In a significant milestone, airport car-sharing service FlightCar partnered with travel agency distributor Travelport, a sign that portions of the travel industry establishment have embraced the sharing economy.

Renters, in turn, get access to car rentals starting at around $10 per day, well below car rental rates from companies such as Enterprise, Hertz, Avis, and Budget.
