I know the AirBnB for X trend isn't as sexy today as it was a year ago, but some of these companies are really great and changing the way we think about or property. To me, that's the attraction. Life, liberty, and property was the original statement before property was switched with "pursuit of happiness". Now I think those four concepts are becoming one concept. That might be really meta sounding, but our property, our freedom, our lives, and our happiness are boiling down to experience and products that provide outstanding experiences are succeeding!

@UXAndrew Great to see RR on PH, even though it's far from a new company/service. I use them (especially their SFO location) almost weekly.

@kjemperud I really love everything that Shasta Ventures invests in and I check out their portfolio once in a while. This was new for me, even though it's probably not new for others. I've yet to use their service (mainly because I don't live int he States and don't have an international drivers license), but I think it's a great concept.

@UXAndrew It definitely is. You can use their service with a variety of Driver's licenses. I use it with my Norwegian one. But you need to be in their coverage area which I'm guessing is the US for now. Although the company has been around for a while the product has been changing a bit in the last year or so. They used to focus on short term (hourly) rentals, similar to GetAround, ZipCar. Now the focus is on longer term rentals, from a few days up to months. I've heard about interns using it for the duration of their summer internship for example. And with the addition of their SFO service they are starting to compete with FlightCar as well, with significantly lower rates. Would love to see them expand to even more airport locations.

I've rented my car our 2x now within a week. I got 3 requests within the first 24 hours of listing my vehicle.
