Every day, there are thousands of missionaries traveling across our country’s highways on furlough. One of the biggest challenges they face during this time is finding a reliable and affordable vehicle to drive. Righteous Rides is working to help meet this need for missionary vehicles. If you’re a missionary planning a home assignment and want to find out if we have something available for you, read the info below and click either the Pick Up Van in 2023 (or Pick up Van in 2024 button later in the year) at the bottom.
When submitting your request, choosing St. Louis OR New Orleans as ONE of your choice locations for the release/return of a vehicle will increase your opportunity to reserve a vehicle for the dates you request.
Other locations include: Albuquerque, Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Tampa/Orlando, Philadelphia, Reading/Newark, and Seattle.
We are now back after our year of home assignment. Our year was made so much more enjoyable due to the fine efforts of Righteous Rides in providing such a terrific vehicle and wonderful support throughout the year. Thank you for providing this service to missionaries. May God bless you as you continue this partnership with missions.
“It was such a blessing again to have the use of these well maintained vehicles managed by people who love the Lord and serve the missionaries with love and competency! So appreciate all RR is and does for the Kingdom! “
“We are grateful for the great blessing the car is while visiting various churches, annual regional conventions, and conferences etc…. It is a great blessing to be able to rely on the reliable RR transportation daily. Personally we are grateful that the vehicle allows us to travel together as a family as much as possible.”
Note: Righteous Rides was recently forced to cease from offering insurance using a commercial fleet policy. We are currently converting to a model where missionaries using our vans are now required to have a personal auto policy in their name prior to picking up the vehicle. Please see the details below in the Important Information section. We will do everything we can during the reservation process to help you obtain the policy that best fits your circumstances as quickly and easily as possible.

2013 or newer Chrysler minivan, All hubs – $13.50 per day lease.
For usage terms less than 90 days:
Short term usages are available at a rate of $19.50 per day lease.
Due to high summer demand, short term usage is NOT available during the months of JUNE, JULY and AUGUST.
WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCOMODATE LEASES LESS THAN 30 DAYS.
CLEANING FEE: $100, this fee is only charged to you if your van is returned without having been (1) washed, (2) thoroughly vacuumed, (3) wiped down on the interior, and (4) found free of significant spills and carpet stains.
PET FEE: Users who chose to carry a pet in the van will be charged a $250 cleaning fee to cover the additional cost of ensuring that the vehicle is safe for others who may have pet hair allergies. This policy and fee does not apply to required service animals.
EXCESS MILEAGE FEE: Users are allotted 66 miles per day (actual vehicle usage days). Any mileage in excess of this will incur a $.15 per mile charge upon return of the van. Example: 180 day lease, the limit is 11,880 miles (180X66). If the total miles driven was 13,000, and additional fee of $168 would be charged. ((13,000-11,880)X0.15).
