Want to make a little pocket money while traveling, for pretty much zero effort?
Who doesn’t? This is a pretty cool way to make some cash, especially if you travel a lot.
Usually, you either pay someone to drive you to and from the airport, or you drive yourself and pay for the privilege of leaving your vehicle in a giant lot where nobody is really keeping an eye on it. Right? It’s like doggy day care for your car, only it’s not getting walked or groomed or anything.
FlightCar is the world’s first peer-to-peer car sharing company to operate at airports, offering car owners free parking and an opportunity to earn money, instead of leaving their car unused at the airport.
That’s right. You park for free with FlightCar, which then provides free transportation to the terminal. Your car gets exercised in your absence by an approved user, then treated to a free carwash and you get cash based on the mileage driven. Plus, it’s all insured up to $1 million.
FlightCar is operating in markets across the country: Austin, Boston, Dallas (Dallas Love Field), LA, Oakland, Philadelphia, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, DC, Denver and Baltimore. They’ve just expanded to include Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). Expect to see FlightCar opening in more cities in the near future!
- FlightCar service includes free airport pick up and drop off for both owners and renters.
- You get free airport parking and a complete car cleaning even if FlightCar doesn’t rent out your vehicle.
- On the average 5-day trip, members save $100 in parking fees & make $30 in rental earnings.
- Rates vary depending on the year, make, and model but for renters, the fees are consistently 40-50% lower than those of typical rental car companies.
- FlightCar insures each vehicle for up to $1M on property and liability, offering protection for owners and renters. For vehicle owners, the $1,000,000 in liability coverage is primary with no deductible. Also included is full coverage of the car in case of collision/damage/theft.
