Why car share?

Save money and help the environment by car sharing. It’s as simple as giving a family member, friend or work colleague a lift.

Most people commute to work by car. The average worker in the UK commutes over 4,000 miles a year, which equates to an average annual fuel cost of over £700.

There are no limits on the types of journey you can share. Car sharers make all sorts of trips, getting to work, doing the weekly shop, going to the match at the weekend, travelling to a concert or show, getting to and from university or visiting friends, the list is virtually endless.

Finding someone to share your journey with is really easy, ask around your office or workplace, you might be surprised by the number of people who make the same journey as you each day and who could potentially share your trip. If you don’t have any luck here you could ask family members, friends or people who live down your street. You can save money on trips to the shop if you share them with family members or friends, giving you a bit extra to treat yourself!
