If a Borrower returns your car messy or dirty, take some photos (if the Borrower's trip photos don't already show the issue) and report it to us through the Help Centre. We'll follow up with the Borrower and charge them for the cleaning costs.
You are responsible for keeping your car up to a basic standard of cleanliness so that any Borrowers can feel comfortable driving it, and you're entitled to expect that Borrowers will return your car in the same clean state.
If a Borrower returns your car messy or dirty, please report it to us through the Help Centre as soon as possible (and no more than 14 days from the end of the trip). You can either refer to the Borrower's uploaded trip photos that show the issue, or take and upload your own photos.
It's important that you check your car regularly - either in person or by reviewing the Borrower's trip photos - so that you can identify which Borrower is responsible for the mess. If a number of trips go by without you checking and the trip photos don't show the dirtiness, then we may not be able to charge anyone for the cleaning.
- contact the responsible Borrower
- if the case requires it, charge them for the costs of cleaning and pass the fee on to you.
You will need to ensure that the car is clean before the next booking. You can:
- clean the car yourself;
- use your preferred cleaner; or
- find a mobile car cleaner in the Car care services section when logged in to our website.
If it won't be possible for you to clean the car before the next booking, let us know when you report the issue. We can:
- offer to pass the cleaning cost from the responsible Borrower on to the next Borrower instead, so that they can clean the car and continue their trip; or
- move the Borrower to another car.
If your car requires professional cleaning, keep the receipt for reimbursement.
To leave feedback on the borrower, or prevent them from booking your car in future, leave a review.
