In order to keep our service safe and simple for everyone, we have detailed some terms and conditions in this document to which you must agree before starting each rental on our platform. The conditions describe the obligations between SeefyCar and it’s customers. This is a legally binding agreement.
SeefyCar is a brand of Ingenieurbüro Seefried GmbH, Ingenieurbüro Seefried GmbH, their Affiliates, Partners, Employees, Agents, and Representatives.
Vehicle refers to any and all SeefyCar vehicles in their completion including the exterior, interior, and any components, parts, accessories, and installations.
Fare refers to the price reflected in the booking confirmation.
Fees and fee schedule refer to the charges (above and beyond the fare) which are valid at the time of any incident which warrants application of such charges.
A booking is a rental agreement which has a start and end date/time.
The booking period refers to the length of time agreed when booking the vehicle. Execution of the booking begins when the customer starts the rental via the app and ends when the customer returns the vehicle to the agreed return location and correctly closes the booking using the app.
A valid driver’s license is one that legally authorizes one to drive the vehicle in the area of intended operation. For example, if your driver’s license is valid in your home country, but is not accepted as authorization to drive at the location where you intend to retrieve your vehicle, then your driver’s license is not considered valid for the purposes of the SeefyCar booking. Furthermore, SeefyCar requires that the driver’s license has been valid for at least 5 years without interruption (e.g. suspension or other loss of driving privileges).
The minimum age of drivers of SeefyCar vehicles is 24 years old. Anyone can register, however customers will be unable to make a booking unless at the start of the rental period the customer meets the requirements.
As a registered customer of SeefyCar, you understand and agree to the following conditions.
Registration and Your Profile
You certify that all information provided to SeefyCar is factual information about you, the profile holder and primary driver of all SeefyCar vehicles booked (e.g. you may not use someone else’s information when registering). Honest, transparent relationships are very important to the SeefyCar team. If the SeefyCar team discovers that information has been falsified, your profile and driving privileges may be permanently suspended.
By submitting your driver’s license, you certify that your license is valid with no revocations, suspensions, or limitations which would prohibit you from using SeefyCar services.
You promise to keep your profile credentials private, not to share these credentials with anyone else, and not to allow anyone else to use your profile or your booking. If you fear that your credentials have been compromised, you are responsible to inform SeefyCar.
SeefyCar reserves the right to use your personal information or that of any additional drivers named in the booking to request information about the driving record of all drivers connected to bookings. This request would be made to third parties and may include government and regulatory agencies.
SeefyCar reserves the right to suspend a customer’s profile for any reason. During suspension, all terms and conditions remain effective although driving privileges are revoked.
If you decide to leave SeefyCar, you may delete your profile 90 days after your last rental day. This gives SeefyCar time to ensure the last payment is processed and that any potential outstanding traffic violations have been resolved. When all open topics connected to your profile are closed, you may initiate deletion of your profile. The only information linked to you that would remain in our files would be booking, payment processing, and legal records. These records would be maintained for the length of time permitted or required by Austrian law.
After deletion of your profile, some parts of the terms and conditions would remain effective, especially the release of liability / indemnity clause.
Vehicle bookings may only be created and executed if a valid credit card or debit card is on file. and if the deductible amount is able to be reserved. If you become delinquent on your payment obligations for any reason (ex: insufficient funds, rejected payments, etc.), SeefyCar may suspend the profile. In this case bookings cannot be made or executed until all outstanding debts have been paid. SeefyCar may attempt to contact you so that an agreement can be made to remedy the situation. If you are unwilling to cooperate and pay your debts, SeefyCar may decide to assign your debt to a third-party collection agency and/or take legal action against you for the amount due SeefyCar plus the cost of taking such action.
When you enter your payment information, you certify that the credit card registered through the SeefyCar booking platform is one that you are authorized to use. You authorize SeefyCar to reserve the amount equal to the insurance deductible reflected in the booking confirmation and to charge all applicable expenses incurred during the use of the vehicle.
You agree that SeefyCar may transfer liability to you for any additional expenses due to your use of our services and relinquish your right to challenge any fees, tickets, citations, tolls, etc. Additional charges may be incurred at a later date depending on the length of time required for delivery and review. Invoices from third parties will be charged directly to the credit or debit card of the profile holder who made the booking at the time the fees, tolls, citation, tickets, etc. take place or are issued based on either the person or vehicle identified in the request for payment.
All bookings are non-transferable and may only be executed by the profile holder under which the booking was created.
It is strictly prohibited to sublet the vehicle, sell your profile, or let someone else use your profile. Should any of these situations occur, you are liable for all costs associated with the event including damages, tolls, citations, fares, fees, etc. These situations are grounds for permanent profile suspension.
Drivers in addition to the profile holder must be indicated before the final Rental Contract is signed. Additional drivers are held to the same terms and conditions as the profile holder. Additional drivers may not have access to the profile holder’s credentials or profile.
If an unregistered person uses the vehicle during your booking period, you will be held liable for any damages or incidents that occur. Additionally, you may be suspending from using our services in the future.
Upon booking a vehicle, you will receive a booking confirmation and subsequently can find your booking in the app. Upon start of the booking (correct completion of app workflow and signing of Rental Contract), the booking is considered active. After the vehicle has been returned to the agreed location and the app workflow has been correctly completed, the booking is considered closed. You will receive confirmation when the booking has been closed.
SeefyCar reserves the right to reject a booking for any reason and is not obligated to provide services to all applicants.

You will have the option to choose the alternative booking or to cancel the booking.
SeefyCar reserves the right to cancel a booking at any time for a breach of the terms and conditions in this document or if evidence arises of failure to meet requirements for booking vehicles or to pay for the booking and any additional fees related to the booking.
