Kyte - Car Rentals Delivered to You
« on: May 11, 2022, 09:37:54 PM »
https://drivekyte.com/

Just came across this- I had never heard of them.

Seems like they own a fleet of cars themselves and deliver a car to you. Haven't done much searching to see what their fees are and how their prices compare to others.

Available in:
Boston
Brooklyn
Chicago
Denver
Jersey City
Long Beach
Los Angeles
LAX
Miami
New York City
Philadelphia
Portland
San Fransisco
Seattle
Portland

Also, they have a Tesla Subscription Program in SF and NYC which basically seems like short-term leasing for 3, 6 or 12 months with liability insurance included. Not sure how you'd get collision coverage or what kind of mileage is included.

How's $995/month for a 12-month lease on a Long Range Model 3? What's a regular Tesla lease- $650/month+a few thousand down+insurance?

Prices are the same as most local car rentals in Brooklyn. Where they win is:
1) delivery
2) fleet- I haven't used them too many times but so far I've gotten the top model every time I booked
3) they send around $50 coupon codes every now and then, plus you get a $50 credit every time you refer someone.

Might depend on location but it's generally $30/weekday for a Sedan in Brooklyn, plus delivery. Being that delivery is a one-time fee, the longer your rental the cheaper per day.

Based on my knowledge there are no underage fees. It'll list it before checkout if it does apply.
Minimum age varies by state: https://drivekyte.kustomer.help/en_us/how-old-do-i-need-to-be-to-rent-B1HJ9e3Yu

Liability is not included, there's an extra daily surcharge for that.

I can't see why not. Autoslash says the same.

Looks like all/most of bo/Flatbush is out of the coverage area but CH is in the coverage area?

Also they say they charge "market rate" for gas. Anyone have experience with it?

They have a pickup spot near EWR, but I don't think they service anywhere else in Jersey.

Once you receive the car you can check the app for the price per gallon that you'll pay if you bring it back with less gas than received. From what I've seen it's about .20-.30 above market rate.
