- OF THE SERVICES OFFERED BY KAVAK
The User may access the KAVAK Platform to Buy a used Vehicle published by KAVAK ; and/or to request the installment sale with interest with reservation of title on a Vehicle; and/or to Sell a Vehicle of his/her property. The list of Services that KAVAK offers to its Clients are as follows:
4.1. Vehicle Purchase
When a Customer or User wishes to acquire ownership of a Vehicle offered by KAVAK , through the same Platform; or in person at an Exhibition Center or Showroom authorized by KAVAK , the Customer must follow the following process:
Vehicle Purchase Process:
1) Buyer Registration: To become a Buyer, the Client or User must register on the Platform, indicating his/her full name, full home address (street name, outside number, inside number and zip code), email address and telephone number, and such other details as may be required by KAVAK , in accordance with the provisions of clause 4.6. of Clause 4 of these Terms and Conditions, or you must enter the Platform through your user account, if you have already registered previously, in accordance with the provisions of Clause 4 of these Terms and Conditions.
Vehicle Selection: The Buyer may view the Vehicles available for purchase by accessing the Platform under the option "Buy a car" or "Buy". The Platform contains a comprehensive catalog of Vehicles available for Purchase. Each Vehicle published is certified by KAVAK , in accordance with the Inspection process. For each Vehicle available for Purchase, the Platform displays photographs showing the exterior and interior of the Vehicle, as well as details of upholstery, accessories, tires, and the various parts of the Vehicle that can be seen with the naked eye, and may display, if applicable, photographs relating to specific details such as scratches, dents, among others.
In addition, the catalog includes some features of the Vehicle, including, but not limited to: manufacture, model, style, year, mileage, engine, color, number of doors, passenger capacity, horsepower, traction, transmission, VIN or serial number, license plate number, Stock ID number, Sale Price or Total Price of the Vehicle, and location details of the Vehicle, i.e., the Showroom where it is physically located. The photographs shown are actual photographs of the Vehicle, and are for reference only and not limiting the details that the Vehicle may have.
If the Buyer goes to the Exhibition Center where the Vehicle he/she is interested in is physically located, he will have access to information on the Vehicle, in the Technical Data Sheet displayed on the Vehicle: make, model, style, year, mileage, engine, horsepower, traction, transmission, VIN or serial number, license plate number, Stock ID number, Sale Price or Total Price of the Vehicle, among others; which may be consulted and expanded through the Vehicle´s QR Code. KAVAK strives to show on its platform every piece of information pertaining to the Vehicle; however, it may happen that some of them may not be published on the Platform or are not easily seen in the photographs, which cannot be sued as basis for liability towards KAVAK .
KAVAK may publish, through the Platform, any possible third-party reports concerning the Vehicle´s condition. KAVAK disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy of such reports.
When the Buyer wishes to advance in the Purchase process, he/she can select the "I am interested" option.
2) Reserve the Vehicle: Next, the Buyer has two options: The "Schedule a visit" option, in one of the Showrooms where the Vehicle is available, so that the Buyer can physically see it. The "Reserve" option offers the Buyer the possibility of reserving the Vehicle for a period of 7 (seven) days, during which time the Buyer may inspect the Vehicle by visiting the Showroom where the Vehicle is located, without any other interested third-party having the ability to put on hold or Reserve the same Vehicle.
2.1. About the Reservation: In order to move forward with the Purchase process, the Buyer must Reserve the Vehicle through the KAVAK KAVAK Platform, in all cases, in the understanding that the Reservation is valid for 7 (seven) days. When putting a Vehicle on hold, the Buyer must pay KAVAK , by way of security deposit, a reservation fee (the "Reservation Fee") of 29.46 OMR (Twenty Nine Omani Riyals and Forty Six Baizas), which may be paid by credit card, debit card, interbank transfer, or bank deposit.
After the Reservation of the Vehicle and the payment of the Reservation Fee have been made, KAVAK shall contact the Customer, coordinate the Purchase and, if applicable, the collection of the Vehicle and schedule dates for full payment and delivery of the Vehicle to the Buyer.
Prior to the delivery of the Vehicle to the Customer's address, or to any KAVAK showroom, the Customer authorizes to cover 100% (one hundred percent) of the delivery in question and this amount will not be refundable even if the Customer ultimately decides not to go ahead with the purchase of the Vehicle.
The Reservation Fee is 100% refundable. When the reservation is made through the Mobile Application or the KAVAK Platform, the amount is not charged to the Customer's account, as this amount is withheld (funds are frozen) until the time of payment and therefore it will not show on the bank statement. This amount (OMR 29.46 ) may appear in the bank statement as pending, in transit or some other similar status depending on the Banking Institution. When the Client makes the cancellation, KAVAK instructs the bank to release the amount and it will show in the balance again.
When the payment is made by any means other than the KAVAK Platform or Mobile Application as mentioned in the preceding paragraph, the money is refunded via bank transfer to the bank account provided by the Client (The account has to be in his/her name). Once the amount is released by KAVAK , this deposit will show again on the bank account within 15 (fifteen) to 30 (thirty) business days, depending on the Client's Banking Institution.
It is worth mentioning that, upon requesting the refund, KAVAK will contact the Client through the WhatsApp application/text message with instructions to follow the Cancellation Procedure. The Client will have to verify certain information such as details of the bank account where the refund money should be paid into. It will take KAVAK approximately 7 (seven) to 15 (fifteen) business days to release the payment internally, provided the Client provides the correct information. The refund will only and exclusively be made to the Client's bank account and for no reason to any third party.
3) The KAVAK Platform will calculate on an approximate basis and on the understanding that the same may vary because payments are required at a later date, the applicable taxes and duties, as well as expenses related to the transfer of ownership of the Vehicle, vehicle registration and delivery fees. Such additional costs will be added to the Sale Price to present the Buyer with the total value of the Purchase. The aforementioned fees and costs may vary depending on the Willayat or Area where the Delivery and registration of the Vehicle takes place. KAVAK may apply a delivery charge for transporting a Vehicle from one KAVAK location to another, or for Vehicles moved outside of the delivery zone. Additionally, if a Buyer decides to make an additional purchase (e.g., purchase KAVAK Total), such charges will also be calculated and displayed for the Buyer as he/she navigates through the “Reserve a Vehicle” process.
Thereafter, KAVAK shall arrange for the Sale and Delivery of the Vehicle, in favor of the Purchaser, in accordance with the following:
A. Vehicles with license plates: KAVAK will complete the Sale of the Vehicle by (i) delivering the Vehicle and the Vehicle Documentation to the Purchaser and providing the Purchaser with all the information and notifications related to the Purchase; (ii) complying with the completion of the vehicle documentation, including but not limited to: Sales contract, original invoice, proof of payment of duties, registration card, original license plates, proof of vehicle verification, emissions compliance certificate, among other documents related to the Purchase of the Vehicle; (iii) receiving payment for the purchase of the Vehicle; and (iv) ensuring that the Vehicles have an up to date vehicle verification, for which there is a period of 30 (thirty) calendar days, with the exception of the sale of Vehicles without license plates.
B. Vehicles without license plates: KAVAK will complete the Sale of the vehicle by (i) delivering the Vehicle, and the Documentation, to the Purchaser, and will provide the Purchaser with all information and notifications related to the Purchase; and (ii) receiving payment for the purchase of the Vehicle. In the case of the sale of Vehicles without license plates, it will be the responsibility of the Purchaser to carry out all those procedures required for the Vehicle to circulate, releasing KAVAK from this responsibility.
KAVAK may use a third-party payment agent ("Paying Agent") to collect the Sale Price of the Vehicle from the Buyer through a payment account associated with his/her KAVAK account. The processing of payments will be subject to the Terms, Conditions and Privacy Policies of the Payment Agent, in addition to those associated with these Terms and Conditions. KAVAK is not responsible for errors of the Payment Agent. By agreeing to enter into a transaction with KAVAK , the Buyer agrees to pay through the Paying Agent all charges in accordance with the applicable payment terms and authorizes KAVAK , through the Paying Agent, to charge or remunerate its selected payment provider.
The Selling Price of the Vehicles offered will be communicated prior to invoicing and includes KAVAK 's Profit Margin but does not include the cost of change of ownership, license plates, delivery fees (if any), duties, taxes or related charges.
The Sale Price is calculated at the time the Vehicle is Reserved through the Service and determined based on the location where the Vehicle will be delivered and the Willayat where it will be registered.
The Purchaser and KAVAK will enter into the relevant Contract in accordance with the Terms of Sale and Purchase. The Purchaser agrees that payment for the Purchase of the Vehicle may only be made by electronic bank transfer to the account specified by KAVAK . Under no circumstances will KAVAK accept payment in cash. Payment must be made prior to or at the latest upon Delivery of the Vehicle. The Vehicle shall be free of any lien or encumbrance at the time of Delivery. In this respect, at the time of Delivery, KAVAK undertakes to deliver to the Purchaser the original Vehicle Documentation.
Furthermore, the Purchaser accepts and acknowledges that the Home Delivery of the Vehicle is subject to KAVAK 's Coverage Area, where KAVAK reserves the right to decide in which locations it may or may not deliver the Vehicle. KAVAK will advise the Purchaser, if applicable, the place where the Purchaser may collect the Vehicle; or the Exhibition Center or Showroom in which the Purchaser may collect the Vehicle.
The Buyer accepts and acknowledges that the Delivery of the Vehicle may be delayed for circumstances beyond KAVAK 's control. Accordingly, KAVAK cannot give any guarantee as to the exact date for the Delivery at the time of the Reservation; therefore, the estimated Delivery date will be subject to change, which will be notified to the Purchaser through the KAVAK Platform.
4.2. Vehicle Sales
When the User wishes to Sell a Vehicle using the Services through our Website or Mobile Application, from October 25, 2021, KAVAK is offering an additional OMR 9.85 (Nine Omani Riyals and Eighty Five Omani Baisas) or more for it. This applies to all vehicles model year 2010 to date and that meet the selection criteria in accordance with our Terms and Conditions.
The User must provide basic information on the Vehicle, including, but not limited to the make, model, year, version, condition, history, mileage, and any other information requested by KAVAK . Please note that vehicles with a theft report or theft-recovered vehicles will not be accepted.
If the Vehicle meets KAVAK 's selection criteria, the User may receive an offer or several types of offers from KAVAK as set out in this section, depending on the characteristics of the Vehicle and the market situation at that time; however, KAVAK reserves the right to make or not to make an offer for the Vehicle owned by the User.
Upon an Initial Offer to Purchase, KAVAK and User shall schedule an Inspection for the Vehicle with a qualified KAVAK inspector. If necessary, User shall provide additional information regarding the identification of the Vehicle, including full name of the owner and location of the Vehicle in order to conduct the Inspection, as well as any other documentation requested by KAVAK during this process.
The Initial Offer Price issued by KAVAK is not fixed and may vary at any time after the Inspection for mechanical, electrical and/or electronic overhaul, as well as the corresponding analysis of potential legal discounts.
The Inspection may be scheduled at the User's home, in accordance with the conditions that apply for Home Services; or it may be scheduled at one of KAVAK 's Authorized Centers and/or Exhibition Centers, from Monday to Saturday, between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M.
When a vehicle is sold by Part Exchange and the Customer decides to make his Satisfaction Guarantee, he may get his vehicle back provided that; (i) the Vehicle has not been parked or sold by any other Customer, (ii) he assumes the cost of repairs and expenses incurred to the Vehicle in question and (iii) he decides not to receive the full Price of the Vehicle with which the Offer was made to him.
Inspection: For the day of the Inspection, the User must have the Vehicle washed (exterior, interior, engine, tires) and vacuumed, i.e., in excellent condition to be photographed. Before handing over the vehicle to KAVAK the User is obliged to remove all his/her belongings; KAVAK is not responsible in whole or in part for objects left inside the vehicle. Likewise, the Vehicle must have the necessary vehicle verification certificate of the Willayat where the Vehicle is registered and in force for up to 6 months.
The User agrees that the Inspection will include not only the review of the general condition of the Vehicle but also a verification of the mechanical condition and the performance of a test drive, where the car can be driven at speeds of 100km/h (one hundred kilometers per hour) or more. In the case where the Vehicle is not fully insured, the KAVAK inspector may refuse to perform the Inspection, including the test drive. In the event that the KAVAK inspector agrees to perform the Inspection and the test drive on a Vehicle not fully insured, the User will be fully responsible to cover any costs or expenses related to any damage, dents or total loss of the Vehicle in the event of an accident during this process.
Each Seller agrees that, in the event of providing false, incomplete or incorrect information, whether personal or related to the Vehicle, any agreement between the Seller and KAVAK relating to the purchase of the Vehicle by KAVAK shall be null and void and of no effect to the parties; the Seller shall be liable and shall compensate KAVAK for any loss or damage that may be caused to KAVAK or its Users arising from false, inaccurate, incomplete or incorrect information, regardless of any civil, commercial or even criminal actions to which KAVAK may be entitled.
In the event that a traffic accident occurs during the test drive inspection, KAVAK may purchase the Vehicle under the Immediate Purchase option. However, in the event that there is no agreement for an on-the-spot purchase, KAVAK may choose, if applicable, to (i) bear the cost of the insurance deductible or (ii) make the corresponding repairs to the Vehicle at its own expense.
The KAVAK inspector will also verify the make, model, year, version, mileage, condition, history, invoice and registration of the Vehicle. Likewise, the inspector will verify the documentation of the Vehicle, including, registration card, certificate of verification, payments of tenure or endorsements and invoice of the Vehicle, including, where appropriate, direct verification with the automotive agency of origin and any review in order to confirm the ownership of the Vehicle. In the event that there are co-owners of the Vehicle, they must also be present at the time of signing the Sale and Purchase Agreement, after KAVAK has verified the co-ownership of the Vehicle.
Upon completion of the Inspection, KAVAK will inform the User of the types of offers, at its discretion.
The User will be able to choose the offer he/she wants and therefore the Determined Price; such price will be the amount for which KAVAK will acquire the Vehicle. The types of offers that KAVAK offers are described below:
i. On the spot offer: KAVAK will purchase the Vehicle on the spot, where 100% (one hundred percent) of the payment for the Vehicle will be made within 48 (forty-eight) hours.

iii. Part Exchange: KAVAK shall take the Vehicle in the event that the User wishes to Purchase another Vehicle from KAVAK , and the Parties shall be obliged to pay the difference, as applicable.
iv. Other offers: KAVAK reserves the right to include other types of offers. Such terms and conditions shall be set out in the Purchase Agreement.
In all types of Offers the User accepts and recognizes that the Prices established by KAVAK will be informative until the moment of signing the Contract; therefore, while the Contract or Contracts have not been formalized, the Prices specified by KAVAK will be considered as quotations that may be modified according to the particular circumstances of the Vehicle and always at the discretion of KAVAK .
In the Post-Inspection Offer issued by KAVAK , the Profit Margin offered to the User may decrease or increase depending on the Inspection, as well as on the revision of the Vehicle documentation.
The Profit Margin offered for the Vehicle during the entire process will not be negotiable once issued by KAVAK , either at Inspection or Post-Inspection and will be issued solely and exclusively through our Website, Mobile App or via message.
Prices are fixed, non-negotiable, and are based on a number of factors, including the market value of the Vehicle at the time of Inspection, as well as the cost of required repairs or as determined by KAVAK , as the case may be.
4.2.1. About Vehicle Verification
The Seller is obliged to deliver all the necessary documentation to KAVAK , including invoice, tenure payments, vehicle verification, registration card, payment of fines and other necessary documents. For the case of verifications, the Seller accepts and recognizes that he/she is obliged to have passed the vehicle testing test done by RTA. KAVAK will not accept Vehicles that do not comply with the pertinent emission controls or Vehicles with holograms "1" or "2".
In this sense, in the event that the Vehicle is purchased within the two-month period in which it is to be verified, the Seller shall be solely responsible for carrying out such verification, obtain the passing certificate and deliver such documentation to KAVAK . KAVAK may also verify the Vehicle and may deduct the service from the agreed offer. In the event that proof of such verification is not shown, it will be considered as a cause for early and immediate termination of the relationship between KAVAK and the User, including the termination of the Contract, without any liability for KAVAK .
However, in the event that any Vehicle tendered has any type of fine for verification and/or untimely verification, KAVAK may deduct the amounts necessary for the payment of such fines from the amount of the Determined Price and this will be stipulated in the Contract.
In the event that KAVAK acquires the Vehicle within the deadline to perform the vehicle verification, in accordance with the calendar issued by the corresponding authorities, KAVAK may deduct the amount resulting from the payment of such procedure from the amount of the Determined Price. However, if the Vehicle has not been collected, the Seller is obliged to carry out the procedure at its own expense and obtain the corresponding RTA certificate, but in case of not obtaining it, KAVAK is authorized to deduct the amounts corresponding to the fine and/or untimely verification from the Determined Price. On the contrary, if the Vehicle has been collected, the Seller authorizes KAVAK to deduct from the amount of the Determined Price, the necessary amounts to carry out such procedure in the name and on behalf of the Seller, being the latter obliged to cooperate with KAVAK and deliver any document that may be necessary for such purpose.
If the Vehicle is purchased prior to the two-month verification period and provided that the Vehicle is up to date in the payment of such procedure, KAVAK will cover the corresponding amounts to carry out the verification. However, the Purchaser accepts and acknowledges that in the event that the Purchaser acquires the Vehicle prior to the two-month verification period, such expenses will be borne entirely and exclusively by the Purchaser.
4.3. Sales Agreement for payment in Installments with interest with reservation of title of a Used Vehicle.
KAVAK may, through the Used Vehicle Sale and Purchase Agreement, facilitate payment in installments with interest with reservation of title for Buyers through relationships with Grantors; or through an installment sale scheme with interest with reservation of title granted by KAVAK or through any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, only in applicable cases. The Buyer who requires an Installment Sale with interest may select, from the KAVAK Platform and having previously selected the Vehicle of his interest, the option "Apply Installment Sale with interest" during the Reservation process. The interested Buyer must fill out an online form, suggesting an installment payment period and a down payment and must provide information requested by KAVAK through the Platform, so that the Grantors can subsequently determine the authorized installment payment limit. Once the installment payment limit has been set and the Buyer accepts the rate and terms offered, KAVAK completes the Installment Sale with Interest application on behalf of the Buyer and when the Vehicle is delivered to the Buyer, the Buyer must sign the documents required by the Grantor.
Payment in installments is administered by the Grantor or its agency, directly with the Buyer, therefore, KAVAK has no responsibility for the granting of credit, nor for the conditions specified by the Grantor; therefore, the Buyer releases KAVAK from any liability arising from this transaction. The Purchaser agrees that KAVAK or any of the Grantors may verify his/her credit record via a credit bureau. In addition, the Purchaser agrees to accept the terms, conditions, policies and notices of any Grantor that may grant any installment sale service with interest, releasing KAVAK from any claim that may arise from these concepts.
Likewise, I declare that I know the nature and authorize the scope of the legal relationship that is generated when requesting an installment sale with interest of a used vehicle and the information that will be requested for the use that KAVAK will make with such information and that it may make periodic consultations of my credit history, consenting that this authorization and legal relationship is in force for a period of 3 (three) years from the date of issue and in any case for as long as we maintain legal relationship.
4.4. Vehicle Leasing
KAVAK offers Vehicle Leasing, in any of the options published through the Platform, to its Customers or Users. The User must select the vehicle of interest and fill out a form entering the term and the residual value. Subsequently, he/she must provide KAVAK with the information requested, so KAVAK can evaluate the Lease request and calculate the monthly payments. Once KAVAK approves the Lease request and in the event that the User is satisfied with the conditions established by KAVAK , the Parties will proceed to sign a Lease Contract.
4.5. KAVAK KAVAK Coverage
