Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

If I transition from the old Avail Plus or APLO program, what will happen to the current listing days I have accrued?

Your current number of listing days will roll over into the new program, provided your listing has been active and continuous.

For example, if an existing owner was previously enrolled in the APLO program and had a vehicle listed for 250 days, they would be placed into the new program with a credit of 250 days, and would receive the incentives that correspond with 250 days in the program.

Can I stay in the old Avail Plus or APLO program?

All owners in existing programs will be transitioned into the new, enhanced Avail Plus program. We will work closely with our existing owners to facilitate this transition.

What vehicles are eligible for this program?

To create the best experience for everyone, we do not make exceptions: all owners must have a valid, unrestricted US driver's license, and all vehicles must meet the following criteria:

  • Vehicle is less than 10 years old (Current model year minus nine. For example, as of 2021 the oldest vehicle year allowed is 2012)
  • Less than 125,000 miles on the odometer
  • Automatic transmission 
  • Current and valid registration in the glove box. Your vehicle must be registered with a state department of motor vehicles or transportation agency 
  • A clean title 
  • Clean interior, with all personal belongings removed (except for essential transportation safety items like car seats)
  • Minimal preexisting cosmetic damage (If you're not sure, submit a photo at support@availcarsharing.com and we'll let you know)
  • Valued at under $100,000 with no open recalls
  • Seats less than 10 people

 

We will NOT ACCEPT vehicles with:

  • Manual transmission or electric vehicles (Avail will only accept Tesla’s with OBD-II ports)
  • Tinted windows beyond the legal limit in the state you're sharing in (please see here for tinting laws for your location)
  • Salvage or rebuilt title
  • Dealer plates
  • Snow chains
  • Illuminated dashboard lights
  • Political, profane, or excessive bumper stickers
  • Strong smells or vehicles that require excessive cleaning 

Vehicles with handicap license plates can be accepted, but will not be shared with borrowers.

For Avail Plus members only: Avail provides comprehensive coverage for all Avail Plus owners. Avail also does not require that you have comprehensive and/or collision coverage on your vehicle. If you remove your vehicle from the platform for any reason, Avail’s insurance policy will no longer provide coverage.


What happens to my bonuses if I stop listing?

If you remove a vehicle from the platform or cancel your listing, you will receive all bonuses earned for the days your vehicle was listed. If you choose to re-share your vehicle at a later date, previous days shared will not apply to future bonuses, and you will begin earning bonuses starting from 0 days listed.

How does the Avail Rental Credit work?

If a vehicle is enrolled in Avail Plus, you are eligible to receive an Avail Rental Credit valid toward borrowing any vehicle on the Avail platform:  

Once you have earned an Avail Rental Credit, it will automatically be applied to your borrowed vehicle at checkout. 

Credits are valid indefinitely. If you remove your vehicle from the program your Credits will still be valid for borrowing a car with Avail.

Do I have to receive a third-party inspection?

Owners may choose if they would like to have a qualifying third-party inspection to receive complimentary routine maintenance coverage. 

Owners who choose not to receive an inspection can still share their car, but they will receive no routine maintenance coverage.

What is covered maintenance?

For vehicles that have passed an Avail-approved third-party inspection, Avail will cover routine maintenance including topping off fluids, oil changes, filling up air in tires, wiper blade replacement, battery replacement, tire rotations, tire replacements, 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.

How does the inspection process work?

You will be responsible for scheduling and bringing the car to and from Pep Boys. You will need to tell Pep Boys you are receiving an inspection for Avail. You are also responsible for the cost of the inspection, which is $49.99.

Currently third-party inspections can only be performed by Pep Boys. We are working to add more partners and expand ways to receive a qualified inspection.

Can I still share my vehicle if it fails the inspection?

If your vehicle fails the third-party inspection, you will need to take care of the existing issue with the vehicle and provide documentation that they were fixed before sharing with Avail.

When does maintenance coverage start?

If your vehicle receives and passes the third-party inspection, maintenance coverage will begin on the listing start date.
