What is car sharing?

Car sharing enables car owners to rent out their vehicles to nearby renters in exchange for money. 

By renting out your car, you can help members of your community get to where they need to be and reduce emissions by decreasing the need for new cars. With driver telematics to support safer driving and contactless car collection, car sharing has never been easier.

Insurance and roadside breakdown cover included.

How does it work?

Sharing your car on Karshare is a great way to earn extra income whenever your vehicle is not in use. Our technology allows renters to book and access your car without you having to lift a finger.

When your car has been onboarded to our platform, you will be asked to select the dates and times you want to make it available for each month. This means that all vehicles are instantly bookable and renters can see which cars are available in real time.

If a renter in your area selects your car, you will be notified via email and the Karshare App with all the details, including your earnings.

Before your first rental, the Karshare team will provide you with a sanitisation kit to help manage the cleanliness of the car before rental. Renters will use the same kit to clean again at the end of each rental.

We ask that both owners and renters please follow our Covid-19 cleaning instructions so everyone can enjoy a clean car experience. 

If you would like more information, or to speak to us please email help@karshare.com, call us on 0208 051 4920 or request a call back.

When you enter the number of days your car is available for, we will calculate your potential earnings.

Your earnings

Car owners earn up to £550 a month through rentals, based on 18 days a month. Owners retain 70% of the rental fee and will be paid for any missing fuel or excess mileage. On top of the rental fee (car price), renters pay a daily insurance fee, which is transferred directly to the insurer.

How does insurance work?

Our insurance partner, QBE, provides fully comprehensive insurance during the full rental period (pick up to drop off) with a replacement value of up to £50,000.

If a renter has an accident while driving your car, you will be fully covered. Karshare will cover the cost for all repairs. If your car needs to be taken away to be repaired, we will provide you with a courtesy car so you are not left without a vehicle.

Keyless tech

In order to complete the process and share your car with the Karshare community, we will need to fit our KarshareGo technology.

We do not charge an upfront fee for the installation but take a 20% cut of your initial rental earnings until the balance has been paid. The total cost of the keyless technology is £195.

“I know my car is safe, insurance is in place, there is tracking so I can locate my car if needed; I have complete peace of mind. I made £200 per month renting out my Audi. To think of my car parked outside doing nothing seems ridiculous to me now!”

Julian Burr

“Karshare is a great opportunity to make some income from my van, instead of it sitting idle. I earn £370 a month by renting out my Vauxhall Vivaro. The checks around the scheme are robust and the drivers are all thoroughly vetted before they’re allowed to book a vehicle.”
