At the moment Rent My Car does not provide any insurance policy with vehicles offered for hire, we'll try to solve this inconvenience and offer insurance in the future. All claims should be covered by the Owner's insurance policy.

Rent My Car will not be responsible for incidents caused by rentals. Owners and Drivers are fully responsible for their own conduct - we will do our best to police and remove offending parties from future participation.

Rent My Car can remove car from listing, or block user account if the Owner or Driver are not following our regulations.

Vehicle Suitability Policy

As per our eligibility criteria, all cars on the service must be safe to drive, in good condition, clean and tidy. They must not suffer from obvious faults such as tire treads below the legal limit, clutch problems or dysfunctional windscreen wipers.

If a car can not be accepted by the Driver at the beginning of a booking, or the vehicle breaks down during a booking due to unsuitability, the Owner account may be suspended.

Traffic Fine Policy

The Driver is responsible for all traffic fines (such as parking fines, congestion charges or moving violations) incurred during his (or hers) booking. Owners and Drivers should work together to resolve these fines quickly.

If an owner receives notification of a traffic fine or similar offence incurred during a booking, they should first contact the Driver via their Rent My Car profile or by the telephone number provided at the time of booking to make them aware of the fine and give them the chance to pay it directly or transfer it in to their name. The Owner should provide the Driver with the details of the charge and instructions for payment.

If the Driver fails to pay or transfer the fine within 7 days of notification from the Owner, then the owner may email Rent My Car a copy of the violation notification and any further details. Rent My Car will then help resolve this fine with the Driver. In this event, Driver will be liable for a 10.000 ISK administration fee on top of the cost of the fine.
