Peer-to-peer car rental
« on: May 02, 2013, 08:59:24 am »
This is in essence quite a simple idea based on companies like https://relayrides.com/.
Car owners should be able to rent out their own cars to other people. Other people will then be able to rent that car for a fee.

Commands involved:
/setrentable car
/setcarrent (amount)

Between 3 and 10 percent of the fee will go to one of the car rental bizzes (to be created). These businesses can set their own fees between the defined limits. Having multiple businesses prevents a monopoly situation.

3 and 5 per cent

10 is too high I feel, and the owners should get something too

So for instance

I rent out a Sultan, you get it but I set my rent fee to $100

Rental biz would get between $3 and $5, I'd get another $5 out of the $100

The remaining money would disappear

I personally would neither rent out nor rent a vehicle?

Do not contact me directly via forum PM. Post on one of the many forum boards instead, they're more friendly.

I would. I would earn money while I'm not using my car anyways. Also, since owned cars spawn all over LS, it would be possible to find a rental vehicle when you get stuck somewhere.
