In 2014, I was in my 9th year of leading a well-established, 52 year-old and highly successful, private equity backed travel management company. Quite a mouthful.

In fact, 70% of people who live in urban areas in towns and cities across England don’t have suitable access to quality green space.

Karshare is the only peer-to-peer car sharing platform whose fleet is 100% owned by individuals in the community.

Interested in the steps we take to make sure the cars are treated with respect and driven responsibly? From driver telematics to rewarding great driving, we’re going to run you through the features we have in place to help build a trusted community of renters.
