Getting used to sharing your car with other people

What it's like to share your car with others

Being a part of the sharing economy has many benefits, including being a part of the community, making money to offset the cost of having a car, helping the environment, and having something working for you - while you’re not!

However, getting used to being the proud new owner of a share car does mean that you should expect a few changes, like:

  • The car might not be where you left it. Don't worry, though, our GPS mapping will show you exactly where it is
  • The radio station might be different, or the seat in a different spot. It’s a bit of a change at first, but you will quickly get used to adjusting the car when you jump in to exactly how you like it
  • There might be a few minor scratches. We like to think of it in a similar way to when we lend our car to our friends. If you wouldn't claim for damage if you or a friend had caused it, then you won’t be able to claim it under our insurance policy. The distance income you get for each kilometre a borrower drives will add up and cover the cost of any minor wear or tear.
