etc) when making the car rental booking on the website, but they will be charged locally.
