    Before Your Rental

    I have a booking. What now?
    Great! Now, open the Liigu app and log in using your phone number—the same one you used to make the booking. Next, upload your documents. We'll review them and verify your identity. Once that's done, you're all set for your rental!
    How can I verify my identity?
    Simply follow the instructions in the app. You'll need to take photos of your driver license and an ID document (either a passport or ID card), along with a selfie. In some cases, you may also need to provide a photo of your International Driving Permit. Afterwards, fill in your contact details in the 'Profile' section.
    Who is allowed to drive the car?
    Only the person who rented the car and any verified additional drivers are permitted to drive the car.
    How can I change my booking?
    If you want to modify any part of your booking, such as the dates, times, or extras, please contact us. We'll do our best to accommodate your needs.
    What if I’m late?
    If you experience any delays, please contact our customer support immediately. We will do our best to keep your car for you if you are running late, but we cannot guarantee availability if you arrive more than one hour late. Should the car not be available due to your late arrival, please get in touch with us. We will try to find a solution for you. In this case, a late fee will be applied.
    What about cancellation?
    If you cancel your rental at least 24 hours before the scheduled pick-up time, we will refund you in full. Please contact us immediately if your plans change at the last moment and you need to cancel your booking less than 24 hours before the pick-up. In such cases, we'll charge a cancellation fee of €100 and refund you for the remainder. If you fail to pick up the car and do not notify us beforehand, we will apply a no-show fee equivalent to three days' rental cost, capped at the total sum of your rental.
    What is a security deposit?
    A security deposit is the money that we charge to your payment card 48 hours before you are scheduled to pick up your car. If your rental begins in less than 24 hours, the deposit will be charged right after the booking is confirmed and your identity is verified. You can see the deposit amount when booking a car and in the rental details under 'Important to know'.
    We’ll refund the money no later than 72 hours after you return the car if no additional expenses have occurred.

    Picking Up the Car

    How do I find the car?
    About 30 minutes before your pick-up time, you’ll be able to view your car details in the app, including the car’s location, the licence plate, and a photo of the car in the car park. If you still can’t find the car, please call us at +44 20 4586 9102.
    The car is damaged
    Ugh, that’s annoying for you and for us. Please contact our customer support before you start your rental, and we’ll assist you further.
    How can I unlock the car doors?
    You'll only need our app! Just make sure your phone's Bluetooth is turned on. Once you've found the car, start your rental through the app. You can then unlock and lock the doors directly from the app throughout your rental period.

    During your rental

    Do I need an internet connection to use the car?
    You'll need an internet connection to start and end your rental. However, you don't need internet to unlock and lock the car doors during your trip. Once you've started your rental, the car and your phone connect via Bluetooth.
    The doors will not lock or unlock
    Stand closer to the car and make sure Bluetooth is activated. If the problem persists, try switching to airplane mode. Still nothing? Contact us for further assistance.
    The app is not working
    Make sure you are using the latest version of the app and check your internet connection. If the issue persists, please contact us at +44 20 4586 9102 or via
    What if I have a car accident?
    Stay calm and assess the situation. If someone is injured or if another party is involved, you must call 112.
    Next, call us immediately at +44 20 4586 9102! If you do not report the incident within 12 hours, Liigu coverage will become invalid.
    Fill out the Accident Statement form located in the glove box.
    How do I extend my rental period?
    If you need to extend your rental, contact our customer support. However, we cannot always guarantee that extensions are possible.

    Dropping off the car

    What if I’m late for the drop-off?
    If you experience any delays, please immediately contact our customer support. Should you fail to return the rental car by the agreed-upon time without having extended your rental period, you will lose access to the car. Returning the car more than two hours late will result in a late fee being charged.
    Can I return the car with an empty fuel tank?
    You can, but you’ll need to cover the cost of refueling. We recommend filling the tank yourself because this way you’ll pay less for the fuel.
    Where do I need to drop off the car?
    Return the car to the same place where you picked it up. You can check the exact drop-off location in the app.
    How can I end my rental?
    It’s easy! Follow the instructions in the app. Return the car to the drop-off location, lock the doors and tap End rental.

    After your rental

    I forgot something in the car
    Contact us, and we’ll do our best to get your things back to you as soon as possible.
    When will I get my deposit back?
    We’ll release this sum no later than 72 hours after you return your car if no additional expenses have occurred.
