Enter your travel dates and search the city or airport where you need a car. As you browse through our unbeatable selection of diverse vehicles, use filters to help find the vehicle that best suits your needs.
Each car’s calendar and description should answer many common questions, but contact as many car owners as you’d like to ask any specific questions you might have.
Once you’ve identified that perfect car, go ahead and rent it. The car’s owner has 24 hours to give an official confirmation, and they often respond faster.
Meet the owner at your trip start time. It’s okay to shake hands and say hello. Before you depart, note any pre-existing damage to the vehicle. Adjust the mirrors and hit the road!
At the end of your trip, replace the gas you used, and return the car and the keys to their owner. Make sure you’re on time!
Don’t forget to say thanks when you leave a review. Your ratings help other renters find the right car.
Create a new listing in minutes. Tell us about your car, add a few photos, and you’re in the marketplace. Update your car’s calendar so renters know when it may be available.
Before your first rental, get your car ready. Put your RelayRides insurance card in the glovebox, double-check that you’re up-to-date on maintenance, and tidy up the interior.
We’ll notify you when somebody wants to rent your car. Check out their profile and ratings and decide whether the trip works for you. Feel free to contact the renter if you have any questions. You’re always in charge of who can drive your car.
Check their license, show them around the car, check the mileage and fuel level, and hand them the keys.
Sit back! RelayRides is keeping your car safe with our insurance and roadside support.
The renter will return your car at the end of the trip. Talk to them about the vehicle condition, and make sure everything’s in order.
Make sure to rate your renter, so other owners can stay informed.
Many cars in the marketplace offer delivery. Book your trip, and owners will drive the car straight to you. A quick inspection and you’re ready to drive off.
Look for the delivery badge in search results, or use the delivery filter to see only cars that can be delivered. When you book your trip, just let the owner know where you’d like to pick up your rental.
At the end of your trip, just drive back to the same location. Renting the car of your dreams has never been easier.
