STERLING, Va. (WJLA) - A new car service will allow travelers flying out of Dulles International Airport to park their car for free—so long as they agree to rent their car to other drivers.

FlightCar, which is based in San Francisco, will offer travelers a free Town Car ride to the airport and a free car wash if they give the company permission to rent the car out while they’re away.

The service launched Wednesday at Dulles and two other airports.

The company is not yet an official rental car operator through the airport, but FlightCar is currently in talks with Dulles to acquire the correct permits to become one.

Additional details about FlightCar and how the service works is available on its website.
