Rental between individuals

A rented car must be insured by the owner like any other vehicle, whether it is rented by a company or an individual. While there is specialized auto insurance for corporate fleets, individual owners must turn to traditional auto insurance. Private car rental also spares the driver any maintenance spending.

There are two types of car rental: professional car one and rental between individuals like that offered  for instance, by Get Around. It needs to be said though that the most common way of car rental consists of taking a vehicle from stations reserved exclusively for this service and then returning it to the same location. Then, there is the “free floating” car sharing which consists of making vehicles available to users within a defined area. Users can thus locate an available vehicle via the geolocation of their smartphones and book it.
