Kyte, an on-demand car rental service, launched in Seattle on Friday.
The service delivers rental cars directly to drivers. Customers can purchase the car through an app or the company’s website by choosing a specific delivery time and location. They can rent by day, week or month, eliminating the wait times and paperwork of traditional rental car services.
San Francisco-based Kyte will be available in Seattle and the Ballard, Fremont, Capitol Hill, Madison Park and Columbia City neighborhoods. Seattle marks Kyte’s eighth operating city.
Kyte was co-founded in 2019 by Francesco Wiedemann, who previously worked for ride share company ReachNow. Other founders are Nikolaus Volk, previously a software engineer at Uber, and Ludwig Schoenack, previously a venture partner at Contrary.
Kyte’s rideshare competitor in Seattle is GIG, a AAA service which allows customers to rent cars by the day, hour or minute — lending itself to one-way rentals. Wiedemann told GeekWire Kyte differentiates itself with longer term rentals.
“We also wanted to give Seattle residents and travelers the freedom and flexibility to explore all of the great destinations the city has to offer — from hiking at Mount Rainier or Olympic National Park to seeing the Snoqualmie Falls on a whim.” Wiedemann said.
Wiedemann said customers can choose between vehicles, including economy, sedan and SUV. Customers pay a daily rate, and an additional delivery and return fee which totals $19.
This summer has seen an increase in business for Kyte, Wiedemann said, and is at 40% month-over-month growth rate.

When you rent a car, it can be hard to know if you need rental insurance coverage. For some drivers it’s a necessity, and for others it’s a redundant expense.
first things first: does my car insurance cover rental cars?
The limits and deductibles on your regular car insurance policy typically still apply to your rental car so long as you drive it for personal use. If it’s a commercial or business rental, your personal car insurance coverage may not apply.
However, be sure to check your car insurance policy or call your insurance company to find out which coverages extend to your rental car.
If you’ll be paying for the rental with a credit card, check with your credit card company to see what additional rental car coverage is provided. Call the number on the back of the card you use to pay for the rental before buying extra protection.
know your at-the-counter options
There are generally 4 coverage options available when you rent a car.
Loss-damage waiver (aka collision damage waiver)
Typically waives financial responsibility if the rental car’s damaged or stolen; also covers loss-of-use charges while the rental’s in the shop, towing charges, and related fees
Costs roughly $9–$19 a day
This state-required coverage protects you from potential lawsuits
Costs around $7–$14 a day
Personal accident insurance
Covers medical costs after an accident
Costs $1–$5 a day
Personal effects coverage
Insures what you keep in the rental car
Costs $1–4 a day
the tempting add-on
Basic car insurance typically covers you in the event you cause injury or property damage while driving a rental. Likewise, comprehensive and collision coverage guard against damage to the rental car itself. But if you don’t have those 2 optional protections, consider the loss-of-use waiver, which, of the 4 rental car insurance add-ons above, offers the most protection.
Check with your insurer on whether rental car insurance is a good idea before you make a decision, and ask about potential administrative and loss-of-use fees levied by the rental company. Your comprehensive and collision coverage may be all you need.
depending on your policies …
If you have reliable auto insurance, renters/home insurance, and health insurance, you can save a good chunk of change by declining the other 3 coverages. Here’s why:
When you buy auto insurance, you’re required to buy a state-mandated amount of liability coverage (except in New Hampshire, where it’s optional), meaning you likely won’t need to add it at the counter.
If you have health insurance, consider declining personal accident insurance if your health plan covers accident-related injuries. If you have personal injury protection and/or medical payments coverage on your car insurance policy, it would also offer the same protection if an accident occurs.
And finally, if you have renters or homeowners insurance with off-premises coverage, your things are already insured before you stash them in the rental car. So consider declining personal

Vehicles can be tough to find enough space for, especially if you only have a single-car garage and a narrow driveway. For many individuals and families, there simply isn’t enough space around to hold their daily commuter plus a spare car or recreational vehicle. Fortunately for those who need more parking space, many storage facilities offer vehicle storage at affordable rates.
Different Vehicle Storage Options
Vehicle storage is so much more than storing a sedan. Since there are several types of commonly owned vehicles, the self storage industry has adapted to offer storage for all types of vehicles, including recreational vehicles. Here are the different vehicle storage options you can find at many storage facilities.
Car storage – There are a lot of people who use storage as a place to hold a spare car, or even a classic car, that they don’t have the room for in their driveway or garage.
Small Vehicle Storage – Self storage is great for storing ATVs, motorcycles, scooters, and other small vehicles.
Boat Storage – Most boat owners don’t have the room to store their boat at home, and a lot of neighborhoods covenants don’t allow you to do so anyway.
RV Storage – While RVs are known for luxurious camping, they’re also known for being massive. Most homes aren’t equipped with enough space to house a typical RV, so self storage becomes the best way to store an RV.
Types of Vehicle Storage
Not all vehicle storage is created equal, and that’s largely by design. Storage facilities have created several types of vehicle storage so you can find the protection you desire at a price you can afford. Whether you’re looking for the cheapest storage option available, or you need maximum protection for your vehicle, you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
Indoor – Cars, trucks, motorcycles, and even small boats can be stored inside a standard drive-up storage unit. Inside a storage unit, your vehicle will be completely protected from the elements and will enjoy excellent security.
Outdoor – The most common form of vehicle storage is an outdoor parking spot that is reserved for your vehicle. Of course, this offers no protection from the elements, but you still get the security of a fenced-in lot with controlled access.
Covered – Some storage facilities offer covered vehicle storage where cars, boats, and RVs can be parked underneath an awning to offer protection from the sun and rain.
Storage Garage – There are also storage facilities that offer indoor vehicle parking in the form of large garages with individual spots. While these aren’t private like an individual storage unit would be, they still provide full protection from the elements.
Important Amenities for Vehicle Storage
When looking for vehicle storage, there are many things you should consider, including what amenities each storage facility offers. While certain amenities may increase the cost of your rental, they’re well worth the investment since they keep your vehicle safe and easy to access.

Car Share Software
Carsharing is a new model of car rental service, whereby customers rent cars for short periods of time, often by the hour, in order to perform tasks that do not require a lengthy rental. This modal allows individuals to gain the benefit of private cars without the costs and responsibilities of ownership. Instead of a household owning one or more cars, they can have access to a fleet of them on an as-needed basis through carsharing. This new system of car rental generally attracts customers who make only occasional use of a vehicle, as well as others who would like occasional access to a vehicle of a different type than what they use on a daily basis. Carsharing may be thought of as an organized short-term car rental system and for that, Rent Centric offers a comprehensive package to support your Car share project. Rent Centric Carshare includes complete car share rental management software and hardware to implement an end to end solution for your clients.
Rent Centric’s advanced reporting system offers comprehensive tools for monitoring your fleet.

You are also given various controls for the vehicle including the ability to perform a Safe Stop by gradually restricting the vehicle’s gas supply or completely immobilizing the vehicle, preventing it from starting up again once parked. Furthermore, you can set Geofences for the vehicle, securing an area in which it is only allowed to go, or preventing access to restricted areas. If the vehicle crosses these Geofences, depending on your settings, it could automatically go into safe stop mode or the rental rate could change among other things. All
