Service with Minor Environmental Footprint
SnappCar is well on its way to become the leading peer-to-peer carsharing community in Europe. Within its community thousands of car owners share their personal cars with tens of thousands of neighbors and friends, all of those looking for a more social, durable and cheaper alternative. SnappCar aims to remove 5 out of 10 cars from our streets in the markets that we are active in. Did you know that the average car stands still for 23 hours each and every day? And there are 250 million cars in Europe alone. Just imagine all the space taken up by these idle chunks of metal. Insane, isnÕt it? SnappCar is a fully reliable and user-friendly marketplace, riding the wave of Collaborative Consumption. SnappCar provides an all-risk insurance, handles the payment and resolves any issue that may arise during the rental period to make the user experience as smooth as possible. As a result everybody benefits. Less cars are needed which frees up precious space in cities and reduces CO2 emissions. Car owners save on their monthly cost, while renters save money by avoiding more expensive alternatives. Finally, it also increases the social cohesion in neighborhoods as people get to know their neighbors.
