What conditions must I fulfill in order to rent a car with Drivy?

To rent on Drivy, you must :

  • Hold a driving licence that is valid in the country where you rent, and have the original in your possession (copies or a declaration of theft or loss is not enough). If you have a foreign driving license, click for more information.

  • Respect the conditions of required age and years of driving license according to the category of the vehicle you rent. See conditions per category.

  • You must also pay for the rental with a means of payment in your own name. Iif you pay with a credit card, you will have to show it to the owner at check-in, except for cars registered in Germany. More about accepted payment methods.

Please also note that you have to :

  • Remain within certain European countries (see full list)

  • Not use the vehicle for commercial passenger transportation (only ride-sharing with sharing of costs is allowed)

  • Remain the main driver of the car during the rental, which means you cannot rent a car on behalf of someone else. However, as long as you are the main driver, secondary drivers can be accepted by the owner as long as they meet the same requirements as the primary driver

In the UK:

  • Have an address in the United Kingdom.
  • Have no more than 6 points on your licence (UK licence holders), no major driving convictions in the last 5 years, strictly less than 2 minor convictions and no driving bans or disqualifications.

If you don't meet the rental conditions, you wouldn't be covered by our insurance. The owner will check the documents at the beginning of the rental and refuse to rent if you don't fulfill the conditions.
