Are you planning a getaway or going on a road trip and need to hire a car? Regular car hire companies can be a costly expense especially if you consider accommodation and all the other costs involved in your holiday. There are however, other cheaper car rental options available.
RentMyRide is an exciting new concept available in the main cities like Cape Town, Gauteng region, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth, East London and Durban, that connects car renters with car owners. RentMyRide employs the countless cars that are not used for extended periods of time due to the fact that they belong to pensioners or people who only use them occasionally.
What’s in it for you, the renter?
Not only will you rent an adequately maintained vehicle but you can save up to 40% of regular rental fees with RentMyRide.
What’s in it for the vehicle owner?
Car owners can earn any amount between R2500 to R11 000 per month by renting out just one vehicle.
How can RentMyRide offer a 40% reduced price?
RentMyRide doesn’t own any or the vehicles nor do they maintain them. It is a more affordable option than regular car rental providers as they do not have all the expenses and overheads.
How do I go about to rent a car?
It’s as easy as going on the RentMyRide website, creating an account and searching for your ideal rental vehicle. The team will then verify that you are who you say you are to ensure maximum safety for car owners. Once your booking is approved, you can collect your vehicle. It is important that you return the car on the agreed date, but if you wish to extend your rental term, you can submit a new booking request. Please note that this application needs to be approved by the owner before it is valid.
Other things to remember.
- Simply the stipulated individual has the right to drive the rental vehicle.
- Both renter and owner are covered by a R10 million liability insurance policy, in the case of an accident, through RentMyRide. Along with the liability insurance, RentMyRide offers 24/7 roadside assistance.
- Safety is of utmost importance as the owner has to meet all legal requirements for vehicle safety before the listing is approved on the website. The car may also not be older than 15 years.
- Other possible additional drivers should be authorized by RentMyRide as well as by the owner itself.
