Company Summary

We are the first company to establish a marketplace that allows vehicle owners who have parked their cars at the airport to rent them out to other travelers. Owners earn money while saving on airport parking, and renters choose from a wider selection of vehicles at lower prices than those offered by the major car rental chains. All of our rentals will be insured with a comprehensive $1 million policy that protects both owners and renters.
