Booking.com is offering a $150 payment to rent a car, and for a couple of weeks, that’s a lot of money.
The app is the brainchild of Ben Kallo, an engineer at the tech company.
Booking is a kind of “rent-a-car” app, with the user renting a car and getting a credit card or other payment from the app.
Users can choose to rent from multiple car companies and get payments from them.
“You don’t have to pay your credit card every month,” Kallo told the WSJ.
“We think of it as a kind, free service.”
The app has been available in the US since March and in Germany since August.
It also has a European release planned for the end of September.
You can rent a Tesla, a Mercedes-Benz, a Range Rover, a Volkswagen Passat, a Toyota Prius, a BMW, a Jeep, a Chevy, a Ford, a Honda, an Audi, an Audis, a Nissan, a Scion, a Lexus, an Escalade, a Cadillac, a Porsche, a Land Rover, or a BMW.
Kallo is working with the US government to expand it to more countries, he said.
The company was founded in 2008, and it has since raised $2.5 billion.
It’s unclear how many people are using the app, but Kallo said it’s growing fast.
“I think the demand is really high right now,” he said in an interview.
“People are looking for alternatives to paying for gas, or getting a car insurance policy.”
Kallo did not say how many users the company had, or what the average rental cost was.
“The app is growing,” he told the newspaper.
“Our revenue is growing at a very fast rate.”
In August, Booking added an option for customers to pay with a credit or debit card.
That was to allow them to pay a little less per month than usual, and keep the card for a month or two at a time.
In an interview with TechCrunch, Kallo noted that “people don’t know about this app yet.”
Kalli also said the company will expand its US service, which currently only lets people rent a rental car for three days at a given time.
It said it will expand to more US cities in the coming weeks.
Bookings is also offering a rental credit or prepaid card.
“For a couple weeks, if you want to get the car for $150, you can do that,” Kalo said.
Kalo did not reveal how much money he paid for the car, or when the car would be available for rent.
“But the app is a lot more expensive than you can get with credit cards,” he added.
“It costs $150 for a two-day rental, and $150 a day.”
