Can I just stop by the National counter at my departure airport and be added to the contract?
Both the primary renter and the additional driver have to be present.

Customer service actually told me I can go to the counter in my departure airport, even before the other person does the pickup. The other option is to stop by the counter when they come to pick me up at MCO later that day. Ill try the first option just to see if it really works.

That's a new one to me. Let us know if it actually works.

So the person doing the pick up got his flight delayed and ended up waiting for me to arrive, could not do the test.

Rented a car tonight with an additional driver in the reservation. I included all of their information requested in the initial reservation: DL info, contact info, etc. Chose my car, went to the booth, and wasn't asked for any kind of verification for the AD. Now I want to make sure they're actually on the rental record. Their name is listed on the email confirmation for the reservation, but I never got an email with the rental agreement after checking out of the lot. I looked for the agreement online, but it doesn't seem to be possible to get it on the website or app - my RA number is listed but with no details about the reservation. I've tried calling as well, but offices are closed.

Should I be concerned that the AD may not be covered even though they're on the confirmation? And how do you get a copy of your RA? Seems like this should be readily available in case you were to get pulled over, get in an accident, etc.

I dont have specific experience on extra drivers but for your RA, at Toronto earlier this year at the booth on exit with an ES car I asked for a copy of my RA since I wanted to drive to NY and the border agents may want to see it. The agent at the booth told me these days its just on the National App but he gave me a print out too. I never get emails from National with my RA but always do with Enterprise even at branches where Natiobal and Enrerprise share the same fleet with the same staff.



however the new national app doesnt really give details about your RA but it does have the RA number.


I think if you called National with your RA number found on your app (or quote your emerald club member) you can ask them to verify if your additional drivers are added. You are supposed to have their DL at check out to be added, but I believe for spouses they dont have to be on the RA and are still authorized to drive
