Share your way to urban mobility

If you’ve had your fair share of getting stuck in traffic by yourself or prefer driving with someone to make your trip to work seem shorter, you may enjoy having a ‘travelling buddy’!

With the increase of mobility solutions that are greener and cheaper in our urban areas, sharing a ride has fast become the “in thing” in South Africa.

Having two or more people sharing a ride certainly comes with benefits – here are a few:

  • Possible less stress
    Sharing a ride with others could help in the reduction of ‘travel stress’ as you share the costs and have company for those traffic jams. Depending on the arrangement, you may be able to sneak in some reading time, catch your breath and relax after a long day or even catch up on some quick tasks while commuting.
  • Save money
    How about you share your travel costs with friends? Sharing a ride with friends or family allows you to save as you get to share the petrol bill with your riding mates.
  • Reduces traffic
    More people sharing a ride helps in reducing traffic congestion on the roads. This means fewer cars on the road and as a result, less traffic jam stress.
  • Time to mingle and possibly make new friends
    Sharing a ride gives you the perfect opportunity to connect with whoever you’re driving with. As the days get busier for most, using this time to catch up with loved ones could work in your favour and keep you connected with the world around you.

Whether you’re sharing a ride with two or three other people, ensure that you have comprehensive car insurance. If not, you can get an online quote  and hit the road knowing that you are covered should something go wrong.

Make carpooling even more fun with the ultimate playlist to listen to when you’re on the road.

Keep in mind that sharing a ride or forming a lift club with the sole intention of making a profit may work against you at claims stage as it will be seen as business use – keep your lift club simple with shared benefits and not financial gain, while also ensuring that you are correctly covered.
