The world’s largest peer-to-peer car rental marketplace
Founded in 2009, RelayRides is the world’s largest peer-to-peer car rental marketplace. We connect people who need a car with vehicle owners, whose car would otherwise be idle. Think Airbnb for cars.
Our mission is to disrupt and reinvent the $60 billion global car rental industry. To do so, we are assembling the world’s largest and most engaged community of car owners and renters, with the most diverse fleet of vehicles. From sedans to trucks and hybrids, RelayRides delivers convenient and competitively priced rentals in a safe, trusted marketplace environment.
Since its national launch in March 2012, RelayRides has built a vibrant community of thousands of car owners. Owners are able to make hundreds of dollars a month by simply and safely renting out the cars they already own, better utilizing an idle asset that loses value overtime and requires significant maintenance costs.
Our marketplace attracts tens of thousands of renters, thanks to an amazing selection and diversity of vehicles, great value (up to 40% cheaper than other car rental options), and the convenience of having cars where people need them: right in their own neighborhood, at the airport, and everywhere in between.
RelayRides is currently available in over 1,900 cities and over 290 airports throughout the U.S. We’re proud to say that our business has generated incredible buzz and press coverage, including the Wall Street Journal, CNN, The Economist, Time, and the ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, just to name a few.
RelayRides is headquartered in San Francisco, CA and has raised $19 million from top-tier investors, including August Capital, Google Ventures, Shasta Ventures and GM Ventures. With a talented, dedicated team, we’re changing the way people think about car rental, and we’re excited to be changing the landscape of personal mobility.
