Karshare at Christmas

At Karshare, we pride ourselves on operating 24/7, 365 days a year, so our customers can have access to nearby vehicles whenever they need one. This means that we will be operating as usual during the Christmas period – ensuring that your travel plans are taken care of and that the Karshare team is on standby at all times, ready to help.

Traditional car rental companies operate on a standard 8am – 5pm schedule and are often closed on Sundays. Car sharing can therefore be especially beneficial during the holiday season as our vehicles are available to rent at any point in the day, every day of the week.

Our unique keyless technology means that anyone can rent a car instantly and drive away within minutes. All of the vehicles on our platform are compatible with the Karshare App, which uses facial recognition to unlock the car doors and renders the entire rental experience contactless. Owner and renter never have to go through the hassle of arranging a key drop-off as the smartphone app becomes a digital key.

The car owners on our platform determine when they want to share their car, so renters will only be shown those vehicles that are actually available to book right then and there. This means that there is no request delay or waiting period to confirm the booking – all parties involved know instantly if and when a car has been rented.

This year, plans are likely to be uncertain as we navigate the first Christmas during Covid and last minute decisions can put a strain on travel plans when people are put under pressure to book ahead. At Karshare, all of our bookings are instant, allowing renters to select a car just minutes before their planned departure.

Karshare also provides a generous cancellation policy, as no charge applies if the rental is cancelled more than 48 hours before the booking starts. Our renter grace period also allows bookings to be cancelled without charge if they are cancelled within 24 hours of the booking being made, as long as the rental start date is more than 48 hours. Any booking which starts in less than 48 hours has a grace period of 6 hours when it can be cancelled without charge. These policies can help mitigate the uncertainties around travel restrictions during the festive season this year and allow renters to book with peace of mind at all times.

We have a number of vehicles available to take you to where you need to be this Christmas, from 7 seaters to BMWs to electric cars, starting at just £33.50 a day during the holiday season.
