Get Free Airport Parking and Make Money with FlightCar

Have you heard of FlightCar? FlightCar is a way to park your car at the airport for free and make some side money, too. How? Well, they rent out your car to travelers. I just tried parking it for the first time and got my first check in the mail, on top getting 4 days of free airport parking!

Here's how it works:

For the Parker
When your car is rented via FlightCar, it is fully insured. You get $0.10 per mile driven for the first 100 miles per day and $0.40/mile over that. If the renter doesn't fill up the gas tank, you'll also get reimbursed for that. You just need to list your car ahead of time and tell them when you will drop it off and pick it up. You'll need to have the registration in the car.

TIP: Come a bit early. When you drop it off, they're supposed to have a black car to take you to the airport, but when I was there the car was busy picking someone up at the airport. Later, they told me they were supposed to call an Uber if this happens. As an apology they sent me a $20 check. I didn't miss my flight so it's all good, but just keep in mind you might want to get there earlier. You're getting free parking and potentially making money, so I think it's worth it.

For the Renter
So I've looked at the rental prices for FlightCar as well. Depending on the timing, yes, sometimes you can get really cheap rentals at these major airports. But if you're coming last minute and the rental prices have gone way up, then FlightCar has always been the cheapest option.
Try it with $20 off your first rental (or get it as a payout bonus when you list your car!) using this link: https://flightcar.com/r/OIOH

Flightcar is currently available in Boston Logan, SFO, LAX, and Seattle Tacoma Airport.
