We’ve mentioned the new trend of peer-to-peer car rental before, as companies look to rent out your own car to other drivers instead of relying on gobbling up oodles and oodles of their own PT Cruisers and related rental relics. It looks like Wheelz is one of the latest rental car shares to hit the scene, and they just might be the big thing. It doesn’t hurt things either that they just got quite a little cash infusion from the rental car pioneers over at ZipCar.
Wheelz does its thing by hooking up people who need some wheels with folks who aren’t using their wheels. That means you might just be taking out your neighbor’s car for a spin. The premise is simple, and they even have a cute little animation to explain things to you. Basically Wheelz installs a little bit of travel technology within your car—free of charge—and then you’re ready to rent it out.
Rentals are covered with 24/7 tech support and there’s also a million bucks in insurance coverage—just in case. The Wheelz app can help you pinpoint a car, book it, and pick it up. Rates start around $50 or $60 per day depending on what you choose, so it's pretty darn affordable.
