Transfercar is an online relocation service that offers free rental cars to travellers in Australia and New Zealand. In return the travellers are helping the rental car industry to relocate their cars in a cheaper way than any current relocation alternative.
The idea behind Transfercar originates from the rental car industry where the rental car companies’ fleets often move in one direction according to the flow of tourists. This causes logistic problems for the car rental companies as their cars tend to pile up where they are not needed.
Transfercar provides an online solution that facilitates contact between vehicle owners that need to relocate their vehicles and potential relocation drivers. The owners can submit relocations to the Transfercar database through the website. The driver can then view the vehicles online and request to drive a relocation car of their choice.
The solution offers real benefits to both vehicle owners and those looking for an alternative and cheaper mode of transport.
