Those sharing with Avail for less than one month earn a fixed amount each day their car is borrowed. Our Avail Plus program — for those sharing their car for one month or longer at our airport locations — offers the same daily earnings, along with additional benefits. These perks include guaranteed monthly earnings, bonuses and rental credits that can be applied when you borrow a car with Avail. See the earnings breakdown for Avail Plus.
Before you share your vehicle, you’ll need to:
At our airport locations: To drop off your car, drive to our lot and our staff will help check you in.
At our neighborhood locations: To drop off your car, park in any open Avail space, lock the vehicle and place your keys in our secure key box.
Every trip on Avail is covered with up to $1 million in insurance from Allstate, along with roadside assistance and 24/7 customer support.
Avail owners are required to have collision and comprehensive coverage on their personal policy (Avail Plus owners are exempt from this requirement). All owners, including owners with Avail Plus status, are responsible for meeting their state’s minimum insurance coverage requirements.
When your vehicle is borrowed, you’ll earn a fixed amount each day based on its class. Standard cars, midsize SUVs and vans earn $20 per day and large SUVs earn $25 per day.
Car owners sharing for a month or longer are eligible for additional income. See the earnings breakdown for Avail Plus.
LAZ monthly subscribers sharing at our neighborhood LAZ locations are eligible for additional income. Learn more about sharing in LAZ garages.
We'll make your earnings available in your Avail account each time after your car is borrowed. You can then transfer the funds to your bank account at any time.
You can modify your listing end date if your vehicle is not being borrowed. However, if your vehicle is booked or already on a trip, then you cannot modify your sharing dates. Go to the Owner Dashboard in your Avail account to check your vehicle’s status.
If you share your vehicle at one of our airport locations, you'll still receive free parking and a car wash. If you share your vehicle at one of our neighborhood locations, you still get a free car wash.
If you’re an Avail Plus owner, you’ll still receive your guaranteed earnings, quarterly bonuses and borrowing credits, even if your vehicle isn’t borrowed.
Someone like you. They may be local or from out of town. No matter where they're from, we always pre-screen the drivers who borrow with Avail — every driver must be 18+ years old, pass a motor vehicle record check and have a valid U.S. driver’s license.
At our airport locations, you must be able to share your car for a minimum of 3 full consecutive days.
At our neighborhood locations, you must be able to share your car for a minimum of 5 full consecutive days.
There is no limit on how long you can share, as long as your vehicle continues to meet our eligibility requirements.
Avail doesn’t accept vehicles with these features:
If you remove a vehicle from the platform or cancel your listing, you’ll receive all of the bonuses you earned during each full cycle (monthly or quarterly) when your vehicle was listed. Bonuses are not prorated or paid for partial cycles.
If you choose to re-share your vehicle at a later date, the previous sharing period won’t apply to future bonuses and you’ll begin earning bonuses from your new listing starting date.
If a vehicle is enrolled in Avail Plus, you’re eligible to receive an Avail rental credit, valid toward borrowing* any vehicle on the Avail platform:
Once you’ve earned an Avail rental credit, it’ll automatically be applied to your borrowed vehicle at checkout.
Rental credits are valid indefinitely. If you remove your vehicle from the Avail Plus program, your rental credits will still be valid for borrowing a car with Avail.
*All owners are subject to our borrower risk assessment prior to booking a vehicle with Avail and using the borrower credit.
If you’re sharing for less than 30 days, you don’t need to receive a third-party inspection to share on Avail.
Avail Plus owners (sharing for 30 days or longer) may choose to have a qualifying third-party inspection to be eligible for complimentary routine maintenance coverage. Those who choose not to receive an inspection can still share their car, but won’t receive any routine maintenance coverage.
You’ll be responsible for scheduling an inspection with Pep Boys and driving your car to and from the appointment, as well as paying the $49.99 fee. You’ll need to tell Pep Boys you are receiving an inspection for Avail and email your completed inspection to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently, third-party inspections can only be performed by Pep Boys. We’re working to add more partners and expand ways to receive a qualified inspection.
If your vehicle fails the third-party inspection, you’ll need to take care of the existing issue with the vehicle and provide documentation that it was fixed before sharing with Avail.
For vehicles that have passed an approved third-party inspection, Avail will cover routine maintenance, including topping off fluids, oil changes, filling up tires, wiper blade replacement, battery replacement, tire rotations, tire replacements and fuse and light bulb replacements.
Avail will only cover “High Mileage” maintenance if the vehicle has accrued 15,000 miles or more while enrolled in the Avail Plus program. “High Mileage” maintenance includes, and is limited to, brake changes, transmission replacement and repairs to broken A/C or heat.
If your vehicle receives and passes a third-party inspection, maintenance coverage will begin on the listing start date.
