Q: In your opinion, what are the advantages of renting your car through our platform compared to traditional car rental companies?

Q: How often do you rent out your car, and has it been profitable?

A: I don't drive my car very often, so I'm able to rent it out. On days when it's not rented, I can use it myself to run errands. This way, I'm able to make money from renting it out while mostly offsetting my own costs.

Q: Have you encountered any challenges or difficulties as a car owner on our platform, and how were they resolved?

A: I have difficulties when dealing with guests who don't often drive. These guests usually have a lot of questions about how to use the features of my car. It usually requires me to arrange for a video call to provide guidance.
