New Private car rental system - sharoo.com
 
In the Migros magazine this week, information about a new private car rental system, linked to Migros, Mobility and La Mobilière insurance.

If you have a car which you do not use all the time and would like to rent out, be it a Fiat 500 or a Merc, whatever size, etc, you can register with www.sharoo.com and advetise it for rent. You choose how much you want for it and deal and that's it. La Mobilière extends the same cover as the one you have with them for free- and all you need to do is to have a 'Sharoo box' installed in your car by a registered garage, which enables a Bluetooth connection with the rentor's smarphone so no exchange of keys is necessary.

Very interesting- the AirnB of car rental. Traditonal car rentors are not going to be happy! Must check the site re what happens if the car is stolen, or if rentor damages car at high speed or when under the influence or high alcohol, etc? And also re foreign driving licences and addresses. Anyone got the answer to above?

Very interesting, this is something I've been waiting for. I am looking forward to hearing more from people who have experience of this system!

If not this system, then hopefully self-driving cars will make on demand, car-pooled alternative to public transport.

Can't find any answers to my questions on their website- but there is a contact e-mail, so will drop them a line.

Anybody rents their car through Sharoo?
 
I would love to hear the opinions of some people who make their cars available to others via Sharoo, I wonder if there are any in here?

Some example questions:

Are you satisfied? What are the main annoyances? How does it work when the car breaks down while someone else is driving it? How much money do you make in the end? Is it worth it?

No I am sorry- life got busy and I forgot.

Never and ever spring to mind. From both sides of the deal.

bump

anyone has experience renting his car ?

i have a cabrio and no dedicated parking so i'm not sure about it, + it seems to be a small investment (for the box and monthly fee).

is it worth it ?

Yes, I started in November and so far I am very happy, making definitely more than 10% annualised ROI.
