In today's fast-paced world, car-sharing services have become a convenient and cost-effective way to get around town. Whether you need a car for a quick errand or a day-long adventure, car-sharing companies have made it easier than ever to grab a car whenever you need it. However, taking frequent rides can quickly add up. Luckily, we've got some tricks up our sleeve to help you save and make the most of your car-sharing experience while keeping your wallet happy!
One of the easiest ways to unlock exclusive deals and discounts with car-sharing services is by subscribing to their newsletters. When you sign up, you'll receive regular updates on promotions, special offers, and new features. Limited-time codes and promotions are often sent out via email, giving you access to reduced rates and other perks. So, don't miss out – stay connected and stay informed.
Car-sharing services often offer incentives for responsible car use. With SHARE NOW, you can earn a 5,00 € driving credit by refuelling or charging the car (if it has less than 40% fuel or a battery level below 35%) after your ride. This doesn't just save you money on your current ride but also sets you up for future savings. Plus, it's a small gesture that is considerate for the next driver who rents the car! Good deed = done!
Planning a day trip or need a car for an extended period? Look out for day rates and packages offered, as these bundles often provide savings compared to the hourly rate. The savings get even bigger if you use the car for several hours or even a full day. You get to explore at your own pace, and your wallet stays padded. It's a win-win situation!

One of the easiest ways to save (and stay up to date) is to follow your favorite company's social media channels and download their mobile apps. Flash deals, contests, and time-limited promotions are often only shared on social network accounts. You never know when a last-minute discount or giveaway might pop up, making your next ride even more affordable.
Spread the word and watch the credit roll in! Referral programs are common in many (car-sharing) services, allowing both you and your friends to enjoy discounts or driving credits by inviting them to join. It's an easy and convenient way to introduce your friends to the benefits of car-sharing while also benefiting from the savings. And with plenty of driving credit saved up... what better way to celebrate friendship than taking a road trip together?
If you regularly take short rides it's worth considering signing up for SHARE NOW Pass or a similar subscription program offered by your service of choice. These passes typically provide reduced rates for shorter rides, making them incredibly cost-effective for daily commuting, errands, or quick getaways. You'll save more in the long run by locking in lower per-minute rates, just by making the small investment into the pass.
Car-sharing can be a budget-friendly way to get around, and with these easy money-saving strategies, you can make it even more economical. Sign up for newsletters, fuel or charge responsibly, explore day rates and packages, consider subscription passes, watch for social media deals, and take advantage of referral programs. By doing so, you'll enjoy the convenience of car-sharing while keeping more money in your pocket for other adventures.
