CarHopper, a luxury vehicle rental booking platform, has closed $1.5 million in seed funding to fuel its launch into four new markets, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, and San Francisco.
CarHopper is now available on the web and iOS and Android apps in exclusive cities — with plans to continue U.S. expansion over the next year.
Users can select a luxury vehicle, confirm the reservation, and then submit the request. CarHopper vets renters before fleet owners receive the reservation request by conducting a driving record check, according to the company.
“We work directly with the best luxury car suppliers in each city to provide customers with a more seamless experience,” said Bora Hamamcioglu, founder and CEO at CarHopper. “With CarHopper, people can book anything from BMWs to Bentleys to Lamborghinis. We see enormous potential here to provide luxury travelers with the same level of premium service experience they’d expect in any other aspect of life.”
Founded in 2016, CarHopper is headquartered in Miami.
