About RelayRides

The world’s largest peer-to-peer car rental marketplace

The who and the what

Founded in 2009 and headquartered in San Francisco, CA, RelayRides is disrupting the $60 billion global car rental industry, connecting vehicle owners whose cars would otherwise be idle with people who need a car.

Since its national launch in March 2012, RelayRides has built a vibrant community of tens of thousands of car owners and hundreds of thousands of renters. Owners are able to make hundreds – or even thousands – of dollars a month by simply and safely renting out their cars. From A3 to Z4, renters have access to an unparalleled selection of vehicles at prices up to 40% lower than other car rental options, while enjoying the convenience of renting cars where they’re needed: right in their own neighborhood, at the airport, and everywhere in between.

Backed by top-tier investors, including August Capital, Google Ventures, Shasta Ventures, Canaan Partners, and Trinity Ventures, RelayRides is currently available in 2100+ cities and 300+ airports throughout the United States. With a talented, dedicated team, we’re changing the way people think about travel.
