FAQ

How do I get paid?
You will start earning money as soon as Renters start using your Vehicle. We pay cash into your bank account the day after you pick up your car.
The rental income is taxable. You may be able to offset some of your Vehicle’s running costs against the income it generates. Your specific liability will depend on your own broader tax situation and we recommend taking professional tax advice to assess the tax due. The UK government has allowed the first £1,000 of “sharing income” to be tax free. Your income from renting your Vehicle out qualifies for this.
How does insurance work?
When your car is rented, it is fully insured under Karshare’s comprehensive insurance policy, provided by QBE. Your own insurance is not affected. For more information on our policy, please click here
In the unlikely event that your vehicle is damaged during a rental, Karshare will immediately carry out an investigation and take care of organising any repair work required. Should a vehicle have to be taken away for repairs, we will provide you with a courtesy car.
We ask that owners sharing their vehicle maintain a comprehensive insurance policy and up-to-date MOT on their vehicle at all times.
How do you ensure my car is kept clean and sanitisied?
Karshare is committed to maintaining cleaning and hygiene standards for the Karshare community.
The very best sharing experience relies on vehicles being cleaned, sanitised and cleared of personal items by owners, and returned by renters in the same condition as collected.

How does Karshare get paid?
For airport bookings, we take a commission of 40% including VAT when each car rental is made. This covers our staff, our technology and booking systems, administrative support and marketing costs and a margin for the business to continue to innovate. It also covers the preparation of your Vehicle before rental and when you come to pick it up.
