Local and international travellers can pick up and drop off rental cars at a convenient location and enjoy lower prices than may be offered by traditional car rental companies – especially as the latter has a 29% ‘airport’ premium added to the cost.
In Sydney DriveMyCar uses Park & Fly – a shuttle is used to take them to and from a facility just outside the airport.
In Brisbane DriveMyCar has depot, conveniently located several minutes by shuttle from the airport.
You use the website to find a car – there were over 200 listed for Sydney ranging from $22.33 a day to around $150 per day. There was about 60 cars in Brisbane.
DriveMyCar does not own its cars. It uses privately owned cars and prices them accordingly based on vehicle brand and type - a range of luxury to economy vehicles including BMW, Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, Toyota, Hyundai and more.
Chris Noone, CEO of DriveMyCar, said the company has been able to launch the airport services with no additional investment or staffing due to the nature of peer-to-peer renting and the sharing economy.
“As a pure online sharing economy platform, our ability to scale the DriveMyCar business is considerable. Whenever we launch in a new city or location, we don’t have to buy cars, secure a depot, open an office or hire more staff to serve the market, so we can still deliver lower prices to consumers and provide a wider range of vehicles.”
“The sharing economy and peer-to-peer renting taps into existing assets and infrastructure that are under-utilised. We operate a fleet of hundreds of cars but we don’t own a single vehicle. It’s one of the reasons we’re cheaper than the traditional car rental companies.
“DriveMyCar’s new airport services have been achieved by forming smart partnerships with service providers located near the airports. This approach is low cost, very scalable and lends itself to the launch of further airport locations.”
