G.I. Vehicle Exchange
Facebook: G.I. Vehicle Exchange
G.I. Vehicle Exchange mobilizes parked cars and pays deployed military every month. Vehicles are rented through the Turo, an international car sharing marketplace. G.I. handles all of the communication and logistics, renting only to approved drivers within the Turo community. Between each rental, the vehicle is cleaned—inside and out and thoroughly inspected. The G.I. system tracks and schedules each vehicle for maintenance and repairs to ensure the vehicle is kept in excellent condition. Every time the vehicle is rented, it’s covered by $1 million in liability insurance and is also protected against physical damage. All funds are directly deposited into the Service Member’s account.
Eligibility: Service Members whose vehicle is a 2010 or newer model with less than 100K miles.
