FOR RENTERS

Find a car to rent

Create an account and then perform a search using filters to find your perfect car to rent.

Request to book it

Once you’ve found the rental car of your dreams, click “Hire this car” to send a booking request to the owner. The owner has 24hours to confirm the booking, but they often respond much faster

Make payment

Once the owner of the car has accepted your booking request, follow the prompts to make payment either via credit card or EFT.

Pick up the car

Arrange to pick up the car from the owner or alternatively some owners will deliver the car to you for an additional fee. Together with the owner you do a vehicle inspection and sign the trip checklist. Make sure to make a photo of the signed document so you also have a copy. If something happens during the rental you will be covered by our 24/7 nationwide roadside assistance

Return the car

When you are finished with the car, return the car to the owner in good shape. Shake hands and tell them about the amazing sights you saw in their car.

Review the car

You will receive a review request via email and SMS where you can rate your experience and the car you drove. Reviews are important to us as they help us maintain our level of service and quality of vehicle on our platform.

FOR CAR OWNERS

List your car

List you car and start putting your car to work. Register to create a account and then click on “List your car”. Our calculator will suggest a daily rate that you should rent your car out for. Follow the steps and make sure you add nice photos to increase the likelihood of your car being rented out.

Respond to rental requests

In no time you will start receiving rental requests via email and SMS. All drivers are pre-screened by us, but you decide who gets to rent your car. Respond to the requests and answer any questions the renter may have before accepting the booking request.

Accept a request

Once you are happy, accept the booking request to prompt the renter to make payment. Once payment has been made you will be notified. During the rental your car is covered by our fully comprehensive insurance policy of up to R10 million

Meet your renter

Agree on a place to give the renter your keys and do a vehicle inspection and sign the trip checklist together with the renter. This document will be sent to you when you accept the booking request. The renter can collect the car from you or alternatively you can decide to drop off the vehicle with the renter and ask for an additional delivery fee.

Pick up your car

When the rental period is over, the renter will drop the car off with you. You will do a final inspection of the vehicle and sign the trip checklist together with the renter and then get your keys back.

Get Paid

RentMyRide will pay your earnings on the 25th of the month into your bank account. If there are any extra charges, e.g. the fuel is not on the same level as when you delivered the car, make sure to send us the trip checklist within 24 hours after the rental ended and the receipts within 2 weeks after the rental ended.

Review the renter

You will receive a review request via email and sms where you can rate your experience and review the renter. Reviews are important to us as they help us maintain our level of service and renter quality.
