BookAclassic (www.bookaclassic.com) is Europe’s leading online booking portal for rental of classic and unique dream cars, buses, motorcycles and aircraft. Think Airbnb for classic cars and you have an understanding of the business model. The company connects classic car owners wishing to hire their vehicles out, with consumers looking for a classic car experience. The company’s objective is to make BookAclassic, the world’s preferred booking site for classic and unique vehicles.
It is essentially the same concept as the hugely popular Airbnb platform, which has highlighted the massive potential in the global “share economy” and transformed the accommodation market. Just as Airbnb runs on a marketplace platform model where it connects hosts and travelers and enables transactions without owning any rooms itself, BookAclassic connects classic car owners with people seeking classic cars, without owning the cars. Such platforms disrupt traditional industries by creating new sources of supply and relying on curation for developing quality.
