How do I verify my phone number?

To maintain trust and reliability within the BlaBlaCar community, drivers need to provide and verify their mobile phone number before publishing a ride and passengers must have a verified mobile phone number to book a ride. As on-the-go communication is crucial to a carpool ride's success, landlines are not accepted.

To add and verify your mobile phone number: 

  1. Go to your Profile > About you
  2. Scroll and tap Verify your phone
  3. Select your country (the country code will be added automatically)
  4. Enter your phone number
  5. Click continue and we’ll send you an SMS with a 4-digit code (this can take a few minutes)
  6. Enter the 4-digit code

After verifying your phone number, you can manage your message notifications by going to your Profile > Account and choosing Notifications

Note: Only after a booking is accepted, phone numbers on an account will be displayed to the other party, whether you're a passenger or driver. The number is saved on your profile, and is not displayed anywhere else on the site.
