Whipcar are no longer trading and have shutdown their operations in the UK.

If you own a car which you don't use every day, Whipcar could help you make money from it by renting it out to safe drivers in your local area.

It's free to join and your car must be in good condition, less than 8 years old and have a valid MOT, road tax and insurance.

Owners can set their own prices, but Whipcar can give you an idea of what to charge using their online price guide. All you have to do is enter your car's licence number, postcode and email address.

Whipcar check each driver's driving history with the DVLA before they can ask to rent your car. They also automatically insure your car during the rental period without affecting your existing insurance.

Likewise, if you are looking at hiring a car then Whipcar have vehicles available from as little as 8, making it a cheaper alternative to traditional hire car companies.

You will need to be at least 21 years of age (and under 70), have held a full UK driving licence for at least 12 months and meet other requirements with regards to convictions and penalty points.

Where can I find out more?

You can find out more about renting out your car to drivers in your area then visit the Whipcar website to register your vehicle's details.

You can also use Whipcar's online checker to locate cars for hire in your local area.

Whipcar have an extensive FAQ section which gives full details on how both schemes work and a full list of terms & conditions can be found on their website.

Have signed up, thank you!! The site wouldn't allow me to add my own car to rent out, as it's older than 8 years! However, I was able to sign up to rent a car in the event that I should need to! I think this is a brrilliant money making, and money saving green idea. Hopefully more people will sign up for this and help to save the environment!!
