Frequently asked questions

Can I rent a car through SnappCar?

Sure thing! Just sign up and share your driver’s license (at least a year old), ID (21+ for car, 23+ for van), and bank account with us. We charge a 10 euro registration fee to keep our platform safe. All good? You're ready to rent your first car with SnappCar!

What is Keyless?

We make you the master of the keys with Snappcar Keyless! A magic box installed in the car lets you unlock it with just a tap on your phone. No need for keys or handovers with your neighbours. Just open the app and you're good to go.

Oh no! What happens if I damage the car during the rental period?

No sweat! You’re fully covered by our insurance partner Allianz. This makes car sharing risk-free for both parties. Keep in mind that you always have a deductible of between 250 and 1750 euros. And if you're ever in a pickle, just give a holler to the ANWB, the trusty 24/7 roadside assistance team. They're like superheroes in yellow vests!

Can someone else drive the car?

You can easily add one or more extra drivers to your booking. They’ll be covered by the insurance for the duration of the hire period too. They do have to register and verify as the main booker also did.

Can I take the car abroad?

As long as your neighbour is cool with you crossing borders, you can. Check out the car’s profile on the app to see if they’ve given permission. Good news: for just a small fee your insurance covers driving in all of Europe too.

How does it work with fueling up the car?

It's your job as a renter to make sure the car goes off with just as much fuel as you've been given. To ensure that everything runs smoothly, we do ask you to register the fuel level in our app during check-in and check-out.

Can I cancel my booking?

Plans can change we get it! Cancel at least 24 hours before the start of the booking and we'll refund your payment. If you cancel less than 24 hours before the start of the booking, the booking amount will not be refunded. This will be paid out to the car owner.
