How do I rent out my car? There’s a number of things that can impact on how much money you can make when you list your car for rent, but following this guide will give you a good indication of what you can expect.

2: Make sure to have all the details of your car. In most cases you just need the registration number/licence plate of your car and the site can look up the information based on this. It also pays to have a good description of your car prepared for the listing along with some good photos.

3: Set you arability and pricing correctly. Most sites will allow you to block your car in a calendar so you don’t get rentals when you use the car yourself. Make sure to keep the calendar updated and set prices according to the market price.

4: Provide good solid customer care. It is you renting out your car, not the site you listed the car at. This means that the better you take care of the renter, the more likely you’ll get good feedback and have them or other renters come back. Make sure the car is in good working order, clean and tidy at pick-up and you then can expect it to come back in the same condition.
