DriveShare, Hagerty’s Airbnb-style rent-a-classic car program, has been expanded to allow access by Canadian and other international drivers at least 25 years old and visiting the United States, the company has announced.

DriveShare is “a peer-to-peer car-sharing service” enabling collector car owners to rent their vehicles to others.  

“Previously, only U.S. licensed drivers could rent from DriveShare,” Hagerty’s announcement said. “Canadian and other international drivers will now automatically receive liability and physical-damage coverage as a part of the rental fees.

“This is a big deal for both car fans north of the border visiting the States and for U.S. car owners who rent out vehicles on the app,” said Steve Haas, senior manager of DriveShare. “We’ve had a lot of inquiries from Canadian travelers who were disappointed that they couldn’t rent on the platform yet. We’re thrilled to finally be able to tell them, ‘Now you can!’”

DriveShare offers an inventory of more than 2,000 vehicles, from classic cars and trucks to modern muscle cars. For details, visit the DriveShare website.
