Introducing Fleet – Wicklow’s Brand New Car Rental Start-Up


Fleet is the new Wicklow based, peer to peer car rental app launching on iOS and Android in April 2017 – modelled on the success of AirBnb.

The creators of Fleet were frustrated with long queues and paperwork every time they rented from traditional rental companies. They wanted to create a cheaper car rental offering; simple, fast and available with a few simple taps of an app.

By renting a car through Fleet, you can pick from a selection of other Fleet users vehicles in your area. You save money, they make money and the entire process is simple and hassle free.

Fleet understands the costs associated with owning and running a car, so why not make your car work for you. With Fleet you can earn extra money renting out your car when it’s not in use to help pay the bills, or maybe pay for that much needed holiday.

With Fleet, you are in control of your rentals when, and where you want them, and with all cars provided with fully comprehensive insurance while rented through the Fleet App, you can be sure you are in safe hands.



“Many of you will be familiar with Air bnb and how that works, well here at Fleet, we are providing a similar service but for cars, vans and motorbikes it’s that simple!

So if you have a second car that sits at home most of the time, or don’t use your car to commute to work, why not rent it out through Fleet and earn some extra cash? The money you earn could go towards paying for your car insurance, your weekly train or bus ticket, childcare, college tuition or even save up for that well deserved summer holiday. We like to think of it as your car giving a little something back to you, as we all know the cost of running and owning a car can be quite high especially if you are not using it every day.

Likewise, if you are looking to rent a car for a weekend trip, or maybe to get to that important meeting across the country, why not rent a car in your local area from another Fleet member, and you could save money compared to traditional car rental services. Renting a car in rural locations can be very difficult if not impossible! Typical vehicle rental companies tend to congregate around large metropolitan areas and airports. Fleet will enable customers not only in these locations but nationwide to rent a vehicle conveniently whenever they need it!

When you join Fleet, you can create your profile and search for the car you really want to drive. Maybe it’s that dream car for a road trip or holiday, a people carrier because your vehicle is too small to fit extended family over for the weekend, you’re moving house and need a suitably sized van, or something a little bit extra special like a wedding car.  With Fleet, you can find cars close to you, and within your budget, you meet the owner and get to know the person behind the car before you get behind the wheel. You can save cars to your wish list and rent them when you need them.

For car owners, you can list your car for rent on the days that suit you, so you are never without your car when you need it. When you sign up to list your car, we will give you an indication of how much it costs to rent a car, and how much you can earn from renting your car. You don’t have to worry about car insurance, we have that covered and all our rentals come with car insurance and breakdown assistance, so you are never at risk.”  – Fleet founder Maurice Sheehy


Fleet will be available to download for Free on iOS and Android in April.

If you sign up today, you can claim €50 FREE Fleet Credit and get notified when the app goes live.
