Why car-sharing? Discover the Benefits!
Save on Costs
Opting for shared cars can lead to financial savings. Why invest in a car that is not used very often while you keep paying for monthly expenses such as insurance and taxes? When you choose car sharing you only pay for the times you actually drive the car.
Convenience and Flexibility
Enjoy the convenience and flexibility of shared cars. Reserve a vehicle when you need it, without the responsibilities of ownership. Choose from various shared cars tailored to your needs.
A shared car is often more fuel-efficient than other cars. Many shared cars are electric, which means less CO2 emissions and a positive contribution to the climate. This also helps to improve air quality, particularly in densely populated urban areas.
Fewer Parking Issues
Car sharing alleviates parking congestion, particularly in densely populated urban areas. When more people share cars there is less need for parking spots. When the need for parking spots decreases this space can then be used differently. For example, by planting more trees and allowing for more green spaces and other ways of using public space in cities.
Car sharing is smart, affordable and sustainable. Experience the benefits of shared cars and step into a new way of traveling and living today.
Explore the Various Forms of Car Sharing
There are different forms of car sharing:
Cars are placed at fixed locations (stations) where users can pick up and return the car 24/7. These stations can be either public parking spaces or designated car-sharing locations. Examples of this are Greenwheels and MyWheels.
Free-floating car sharing
These cars don’t have a fixed pick-up or drop-off points. You can park the car at any street parking spot within the operating zone of the provider at the end of the ride. An example of this is SHARE NOW.
Community based car sharing (most often with neighbours):
Peer-to-peer car sharing
This is a form of car sharing where private owners make their own cars available for others to use. Users can find and rent a car from individuals in their area through platforms like SnappCar.
In this case, there is a fixed group of users who share one or more shared cars with each other in a closed pool. Due to the fixed group of users, who often live close to each other in the same street or neighborhood, there is more social control over the use and management of the car. In this form, you can make your own arrangements about the use and management of the shared car. The car sometimes has a fixed parking spot on the street where it must be returned. Examples of this are OnzeAuto and DEEL.
