Re: Rideshare for shopping in Germany

Hi DE Shoppers

An alternative, if you dont shop for too much weight, is SBB to Konstanz.

Umgebungskarte: Zürich HB
Zürich HB ab 10:37 10
IR

1.
2.

InterRegio 2115
Richtung: Konstanz Umgebungskarte: Konstanz
Konstanz an 11:54 Which puts you right in the middle of the town, lovely cloths shops, food shops nearby and of course loads of cheap restaurants.
As a bonus, the Zoll is also on the station for tax refunds.

Good shopping.

Do you have a driver's licence?

If yes, try Mobility :

Re: Rideshare for shopping in Germany

ive got a car and go once every 3 weeks.
i usually have space for 1 more in the car.
if anyone needs a lift, feel free to contact me...only thing is that you can't buy more than is the legal amount of food allowed to be brought back in (rather be safe than sorry)

Thanks, interesting idea. I have ''flying blue silver membership", gives 15% discount on europcar. Howere it's still expensive as !@#$ ... 160EUR/day for mid-class with full insurance (which in CH is recommended due to cost of repairs)

How much is fuel from your place to Germany? Perhaps an offer to pay 2/3 of it for a round-trip to Germany could get you some offers.

Thanks, where do you usually travel? Which DE city? I know about the constraints - meat and alcohol ... but this can also be shared among the passengers ... e.g. somebody wants to buy more, the other one not ... might work?

They make money selling their stuff/service so they're guaranteed to find (make up) some reason as a selling proposition.

Do note:
The sum of all premiums paid is higher than the total cost of the repairs.

Re: Rideshare for shopping in Germany

You could also announce your potential trip on http://www.karzoo.ch/en

It is a car pooling service, where you can look for rides or advertise rides.

Very good for the environment, just to say

Thanks! I already know blablacar who acquired carpooling.com and then there are many others ... This is however carpool only, usually 1 off, sometimes same group of people sharing ride to work, without much flexibility for shopping ...

I wouldn't bother with mobility for longer trips like that. The cost is too high.

It is however perfect for shorter trips about the place.

AFAIK, mobility charges for both time and distance.
Perfect for weekend-trips. Not.
To me, it looks like it's basically for transporting your car-load of groceries from the local Migros home, where the mobility station is next to the Migros and your home is 5km away.
