Secure and Simple Identity Verification for Car Rental Companies

As a car rental company, you rent valuable tangible assets to your customers for a specific period of time. To protect your business from fraud and loss, it is important to verify the identity of your customer. With our solutions for secure verification of identification documents, you benefit several times over: you identify the customer using a valid identification document and transfer the captured data directly to your follow-up processes.

No car rental without identity verification

In most countries, legal regulations specify the conclusion of a rental contract. As a general rule, driver’s licenses valid in the country of rental as well as identity cards or passports must be verified.

Chip based verification for validating the authenticity of travel documents

Seamless identity verification using an identity card

The national ID card must have Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips and the eID function enabled. The smartphone requires Near Field Communication (NFC) interface as the mobile device acts as card reader and transmits data over encrypted channel to backend servers in your data center.

Identity Verification in 4 simple steps:


The user scans the MRZ code


The user holds the ID card next to the NFC-enabled smartphone


The relevant data is verified with the user

The data is transmitted over a secure, encrypted channel. Background checks verify the validity of the ID card and whether it has been blocked.


The verification process is completed

You may continue with the car rental process.
