Are international travelers allowed to rent on Outdoorsy?

Yes! Not only that, but international travelers are covered under our insurance program. Many of our international travelers love this about Outdoorsy since it allows them to rent more unique rentals for their adventure instead of the typical cookie-cutter RV rental companies. All qualified renters, domestic and international, are covered for rentals in the U.S. and Canada. Mexico is not covered.

To qualify for coverage, all international renters are required to complete a DMV check through Outdoorsy, for which an international driver’s permit (IDP) and a valid passport are required. In most European countries an IDP can be obtained in less than a day.

Outdoorsy’s turn-around time for an international DMV check can range from one day to a couple of days. After requesting a booking, we will communicate the status of the verification process and driving record check to both the renter and owner.

There is a foreign transaction fee of 3% added to both the rental total and security deposit when using a payment card issued outside of the country in which you’re renting.

We’re not allowed by U.S. government regulations to insure any renter from a country where the U.S. government precludes business relationships. These countries include North Korea, Syria and any country that sponsors or supports terrorism or terrorist activities.

If you have any questions about international coverage or renting from outside the country, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
