I’m always looking for the best ways to maximize my travel budget and cut expenses. Which is why I’m so excited about Avail.
Avail is a peer-to-peer car-sharing service located at 14 major airports across the country. Instead of paying to park my car at the airport, I leave it with Avail who pays me up to $25 per day to rent out my car to other travelers.
Here’s how it works:
I open up the Avail iOS app right on my mobile phone to make a reservation, letting Avail know that I’m going out of town and the dates I’d like them to rent out my car.
Before I head to the airport I clean out any personal items from my car.
On my travel day I pull up to the Avail lot and pass off my keys to one of their super friendly attendants. We exchange some final information about the car and I’m quickly on my way.
While I’m riding the free Avail shuttle to the terminal my car is being cleaned and sanitized to get it ready to be shared. Read more about Avail’s cleaning process.
As I’m having the best time on my vacation I’m not worried about my car at all because I know it’s fully covered by Allstate Insurance and has 24/7 roadside assistance. Not to mention that Avail only rents out my car to drivers who have a valid, unrestricted US driver’s license and a clean driving record.
When I get back from vacation my car is sparkling clean and waiting for me!
And even if my car doesn’t get shared while I’m away, airport parking is still free and I get a complimentary car wash. Did you know that the cost of airport parking can be anywhere from $8 to $20 a day! No thanks, that’s money I’d rather spend on my trip.
If you are looking for a great way to make some passive income and skip the airport parking fees you have to check out Avail! Plus if you’re flying into any of their other 14 locations, you can use my promo code ONEGIRLWANDERING for $50 off your booking.
