It's like a rental, just better.
RentMyRide is South Africa’s first car sharing marketplace where you can book any car you want, wherever you want it, from a community of local car owners in major cities and towns. You can choose from a unique selection of cars near you, while owners earn an income to offset the cost of their car.
We founded RentMyRide to allow mobility for everyone and change the way that people use cars. With the average car sitting idle 65% of the time, we knew there had to be a better way to put these cars to better use. By providing a safe and seamless way for people to share cars with each other we want to change the way the world thinks about car use and car ownership.
A pioneer of the sharing economy and travel industry, RentMyRide has a safe, supportive community with over 25,000 members. Whether it is a Polo for commuting to work, a small truck to help out on moving days, or a sporty convertible, RentMyRide lets you book cars that will be are part of your experience.
RentMyRide is building a car sharing platform based upon trust & community. Keeping you safe is a top priority.
