CarHopper, a Miami, Fl.-based online booking platform for luxury and exotic car rentals, raised $1.5m in seed funding.
Backers were not disclosed.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its launch into four new markets, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami and San Francisco.
Led by Bora Hamamcioglu, founder and CEO, CarHopper is an online booking platform for luxury and exotic car rentals now available on the web, iOS and Android apps. Search by date, destination or car, the app instantly filters for luxury cars available in selected destination and compiles results into a curated list. Users can then select the car, confirm the reservation, and submit a final request to rent a vehicle in 60 seconds.
CarHopper vets renters before fleet owners receive the reservation request by conducting a driving record check.
