You pay for your trip when you book it. We take care of the payment upfront so when it's time for your trip, you can just get in and hit the road.
When you click on "Rent this car", your card will be authorized* for all relevant initial charges and these charges will be settled once the owner confirms the trip.
If you incur additional fees (for additional mileage, parking tickets, damage, etc.), we may charge any of the payment methods you have on file, so please make sure that you have the proper funds available.
* If you are paying for your trip with Apple Pay or Google Wallet, your payment is charged when you request the trip.
