Dollar Additional Driver Fee

Does anyone know what Dollar charges for an additional driver?
Watching rental car rates for May-I know I still have time BUT Dollar does have some decent rates right now. I'm used to Alamo where the 2nd driver (ie my spouse) is included in the rate. Thanks for your help!!

Check Alamo right now.... I just got full size for 4/16 - 4/27 for $304 - just using insiders and coupon AF4469SDU (one day free - from car rental savers)

Happy that some are getting awesome rates!!!

I keep checking for May 4--May 11(p/u 5pm & d/o 11am) & the lowest I can get with Insiders/$30 off Visa code is $417. And I have cleared my cookies.

Don't give up - I had routinely been getting rates over $700 with Alamo until tonight.

I got awesome rates at both Thrifty and Dollar but they both charge $11 a day for an additional driver! I went with Budget. I have 2 reservations out of Dayton (we are driving) one using the Travelocity code and $40 coupon,mini van for $331 and an intermediate upgraded to full size for $189. Both for 9 days, Easter week.

I have been checking budget several times a day and still getting the same price but it was a pre-pay rate. I was afraid to prepay and then the rates would go down. We are just over 3 weeks out so I went ahead and reserved. I found last night I got a rate $20 cheaper on my phone than on the ipad. I booked on my phone this morning. I don't get why there was a difference, but I will take it!
