What responsibilities do I have?
RentMyRide is not only a platform, but also a community of like-minded individuals, working together to make the world a little greener and transportation a little smarter. As such, it’s critical that you treat your renters with the utmost respect.
Make sure you:
- Create a comprehensive description of your car and special things the renter should be aware of — this will streamline the process for both you and your renters.
- Promptly accept or decline Pending Trips (if you don’t respond in less than 48 hours, the request will automatically expire, and after 2 expirations, your car may be removed from the marketplace).
- Respond promptly and courteously to renter inquiries.
- Be on time for the key exchange at pick up and return.
- Keep your car clean, well-maintained and smoke-free.
- Remove any personal belongings (they are not covered for replacement)
- Verify the driver’s license of the renter at the start of the trip*.
- Use the Trip Checklist to document fuel level, kilometers, and any damage to the car before and after the trip.
- Leave feedback after every rental.
- Be nice and follow the community rules!

*When checking the renter’s driver’s license, please ask the renter if you can keep a copy for your records. The renter may comply or seek an alternative to preserving his/her privacy (e.g., blocking out some of her personal information). You have the right to refuse the trip if they do not wish to allow you to make a copy or take a photograph of the license, but we ask that you try to find a compromise.
