Forestcar Car Sharing Service Offers Free Parking at Manchester Airport

by Traveleads | November 26, 2018 | Latest News On The Ground

Car-sharing service provider Forestcar is set to launch operations at Manchester airport on 14 January in partnership with Airport Parking and Hotels (APH). It allows travellers to make money from renting out their vehicle while they are away,

Car owners get free parking and receive 20 per cent of the rental cost if it is used. The price is set by ForestCar depending on the vehicle type.

Vehicles that are rented out through Forestcar are insured and monitored while on the road by pay-as-you-go fintech service Cuvva . They will also receive a free airport transfer and car cleaning before being returned to their owners, according to the company. Cars are fitted with telematics devices in order for Forestcar to keep track of how and where they are being driven and intervene if renters are driving irresponsibly.

It claims renters will be able to hire cars for up to 50% less than via a traditional hire firm.

“By making car-sharing safe, we’re allowing airport visitors to turn car parking cost into income, whilst also benefiting the environment,” said ForestCar CEO Charlie Palmer.

“At ForestCar we don’t just want to disrupt the rental industry, we want to use sharing as a force for tackling climate change. We want to create a global community of travellers who share their cars and help restore rainforests.”

Palmer added: The net impact of ForestCar, will be fewer cars in society, more trees in tropical rainforests, and less CO2 choking up the atmosphere.”
