Host Knowledge

Hosting marketplaces are nothing new but there isn’t a classic car hosting service currently on the market. This means there is a huge gap due to the immense interest in experiencing a classic car for a couple days


All drivers go through complete screenings to ensure their driving safety and criminal history is clean. Only individuals that pass this can rent.

Vehicle Protection

All our plans come with vehicle protections built in incase of any damage to your car. Different levels provide more or less protection based on the insurance you select.

Alternative Investment

Similar to rental properties, classic cars can be utilized to not just appreciate but also earn stable monthly income as well.

6 Months No Fees

No Commision fees with your first 6 months of hosting with ClassicBahn. Just pay normal insurance fees and nothing more to us.

Failure to notify and gain proper approvals will result in your account being deactivated. In addition, you will be personally liable for all damages and related legal fees as well as vehicle insurance claims and damages.


Renter Eligibility Continued Monitoring: ClassicBahn may periodically monitor any renter’s driving record and criminal history to ensure that such renter continues to qualify for membership under our Renter Eligibility Requirements.

Light “wear and tear” that is part of the normal operation of a classic and/or exotic vehicle is an inherent part of renting out a car; the owner is not “protected” against light wear and tear, nor is the renter “responsible” for wear and tear resulting from normal usage of the car. Wear and tear may include engine wear, brake and suspension wear, minor scuffing of the interior surfaces, as well as minor (less than 1 inch in length) nicks, scratches, abrasions or dents to the exterior (including wheels) normally associated with street parking, shopping cart bumps, and the like.

ClassicBahn takes 10% of the daily rate of each completed trip. This fee covers the payment processing, driver verification, listing and availability management and support services provided by ClassicBahn to both the owner and renter during the rental period. This doesn’t include the insurance fee which is based on your plan selection.

Any car that isn’t registered in the state of NY and in good physical and mechanical condition.

Chauffeur services are in high demand for weddings, anniversaries, and other special occasions. Many of our owners who offer this service have fun dressing the part and being involved in the renter’s special day. We recommend that you consider the time involved in your chauffeur service when setting the cost. Further deals or cost changes can be offered after a renter inquires with their specific needs.
