The service is initially available for select customers in the Bay Area and Los Angeles. Users tap the key icon on their app to start the process.

The rental option includes unlimited miles, and Lyft said it will handle refueling at market price.

"Our vehicles come equipped with Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and phone chargers," the post said. "Choose free add-ons like ski racks, car seats, and tire chains. And, we're adding hybrid vehicles to the mix soon."

I just placed a reservation in LA for Lyft car rental (they have their own car rental in LA). Curious, do they have brand new cars? Anybody used them? I got a $230 quote for 5 days. It's a crazy good deal....

Just made a reservation also in LA.
They have a $30 off first rental promotion that shows up in the app.
$72 total for 3 days for an SUV.
Lyft will also reimburse up to $10 each way to and from the car rental place.

Always use an Amex, you'll thank me one day.

I emailed them today if they have new cars, so they said sure, all our cars are in great condition, and not older than 2018. ,נישטא ווער זאל לאכן.

I also have a rental at the Hilton LAX HLE which has a 5 day luxury SUV for under $400. I have the Lyft just in case.

the t&c state that you'll be charged a cancelation fee of $50 if you cancel within 24 hours of pickup time.
