Can anyone else other than myself drive the car?

Only drivers mentioned in the rental agreement are allowed to drive a Autohellas-Hertz vehicle. (see also “Do Autohellas-Hertz allow Additional Drivers?”)

Does Hertz allow Additional Drivers?

Yes, you may add an additional driver onto your rental agreement.  This must be done at the time of rental.  The additional driver must present a valid driving licence at time of rent.  You can also add an additional driver onto your rental agreement during your rental.  To do this the driver and the additional driver can visit any Autohellas-Hertz Rental location.  The additional driver must present a valid driving licence and must comply with age restrictions.
