About SnappCar

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 decrease the total number of cars in Europe by 1% in 2018.

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, isn’t 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.

Join the revolution!

We are proud to make carsharing accessible, easy and reliable for millions of Europeans. And by doing so, make a real impact on a financial, economical, ecological and social level. We are making a difference.

The Change We Seek®

SnappCar changes mindsets. From (car) ownership towards access. Its purpose is to initiate collaborative consumption. By 2025 peer-to-peer carsharing will be the norm. Emotions around cars will have disappeared completely.

What makes us a better company?
