Cars available for key workers

Are you a health worker, care worker, volunteer or charity worker? Do you need a vehicle to help people in your community? We have a car for you!

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought communities together in an extraordinary way and we at Karshare are proud to help by arranging vehicles for those who have been going above and beyond to support the vulnerable during this crisis. 

Inspired by our Karshare Free scheme during the first lockdown in March, we have made a fleet of cars available in Bristol to continue supporting essential services in our communities, from homeless charities to caring services. 

If you are in need of a car to support your work in Bristol, please get in touch with us.

Frequently asked questions

When your vehicle is rented, it is fully insured under Karshare’s policy. Your own insurance is not affected. For more information on our policy, please click here.

Should your vehicle be damaged during a rental Karshare will investigate and take care of organising any repair work required.

We ask that owners listing a vehicle maintain a comprehensive insurance policy on their vehicle at all times.

If you receive notice of a fine e.g. a speeding offence or parking ticket and it occurred during a Karshare booking, please get in touch and we will ensure it is taken care of. 

Karshare is committed to maintaining cleaning and hygiene standards for the Karshare community.

The very best sharing experience relies on vehicles being cleaned, sanitised and cleared of personal items by owners, and returned by renters in the same condition as collected.

Karshare will fully insure you when driving a donated vehicle. We subsidise the cost of insurance for all our drivers - the cost to you will be £5 per day.
