Who are we?
Transfercar’s vision is to transform the rental car industry. Created in New Zealand in 2008, we now have a very solid presence in Australia, have entered the US market in 2014 and the Canadian market in 2016. We bring together our love of travel and expertise in technology to create products that inspire people to hit the road. We make it easier for travellers to see the world on a shoestring while helping rental car companies move their stranded fleet. Here’s a bit about our team...
