Wanting to visit friends or family and want to save money on the extortionate petrol prices? Annoyed at the ever increasing rip-off train fares? Well BlablaCar can help - they connect drivers with people looking for a ride, designed to specifically help people share car journeys, make new friends and save on travel costs. The idea is simple: drivers ‘rent’ their car seats on trips they are already making, essentially sharing the cost of the petrol and upkeep. For passengers, BlablaCar is by far the cheapest and most social alternative way to travel, and better for the environment. With fewer cars on the road, members have so far saved over 200,000 tons of CO2 since the launch.
Over 100 universities have so far joined the Campus service and each has their own dedicated Campus page, making it easy to find both drivers and passengers heading in the same direction. Nicolas Brusson, co-founder of Blablacar says “Campus is for savvy socials so they can make new friends and save money. Whether it’s a journey home to see family, a weekend visiting friends at other Universities, or a road trip to Cornwall, Blackpool or even Paris, BlablaCar takes the hassle out of students looking for a cheaper ride.”
