Renting out a car registered in someone else's name

Short answer:

You can rent out a car that's registered in someone else's name. You just need to get the registered owner to send us their permission in writing.

You will need to:

  1. Check the car is eligible to be rented out
  2. Sign up, if you haven't already
  3. Ask the registered owner of the car to email us stating:

"I <REGISTERED OWNER'S NAME>, as the Registered Owner of car <LICENCE PLATE NUMBER>, am aware and consent to <MEMBERS NAME> sharing this car, and to them receiving the subsequent income. I give my express permission for <MEMBERS NAME> to manage the sharing of my car.


with a clear copy of the owner's driver's licence (front and back) attached to the email.
