Andre Haddad, discusses RelayRides’ agreement with SFO to become the first peer-to-peer marketplace authorized to provide free airport parking and rentals.
It is with great pleasure that we announce that RelayRides is the first and only peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace to be officially licensed by an airport in the US to provide free airport parking and car rentals. We are proud of our partnership with the San Francisco International Airport–while this agreement is a terrific win for RelayRides and SFO, it is an even bigger win for travelers who will benefit from an enhanced travel experience (free airport parking on the way out, and less expensive, broader selection of rentals on the way in.)
How Does It Work?
RelayRides’ free airport parking at SFO is full of features that will make travel a breeze for car owners, including a fast and free parking lot shuttle that takes only a few minutes to go from the new RelayRides SFO lot to the airport, and a complimentary car wash so car owners ride back home in style. Car owners can also rest assured that they’re protected under RelayRides’ $1 million insurance policy. Plus, RelayRides is giving every participating car owner who parks at SFO $20 driving credit to rent a RelayRides car at their destination. Renters will enjoy prices 20 – 40 percent less than traditional rental companies, greater selection of vehicles and unmatched convenience.
Free Airport Parking Beyond San Francisco
We are thrilled that travelers will be able to take advantage of the benefits of peer-to-peer car sharing and free parking at SFO. Additionally, this agreement and the cooperation between us and SFO will serve as a blueprint for how RelayRIdes plans to grow its peer-to-peer parking offering at airports across the country.
A Standard for Cooperation
While it is true that innovation inherently chafes against existing structures, our agreement with SFO is a great example of how regulatory agencies and emerging technology companies can work together and innovate for the benefit of users.
One of the added perks of this announcement is that it comes right before the holiday season, so we encourage all travelers to take advantage of this amazing service. We look forward to expanding these travel options beyond SFO.
