Verify your ID

At BlaBlaCar, we're constantly working on making our community as secure as possible for all our members. Verifying your ID adds an extra layer of trust to your profile and you’ll benefit from:

  • Greater visibility: Stand out from the crowd with a special ID verified badge!
  • More bookings: The more other members trust you, the more likely they are to want to travel with you.

How it works

When you upload your ID for verification on the BlaBlaCar app, our third-party service provider will check that your BlaBlaCar profile matches the name on your ID. If this is the case, your ID will be verified.

Types of ID for verification

Depending on what country you are from and your location, you can add your Passport or Driver’s licence. Verifying your ID is optional, but we may ask you to submit your ID  in some cases, like cross-border travel.

What gets shared with the community check-circle (1).svg

Your ID is never shared with anyone else. The photo and details of your passport and national identity card are kept strictly confidential. Neither BlaBlaCar nor our provider will perform any background checks into your past or personal or professional life.

What's more, your ID will not be visible to other people visiting your BlaBlaCar profile. Other members will only see the tick label ID-verified displayed on your profile.
