“This is a better option compared to the traditional rental companies.”

– Cridde Co-Founder, Ahmed Olabode

The app allows users to have the convenience of once-off document upload, verification, and renting a car instantly thus making the car rental process paperless and easy to use. You are able to search for vehicles by City, Review the listings, and book the vehicle of your choice.

Covid-19 has changed the way everyone does business, regardless of industry and Cridde offers a solution through its proprietary technology Cridde Connect, a feature that enables renters to book a car, locate and unlock without meeting the owner, offering a 100% contact-free, no-hassle car pick up and drop off.

Car owners in Johannesburg & Cape Town looking for a way to reduce the financial burden of car ownership can now earn money by listing and sharing cars on the Cridde app. This can be done easily by creating a profile, adding photos, describing your car, and setting your price & deposit.

“At Cridde we strive to build a secured car rental community by ensuring that all renters and vehicle owners are approved and verified before they go live on our platform”

– Co-Founder Ahmed Olabode

The days of conventional car hire are slowly coming to an end and Cridde is certainly taking the world into the future.
