Rentiva is a person-to-person car rental and sharing platform allowing real people to list their own cars. To rent a car, users search for available vehicles in their region regarding their designated needs. In the meantime, the car’s current owner reviews the customer’s request and then either approves or rejects the demanded rental request.
Founded in Istanbul in 2017, Rentiva has brought together more than 125,000 car owners and renters who want to rent affordable and reliable cars.
Rentiva CEO Eren ALKIŞ strongly believes their reputation amongst other car rental companies comes from their low cost and reliable infrastructure. Due to the pandemic, a sudden drop in the car rental sector has almost vanished half of the car rental companies. This unfortunate outcome has proven that most of the business models of these car rental companies were intangible and unsustainable. Despite many car rental companies lost their most valuable customers and revenues during the Covid-19, Rentiva was able to earn more than 1 million Turkish lira.
As per CEO Eren Alkis, their goal is to offer people the opportunity to rent a car in their own neighborhood in less than 5 minutes.
The sustainable and low-cost car rental infrastructure offered by Rentiva is anticipated to expand over time and successfully integrate into global markets as well.
