Renters must adhere to the following rules:
Hosts and Renters are not permitted to smoke in any carSHAiR cars at any time. If a Host delivers a vehicle and there is evidence of smoke, vaporized substances, aerosol fumes, or ashes, the Renter must report it to the carSHAiR Team immediately prior to beginning their trip and must not accept the vehicle into their possession. The Renter will be reimbursed for the entirety of their trip. The carSHAiR team will assist the Renter in locating the next nearest available vehicle for the Renter. Please allow up to 3-5 business days for processing reimbursements.
If a Renter picks up a car and there is any indication of the use of tobacco-related products, e-cigarettes, and or vaporizers, Hosts may be charged a flat fee of $50 and may have their vehicle removed from the carSHAiR platform. $40 will go to the Renter as a credit towards their next trip (not cash) and $10 will go to carSHAiR for processing fees. The Renter will also receive a full refund for the trip.
If a Renter returns a Host’s vehicle and there are odors, vaporized substances, aerosol fumes, and or ashes, the Host must report it to the carSHAiR Team within 24 hours of the completed trip. The maximum fine for vehicles under $135,000 is $150. For cars valued over $135,000, the minimum fine is $200 and the maximum is $500. This fee will be charged to the Renter. At carSHAiR’s discretion, the Renter may also be removed from the carSHAiR platform.
