While I usually write about museum and archaeology subject matters, I wanted to bring an exciting up and coming business with affordable rates and a way to make a couple bucks on the side.
When I moved to NYC from Florida about a year ago, the need of a car quickly turned into a burden. Luckily, I found RelayRides, which offers peer-to-peer car rental with flexible pick-up options, and I now rent out my car through RelayRides car about twice a week.
Like Sue Yerou, a fellow member, “RelayRides was more competitively priced than Zipcar, and it’s just so convenient and affordable.” she says. In fact, in an apples-to-apples comparison between RelayRides and traditional car companies, RelayRides is 20-30% cheaper than traditional rental services—and it’s on average 40-50% cheaper than Zipcar. Furthermore, renting out my car has subsidized the monthly payments of the car and sometimes a little more.
Join the community and list your car online! This means more variety and greater likelihood of finding the perfect car nearby for renters.
And if you are in the NYC area and need a car for a couple of days, please consider my jeep: https://relayrides.com/car-rental/rego-park/jeep-liberty/13151
It is perfect for quick getaway weekends or hauling large items. :)
