Identity verification will reduce fraud and provide assurance for RV renters and owners alike

SAN FRANCISCO, 11th February, 2019 – Onfido, the award-winning global identity verification platform, has partnered with RVshare, the world’s first and largest peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace. Onfido’s AI technology will enable RVshare to reduce fraud and build trust among its national community of vehicle lenders and renters.

Founded in 2013, RVshare makes it easy for its national network of over 60,000 RV owners to rent their extended inventory of trailers and motorhomes out to travelers around the U.S. RVshare is committed to creating an environment for owners and travelers to trust the marketplace they are renting from.

Following a comprehensive trial process, RVshare chose Onfido identity verification partner. “The superior level of trust, security and smooth user experience delivered by Onfido was a key deciding factor for choosing Onfido,” said Director of Business Development Taher Hassonjee. “This is the next step as we continue with our commitment to deliver a safe and trustworthy environment for owners and renters.”

Husayn Kassai, CEO and co-founder at Onfido said, “In an online world, it’s increasingly difficult to build trust – but it’s crucial to the success of businesses in the sharing economy. We’re delighted to be helping reduce fraud for RVshare without adding friction for their community of users, and look forward to supporting them as they scale.”
