Hi there! Private car owners are allowed to rent out their vehicles on weekends and public holidays under the following terms and conditions:

- Vehicle must be registered under the name of a private individual. (Company vehicles are not allowed under the scheme)
- Vehicle is only allowed for private usage only (No chauffeur-driven plate/private hire rentals are allowed)
- Car owner ensure insurance coverage for the period of rental (Hirer must meet the required age & driving experience in the insurance policy)
- Hirer must check that vehicle is adequately covered by insurance for period of rental

Do note that it's illegal to extend the rental period across weekdays.
