Launching by easyJet founder Stelios and Lastminute.com founder Brent Hoberman early next year, the Car Club will allow members to rent out their own vehicles when they don’t need them, teaming up car owners with car renters.
Owners will be able to set the price of their car and its availability, and hirers will be able to use a smartphone app to find and book a car nearby.
Cars registered on the database will be insured by the Car Club during use and will be fitted with an automated car entry and tracker system, so that owners don’t have to be there to rent out their car.
“It’s a compelling customer proposition that will leverage the power of smartphones to enable consumers to save money and time, says Lastminute.com founder Brent Hoberman.
“Car owners can make money wherever they are and car renters find cheaper, more local car rental alternatives. It’s the right moment to launch this.”?
