Time Business & Money has reported passengers flying into San Francisco now have an alternative when deciding on their rental car choice. An innovative peer-to-peer car-share program is operating out of the international airport. Travellers can choose to leave their car prior to boarding their flight, allowing fellow travellers to use their vehicle while they are away.
The company running this program, Flightcar, says it benefits car owners, saving them parking fees, while the hirer will find the cost only a fraction of the price of traditional rental companies. Aside from the ‘free parking’, Flightcar compensates owners with fuel vouchers, a car wash and guarantees protection of the vehicle through an insurance scheme.
Flightcar is looking to expand to other airports in the US.
