Any way to get a minivan for somone under 25? Or a way to add him as an additional driver?
Renting in NYC?

Yes.
Won't be able to get a minivan from any of the big companies. Probably the same with the smaller ones.

What about a Heimish company?

For an additional driver, that could work*. Just make sure to use a corporate code that waives underage and gives free additional driver.

*My one experience with a similar situation was before I turned 25, I had a reservation with Enterprise in Brooklyn for a premium car. When I got there the agent said he can't give me a premium since I'm under 25.
I asked him if he can switch the reservation to have DW (over 25) as the main driver, and have me be secondary.
He said that would work, as spouses can drive for free as secondary without him adding anything to the rental.

Not sure if him adding me to the rental would've not allowed him to give us the premium.

I'm specifically asking about National as it's half the price of anywhere else. I can't find a heimish place that has.
I don't even really mind paying underage for him.

I've never rented with national before. Is there a reason to worry when it says "your reservation is confirmed. An email has been sent... Upon arrival please proceed to the national car rental counter" does it always say that? Or is it only because its the first time I'm renting?

Are there any legitimate corporates (ones that I can join), that offer free underage?

Are you renting from a location that has an aisle?

You made a reservation and don't know where you're renting from?
