A group of Philadelphia and South Jersey car dealerships are bringing a new concept in automobile usage to the region.
Four Holman dealerships from Willow Grove to Turnersville are planning to offer weekly rental through a subscription program called Flexdrive. Bill Cariss of Holman said it uses a phone app to virtually eliminate the paperwork that people need to fill out.
“When you download the app all you need to do is take a picture of your driver’s license and enter a valid credit card. As long as you have a valid drivers license and a credit card that’s been paid you can then search for cars in your area.”
Cariss said the service offers an affordable weekly alternative to ownership.
“Just under $200 for a late model, one or two year old pre-owned vehicle.”
The service includes the cost of maintenance and insurance.
Flexdrive requires that all subscribers be 25-years of age or older
