If you are not a member of BOVAG it is not allowed to use their model agreement.
What is a car rental agreement?
With a car rental agreement you can make arrangements to rent out your car. It provides for any relevant matters. There are variable costs that come with owning a car, such as driving costs. In addition to this, the rental fee is a payment for the car itself. Both aspects must be laid down properly in the agreement. The agreement also includes arrangements about contingencies, such as damage or traffic offences.
When to use a car rental agreement?
There are many situations to think of when someone else is driving your car. But you must always draw up an agreement. A car is owned by the person whose name is on the vehicle registration certificate. Without additional arrangements, this is the person who is responsible for paying taxes, to pay for damage, traffic fines etc.
You can use this agreement to hire out a car for a short time. If you rent out a car for a longer time, you can make arrangements by way of a car lease agreement (in Dutch: leaseovereenkomst auto).
