  • get all the instructions you need for your trip, including special usage instructions for the car
  • contact the car owner
  • get the PIN for the fuel car
  • extend your trip
  • see the parking instructions to drop the car back to the right location
  • review the car and the owner at the end of your trip 

and more.

The app currently has some functionality for Owners. You can:

  • Quickly book your car for your own use
  • Generate a code for your car's lockbox
  • See the current location of your car (when it's not in a booking)
  • Edit your car's profile details
  • Update your car's parking (homezone) details
  • View your car's calendar
  • Create and manage blockouts
  • Review your borrowers and see your car's reviews

We're working on building more features for Owners soon, but in the meantime you can still access all the functionality you need through our mobile site.
