THE ECONOMICS OF CAR SHARING – Part I

A CARSHARE car is faster, easier and more flexible than a rental car because:

  • CARSHARE is self-service 24/7 – no annoying queues or paperwork
  • CARSHARE cars are parked near you, rather than big depots that are hard to get to
  • CARSHARE prices are easy to understand and we don’t have any hidden charges (ie insurance, registration, stamp duty, petrol)
  • CARSHARE billing system automatically works out if your trip would be cheaper on the hourly rate or the daily rate, saving you money off a daily rental if you don’t need it.
