FlightCar’s peer-to-peer carsharing service has expanded its operations to include Denver International Airport (DEN) and Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI).

Currently operating at airports in San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Dallas, Austin, San Diego, Portland and Oakland, FlightCar provides its customers with free airport parking as well as the chance to earn extra cash by renting out their unused cars to other approved members.

FlightCar pays car owners when their car is rented, based on the mileage the car is driven, says the company.

“We’re excited to bring FlightCar to another popular east coast city,” said Rujul Zaparde, FlightCar co-founder and CEO. “Today we’re launching at DEN and BWI, and we look forward to building on the momentum we’re seeing in our other cities.”

FlightCar service includes free pick up and drop off in a town car for both owners and renters, says the company. Customers get the benefit of free airport parking and a car wash, even if FlightCar does not rent out their vehicle.

FlightCar's 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, according to the company.

“If you park your vehicle with FlightCar, you are completely covered in any situation,” said Kevin Petrovic, FlightCar co-founder and president. “We provide $1,000,000 in primary liability coverage for you, with no deductible. We also cover the full value of the car in case of collision/damage/theft. Your personal insurance coverage is never on the hook. ...”

Since its launch, FlightCar has continued to expand and has the financial backing and endorsement of several investors, including GGV Capital, Airbnb Co-Founder Brian Chesky and Seacrest Global Group.

    Totally Fraud, I was told I will be charged $1,016 I took the car and next day I check my account I there were two transactions, one was for $1026 and one for $1016 (this one is correct). When I called the support It took me more than 30 mins to get hold of someone there and then they told me it is for insurance and where as when I got the car I told them I already had insurance. Now they are not refunding the money, my recommendation never use FLIGHT CAR (or FRAUD CAR).
