“Recently, a number of airport authorities and city and county government agencies have taken formal and informal steps – from litigation to cease-and-desist orders – to require P2P car rental companies to comply with state and local tax laws and policies for companies that rent cars at airports.”
American Car Rental Association (ACRA) Peer-to-Peer Car Rental Timeline – January 2020
"What They Are Saying"
- "Thankfully, there’s a straightforward policy solution to the problem of uneven or ambiguous airport access rules and fees: Airport authorities can work to balance the competing interests of new and traditional companies by adopting an open posture toward new types of rental firms and ensuring that the fees and rules for each firm seeking to access airport property are consistent and equitable."
R Street Institute: “Better Managed Airport Car Rental Access Could Ease Holiday Travel”
- “The goal should be to adopt an open posture for new market entrants, while at the same time requiring that all transportation companies who seek to access airport property and serve travelers are subject to the same transparent rules and fees.”
R Street Institute: “R Sheet on Airport Rental Car Access”
- “….App-based car rental companies such as Turo insist on operating on airport premises without paying concession fees, even though their businesses directly contribute to airport congestion and resulting expenses."
Taxpayers Protection Alliance
- “They advertise SFO service and then turn around and say they don’t operate at the airport. Turo’s goal in these tactics is simply to avoid their share of the fees their competitors pay."
City of San Francisco
- “Recently, a number of airport authorities and city and county government agencies have taken formal and informal steps – from litigation to cease-and-desist orders — to require P2P car rental companies to comply with state and local tax laws and policies for companies that rent cars at airports.”
American Car Rental Association (ACRA) Peer-to-Peer Car Rental Timeline
- “Since Turo is sidestepping regulations that impact all other airport rental car companies, the city of San Francisco has filed a lawsuit to make it pay airport fees that help pay for critical infrastructure and to comply with prohibitions against curbside rental car drop offs that worsen congestion.”
California Business Roundtable
- “You do not get to flaunt the rules simply because you do not think that they should apply to you.”
Greater Orlando Aviation Authority
- “It is a rental car business and it is something that is being operated on the corporate level for profit. It’s not just this benign sharing of a single vehicle.”
