Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Sharon, who adds a great tip to my tip about Costco Travel:

“Costco Travel is a great source for car rental. They allow a second driver in addition to the spouse of the main driver. Very helpful if traveling with another couple.”

That’s right: The fee for an additional driver is waived on many rental cars when you book through Costco Travel. As written on this Costco Travel FAQ page, “For Alamo and Enterprise, the additional driver fee is waived for rental in the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, and Spain. For Avis and Budget, the fee is waived for rentals in the U.S.” With a little research, I also found that Costco Travel isn’t even the only service to offer this benefit. Here’s a nice write-up from AutoSlash on how to avoid rental car fees.
