Child Travel Policy

All passengers need to be over 18 to create an account on BlaBlaCar. However, if you have a child who needs to travel, you can book a ride for them using your account, provided specific rules are respected.

Carpooling

If you’re booking a carpool ride for a minor, the following guidelines are required:

  • Children under 13 years old must be accompanied by a legal guardian or an authorised adult with parental authorisation for domestic and international rides.
  • Children 13+  can travel alone with parental authorisation for domestic and international rides. We recommend contacting the driver beforehand to confirm details, agree on pick-up/drop-off location, and arrange for someone to meet at the end destination. 
  • Proof of identity (national ID card, passport) if travelling abroad.  
  • Children under 12 years old and below 135cm should sit in a car seat or booster or in a booster.  

For more information on how minors travel, refer to our T&Cs (Article 4.2).
