More questions?

Do I need internet connection to use the cars?
Yes, the internet connection is needed. In particular, your smartphone must be connected to the internet at the moment when the rent is started or finished, and the doors are locked and unlocked. No internet is needed while driving or parking.

Some of our cars have keys which you may use to lock and unlock the doors. But you will still need internet to start or finish the rent. Don't forget to leave the key in the glove box when you finish.

Some of our clients use wifi in nearby cafes or hotels to lock/unlock and start/finish. It is not very convenient, however.

We recommend a local sim-card available at all convenience stores. It usually costs €2 plus say €10 for 1,500 mb of traffic which is plenty for simply staying connected. Our RideNow app needs 30-50 mb to download and a few mb for use.
Where can I drive? Where do I leave the car?
You may drive anywhere on the island of Cyprus, except the occupied territories (so called Northern or "Turkish" Cyprus). It is prohibited to leave paved roads, please no off-roading.

You must return the car to Limassol or Paphos (Home Area) and park on any free parking spot convenient for you. You may start in one city and finish in another — no problem. But it is not possible to finish a rent outside the Home Area. The precise boundary is shown in the app.

You may also finish the rent in the Paphos airport, it costs €19. Enter the "P1 Short & long term Uncovered" parking (green sign), leave the parking ticket in the cup holder between the seats. It is not possible yet to finish the rent in the Larnaca airport.
Do I need to refuel?
Usually we refuel the cars ourselves and you don't need to refuel. The cost of fuel is always included in our prices. The app shows the fuel level in each car, even before you start your booking.

If during your ride the fuel level falls below 25% (a quarter of the tank) please refuel it at any convenient petrol station. Send us the fuel receipt to info@ridenow.tech and we will immediately refund the full cost to your RideNow Credits account. We will also add €1 (refueling from €20) to compensate you for your time, thank you very much!

Unfortunately refund to your card or in cash is not possible.
What if something is wrong during the rent?
Low Fuel
If the fuel lamp lights up please refuel at any gas station. Send the receipt to info@ridenow.tech and we will refund the cost to your bonus account.

App isn't working
can't finish the rent
can't unlock or lock the doors
Check that stick is in P, the car is completely off, all doors are closed. Wait for 30 seconds and try again. If still not working, it is most likely that the car or your smartphone can't connect to the internet. Move to an area with better connection

Flat tire
Stop immediately, do not drive on a flat! Contact us

The car won't start or won't keep running
Don't forget to keep the brake pedal pressed while starting the car.

Some cars automatically turn engine off at traffic lights - this is normal. The engine will start once you press the gas pedal again.

Is there proper insurance?
Third party liability insurance (TPL). TPL is included in all rates.

Collision Damage Waiver+ Protection (CDW+ Protection). Your liability for any damage suffered by a RideNow car is limited to €449. The premium for this is already included in the rates.

TPL and CDW+ Protection do not cover driving (1) drunk or under influence, (2) in the occupied territories, and (3) on unpaved roads. You will be fully responsible (without limits) for the damage to third parties and the RideNow car in these circumstances.
How is my card charged? Deposit?
A deposit is usually not required.

Before you book a car please make sure that you have enough money on the card to pay for your rent.

We require a €30 hold only from the clients who did not pay us on time in the past. This amount is held on your card when the car is booked and released once the rent is finished and paid for. The €30 should become available on your account immediately after that.
How do I save even more?
  • Always finish the rent in the app. Don't forget to finish the rent via the app once you are done using the car. Per-hour and per-day rents do not finish automatically - you have to finish them via the app.

  • Green cars are cheaper. The cars which have not been rented for some time are marked green in the app. A special discount applies to them.

  • Finish on a green parking to get a bonus. Finish your rent on a parking marked green in the app (except for the airport) - get a bonus!
