FlightCar Peer-to-Peer Car Sharing to Launch in Cincinnati

According to Betakit.com, a new peer-to-peer car rental service will be launching in Cincinnati, Ohio to give vehicle owners the chance to allow incoming air travelers to rent their vehicle.

FlightCar lets vehicle owners post the dates they will be out of town, relevant car information, the maximum and minimum compensation amount, and the airport they will be flying out from. Others flying into the same airport can then see the listings and request to rent the car, which is parked at a third-party partner lot.

After verifying a valid driver’s license, individual’s driving history and a background check, FlightCar allows car owners to accept or deny the rental request. Following the soft-launch of FlightCar in Cincinnati later this year, the company plans to make its service available in San Francisco.
