BlaBlaCar

A ridesharing platform with 40 million users, Blablacar gives you access to destinations without worrying about on-the-road chaos. The basic idea is that you carpool with locals who are already planning to drive your route and have space in their car. With some flexibility you’ll get to your destination – often faster and cheaper than other means. On the website or app, enter your departure and arrival points and your date of travel, sift through the profiles of drivers who’ve posted pre-planned drives and find one whose timing and preferences match yours. Request to join the ride, wait be accepted, and pay your share of the set price.
