Detailed Description

Update

RelayRides, launched in June 2010, is the world's first, and leading, peer-to-peer car rental marketplace. RelayRides connects people who need a car with vehicle owners whose rides would otherwise be sitting idle. Car owners set the price and availability, and RelayRides provides the technology infrastructure and a $1M insurance policy to make the transaction safe and convenient.

Riding the building wave of collaborative consumption businesses such as Airbnb, Rent the Runway, and Netflix, RelayRides is reinventing car rental and is on a mission to fundamentally change the paradigm of car ownership. Along the way, RelayRides is tackling a multi-billion dollar economic opportunity, greening cities by making it easier to live without a car, invigorating local economies, and building stronger communities.
