Hubber Car Rental
Next Time You Travel, Rent Your Car With Hubber
UPDATE: Hubber has closed down operations.
Airports are busy places. Travelers are arriving and departing at all hours of the day. Ground transportation can be a logistical and expensive nightmare. That’s where Hubber comes in.
Hubber brings affordable car rental services to travelers by providing peer-to-peer carsharing services based out of airports. By utilizing the shared economy business model, Hubber helps to connect outgoing travelers with incoming travelers to maximize the use of vehicles and to reduce the costs of airport parking. It’s basically an affordable, savvy alternative to traditional rental car services.
Paul Davis founded Hubber in 2012. Based in Los Angeles, California, the airport carsharing service was first launched at LAX airport in 2013. So far, Hubber has done well and the company expects to operate in all major airports across the United States in the near future.
Hubber ensures that everyone benefits by connecting price-savvy car owners with keen, cost-conscious car renters. Car owners save money on expensive airport parking costs by renting their car while they travel. Plus, owners collect the rental revenue and get a washed and fueled vehicle upon their return.
Renters save money on normal car rentals and ground transportation. They also get the use of fully-featured vehicles that might have luxuries like surf, ski, or bike racks, navigation features, storage boxes, or even studded snow tires – all things that a traveler may find useful.
Car owners sign up for Hubber online. They list their vehicle and the dates they are out of town. When they head to the airport, instead of parking in the pay parking lot, they leave their vehicle and their keys at the Hubber airport facility. Hubber provides them with a free shuttle to the airport and off they go. When they return to their home airport, Hubber picks them up and returns their fully fueled and washed car. Then the car owner gets paid for any time the vehicle was rented.
Car renters also join the Hubber community online. They enter their travel dates and select an available vehicle. When they arrive at their destination, they pick up the Hubber vehicle and enjoy their vacation. At the end of their trip, they drop off the rented car and go home. It’s simple and works amazingly well.
Hubber provides the infrastructure and technology to connect car owners and renters at airports across the country. They manage all financial transactions and ensure that the vehicle returns in tip-top shape. They also carry a $1,000,000 liability insurance policy to cover any claims and/or physical damage to the vehicle while it is rented. In exchange for their services, Hubber takes a commission from each and every rental.
If you’re a traveler, you need to rent your car via Hubber. You’d be silly not to. Hubber allows any cars that are less than 5 years old, have less than 50,000 miles, are registered with the state, are in good condition, and have no tickets. If your car meets those basic requirements, sign up today and start making money.
When you drop your car off with Hubber, you will never have to pay airport parking, which can be upwards of $10 per day at some airports. Instead, you will get paid for the rental of your car. You actually save money and make money at the same time. Commissions are based on year, make, and model of your vehicle plus the number of days your car is rented.
Rental rates can range from $45 to $75 per day. Owners can make $10 to $30 per day and are paid at the end of each rental period. Owners are also compensated at $0.30 per mile when the vehicle travels over 100 miles per day, which compensates for any additional wear and tear. Plus, the car is fully fueled and cleaned when you arrive home. That’s pretty decent income for not doing anything.
Hubber provides a simple, sustainable, and smart business model where every traveler wins. Airport car rentals have never been this easy. Take advantage of Hubber today.
