Our Vehicles

Connected car and telematics data

Our vehicles may be equipped with telematics devices such as pre-installed event data recorders, global positioning devices, OnStar® and other communications systems that may be connected to the Internet or cellular services. We (and at times the vehicle manufacturer and other authorised third parties) may collect information from these telematics devices and other services and technologies and use and share it as described below or as otherwise set out in this Privacy Policy. This information is associated with the vehicle only and maintained as de-identified or anonymised data and will only be linked for the purposes and in the situations described below.  Any information that is linked to you will be treated as personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  You are responsible for informing passengers and other drivers that vehicle data is collected and used as described in this section.

You may also choose to accept or purchase optional devices that enable you to collect certain vehicle data.  Please refer to the manufacturer's terms and conditions and privacy policy. 

The use of telematics devices and other pre-installed services and technologies are subject to our rental terms and conditions and, in some cases, the vehicle manufacturer's and/or technology provider's terms and conditions and privacy policy.  For OnStar, information is available at www.onstar.com.  For other vehicle manufacturers, please visit here.  Some or all of these features may be turned on at all times, even when other services or other media in the vehicle are turned off.  If you are unsure whether your rental vehicle contains telematics devices or technologies or systems, please speak to a member of our team at the rental location.


We collect and use vehicle data as follows:

  • Fuel information: We use this information to facilitate recording and billing for fuel charges.
  • Odometer information: We use this information to facilitate billing for mileage charges (where applicable) and to help us manage our fleet. 
  • Vehicle diagnostic and performance information: We use such information to help us identify vehicle maintenance needs and to manage the fleet.   
  • Information to help us issue certain commands to the vehicle to facilitate your CarShare or Car Club transaction: For example, we collect information that enables us to remotely unlock or lock the vehicle doors.
  • Location information: We collect and use vehicle location information to:
    • Enable our roadside assistance providers to provide you with roadside assistance.
    • Enable emergency service providers to dispatch emergency services to you.
    • Assist us in recovering a vehicle we reasonably believe is lost, stolen or abandoned.

  • Legally Compelled Disclosure and Emergency Circumstances: We may share vehicle information, including location information, where legally compelled or in emergency circumstances.  In addition, in the United Kingdom and European Union, our vehicles are required to be equipped with eCall technology, which is activated if your vehicle is involved in an accident. eCall will automatically call and provide information regarding the accident to emergency services.

Infotainment systems and vehicle manufacturer apps

If you pair a mobile device with our vehicles' navigation or infotainment systems and choose to use OnStar, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto or other similar third-party software or services on the vehicle, personal information and other data may be transferred from the mobile device and stored on these systems. We cannot guarantee the privacy or confidentiality of such information. You should delete all such personal information and other data from these systems before the vehicle is returned to avoid subsequent occupants of the vehicle accessing this information.

If you download a mobile app made available by a vehicle manufacturer or other third parties and register the vehicle in that app, your use of the app may result in the sharing of telematics data and other information (including location information and personal information) with the vehicle manufacturer or other third parties. Your use of these apps is strictly governed by the third-party mobile apps' terms and conditions and privacy policies. Before the vehicle is returned, you should either remove the app from your mobile device or delete the vehicle from the app.
