What can you use the app for?

Fun2Rent is a way that people can rent recreational and powersport rentals at a fraction of the normal cost by renting the vessels directly from the owners. Fun2Rent is also a way that owners of such vehicles can make a bit of spare money on the side as well. The app facilitates the transaction between both parties and it also insures both the owners and renters. Through the site, Fun2Rent claims that renters can save up to 70% by renting directly from owners. The app lists some of the vessels that are available for rent on their homepage and they also make it so users can search for particular items in a specific location as well. Owners who develop a solid track record can become designated as a star member and attract more renters. Owners can upload photos of their vessel and set a price for it to be rented. Fun2Rent is designed to be a win-win for both owners and renters.
