Verifying 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 compares your name, date of birth and gender on your ID with your BlaBlaCar profile. If any of the information does not match, BlaBlaCar amends the personal data on your profile so that it matches the information on your ID. 

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

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

Moreover, 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. 

Please note that your age will be displayed on your profile. We do this to ensure our platform remains secure and reliable as displaying your age helps maintain a level of trust amongst our members.
