DriveMyCar to and from the airport

Peer-to-peer car rental service DriveMyCar now operates from Sydney and Brisbane airports.

We've previously covered DriveMyCar, which lets people offer their under-used cars for short to medium term rental to private and business hirers.

In turn, hirers benefit from substantially lower rates than those charged by mainstream car rental companies, according to DriveMyCar.

The usefulness of this service has been increased with the addition of pick up and drop off services at Sydney and Brisbane Airports.

In Sydney, this facility is offered in conjunction with Park & Fly, so customers can be taken to their car on arrival and enjoy the benefit of valet parking on departure.

In Brisbane, DriveMyCar's depot is located approximately eight minutes drive from the terminal (we're not sure how Brisbane taxi drivers feel about such short trips from the airport, but that's their problem).

"DriveMyCar's new airport services have been achieved by forming smart partnerships with service providers located near the airports," said Chris Noon, CEO of DriveMyCar. "This approach is low cost, very scalable and lends itself to the launch of further airport locations."

Unlike the major players, DriveMyCar does not impose a surcharge for airport pick ups or drop offs.

"Traditional car rental companies charge a premium of up to 29 percent for airport pickup, meaning a Toyota Camry rented for 31 days can cost an additional $559," said Noon. "With DriveMyCar, travellers can save up to 54 percent or $872 on a Toyota Camry rented for 31 days."
