Frequently asked questions

Yes, multiple guests can drive the car you book on DrivePadi , as long as they are all approved to drive. The primary driver (whoever booked the car) can add additional drivers with no fees or additional charges. Only the primary driver can request to add drivers; DrivePadi hosts cannot do it for you. We encourage you to request to add additional drivers before your trip starts. To speed up the process, have your additional driver create a DrivePadi account and get approved to drive before you request to add them. All drivers must have a valid driver’s license and meet the age requirements for the car you’ve booked. You can request to add drivers via the “Trips” tab in the DrivePadi app without additional driver charges or extra costs.
You can cancel and get a full refund up to 24 hours before your trip starts. If you book a trip with less than 24 hours’ notice, you have one hour after booking to cancel free of charge. If you cancel after the free cancellation period ends, you will be charged a small cancellation fee. In the rare event a host cancels, you’ll be notified immediately so you can book another car, or we’ll help you find one. Your refund can be temporarily held to expedite rebooking, or the funds can be returned to your bank account — your choice.
We offer protection for our guest through our Guest Protection Plan. This plan provides additional protection for guest in case of injury or other incidents during an active trip. The Guest Protection Plan includes: Medical expense coverage for guests in case of injury during a ride. Personal accident insurance for riders. 24/7 roadside assistance. This plan provides additional protection and peace of mind for our guests while using the DrivePadi Technologies platform. Please note that certain terms and conditions apply to our insurance coverage and protection plans. For more information on our insurance and protection policies, please visit our website or contact our customer support team. At DrivePadi Technologies, we are committed to providing a safe and secure platform for all riders and drivers. We believe that insurance and protection are critical components of this commitment and are continuously working to improve our policies and offerings. In addition to our insurance and protection policies, we also have certain requirements and guidelines that must be followed by our riders and drivers in order to be eligible for coverage and protection. These requirements and guidelines include:
To book a car on DrivePadi, you must create a DrivePadi account, be 18 years old or older, have a valid driver’s license, and get approved to drive on DrivePadi. When you’re booking your first trip, you’ll go through a quick approval process by entering your driver’s license and some other information. In most cases, you’ll get approved immediately, and you’ll be set for all future road trips, day trips, and business trips!
Verifying your account on Drivepadi ensures a secure and trustworthy platform for both car owners and renters.

Your safety and the safety of others are our top priority, and the verification process is an essential step in creating a reliable and seamless car rental experience.
Many DrivePadi hosts offer discounted prices for weekly and monthly trips, as well as “early bird” discounts for trips booked a week or more in advance. Get the best deals and lowest rates possible on everything from cars to SUVs by booking longer trips, at least a week in advance.* On your Account page, make sure you’ve checked the box to receive email notifications, and enable push notifications from the DrivePadi app in your phone settings — we’ll send you occasional promo codes, discounts, and deals!
