With today’s rideshare services, electric scooters and public transit, the need to own a car is dwindling. But sometimes, having access to one could be more useful than your other options. Sure, you have traditional car rental companies like Avis and Enterprise. But there’s now a new crop of car-sharing services that’s more high-tech and at a lower cost.
A General Motors product, Maven is a peer-to-peer (P2P) car-sharing platform that allows car owners to list their vehicles – newer GM models only – for rent when they’re not in use. If you think it sounds a lot like AirBNB, but for GM vehicles, you’re correct!
Maven offers two types of rentals: Car Sharing and Maven Gig. Car Sharing is for short-term rentals and is available by the hour or by the day, while Maven Gig offers cars for rideshare jobs and is available by the week.

How Maven Works
Maven connects GM car owners with people who want to rent it out, either for the short term or to use for their rideshare gig.
For car owners, Maven lets you put your unused car to work. Here’s how to do it in four easy steps:
- Enroll your car. Take just 5 minutes to answer some questions about you and your car.
- Get onboard. A Maven technician will pick up your car to install keyless access, take professional photos and set up your OnStar account for 24/7 support.
- Rent it out. Your car will be available on Maven within 24 hours.
- Earn money. Get 60% from each rental. Payouts are once a week.
- $1,000,000 liability coverage, including comprehensive and collision.
- OnStar Safety and Security coverage.
- Keyless access for drivers (worth $200).
- Complimentary 4G LTE WiFi hotspot to connect up to 7 devices (for compatible vehicles only).
- Get a $150 bonus for listing your car with Maven for 3 months. To qualify, it must be available to rent 50% of the month.
Maven lets you reserve, unlock and pay for your rental with ease from within the app. It’s a much quicker process than what you’d experience with a traditional car rental company. Here’s how it works:
- Using the map in app, check for available cars nearby. When you see a Maven car you want to rent, tap on it to see more information and to reserve it.
- After making the reservation, find the vehicle with the app’s built-in navigation. When you get to your Maven car, use the app to unlock it.
- Drive your Maven vehicle. When you’re done, return the car to where you picked it up and lock it via the app. Then tap “End Trip” to end the reservation.
