Someone wants to rent out a car only Friday evening to Sunday evening?

Hey there

Anyone wants to rent out his/her car during weekends? I need a car only Friday evening to Sunday evening.

Thinking of using Sharoo.com for this but renting regularly for 2-3 days will become expensive quickly.

Please DM!

Are you serious?

I'm definitely living on a different planet to some people on here.

Sharely.ch has hundreds of people willing to do so.

But if you need to rent a car almost every weekend you might want to consider to just buy one.

Don't be discouraged, OP, and keep looking, some folk do do it that way. Perhaps you could ask at community centres near where you live.

Simply renting one is cheaper than mobility, for any drive longer than 50km; and multi-day even more so.


@OP: Is renting too expensive? You can find cars from 50€/CHF a day, if needed.
I honestly doubt any one person would rent it for less privately (especially considering insurances etc.).

I know people that car share.

I don't know anyone that says that the owner can have the car Mon-Fri when they are at work and come the weekends, every weekend they give the car up to someone else.

Re: Someone wants to rent out a car only Friday evening to Sunday evening?

I think Hertz allows you to specify pick-up and drop-off times. You could specify that you want a car from Friday evening to Sunday evening.

I'd guess other car rental companies might offer similar features, but I think you'd have to check first. Some have a internet site.

I know a man who shares a car with his neighbour.

Neither of them feels he can quite justify owning a car. Both also use public transport, cycle and at least one has a motorbike (which they don't share).

Some specific days are always assigned to each of them (fortunately they have different needs) and for the rest, they "reserve" the usage of the car with each other, as they go along.

The formal ownership is with one of them, but they split all the running costs in proportion to the number of km they each drive. Both keep a log of km used and expenses paid. They tally up each month.

Yes, I said that people here car share - typically in the manner that you describe.

That's not what the OP wants though, is it?

Your charged per 24 hours, so that could easily just turn into 3 days rather than 2.

Yes, Tom, I think you're right, and that I mis-read OP's opening post.

Sometimes the same car a day extra is even cheaper.
