Traveling can be a lot more convenient when you have a car. You can get around your destination without relying on cabs, ride shares, or public transit. And until recently, traditional car rental may have been your only option for getting a car while visiting a new city.
Now, there’s an affordable alternative to traditional rental options. Using the Avail app to book a car share can get you a great ride while also saving you time, money, and hassle.
With car rentals, you work with a company that owns a fleet of cars. Car sharing — also known as peer-to-peer car sharing — is different. You use a car sharing app, then you reserve a car that’s owned by a real person who lives in the area you’re visiting.
Is sharing a car better than renting one? Everyone has their own needs and preferences but sharing a car does have several advantages over renting.
Working with a car sharing company can definitely save you money. Here's why:
Avail is a car sharing service that offers advantages that you won’t find at traditional car rental companies. We connect car owners with drivers looking to borrow a car through our mobile app and website. Car owners get paid for lending their vehicles, while borrowers get a reliable and affordable ride whenever they want.
Car owners drop their cars off at Avail’s secure lot for a professional cleaning — inside and out. Then, you can borrow their car and hit the road ASAP. No lines. No hassle.
Avail is committed to honest pricing,which means that you’ll be given an itemized list of costs when you book. Whenever charge extra fees to our 18-24 drivers, no security deposits are required, and your trip includes Allstate insurance coverage and 24/7 roadside assistance.
