- TravelCar offers flier-to-flier airport rentals at SFO, LAX
By Carolyn Said - Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
If that premise sounds familiar, that’s because it was the pitch for FlightCar, a San Francisco startup that abruptly shut down a year ago after burning through some $40 million in venture backing and setting up operations at 12 U.S. airports. [...] a French company called TravelCar is launching very similar peer-to-peer rental service — a self-styled “Airbnb for cars” — in the United States. “Our mission is to help travelers spend less and eliminate the useless waste of vehicles” sitting in long-term parking, said TravelCar CEO and founder Ahmed Mhiri. Many locations generate enough revenues to cover operating costs; the company as a whole expects profitability in 2019. April Rinne, an independent advisor specializing in new business models, said she thinks peer-to-peer airport rentals are a viable business model, but the main barriers to U.S. entry will be psychological. Two other companies that let people rent their cars to strangers, Turo and Getaround, pitch their peer-to-peer rentals as a way to generate extra income. [...] TravelCar offers cheap parking as a way to expose its brand to potential customers. TravelCar charges around $30 a day for travelers who rent other people’s cars; renters are responsible for refueling it. TravelCar recently raised $20 million from European investors including French car maker Groupe PSA to fuel its U.S. expansion.
