Save money and reduce emissions with car share services

What is a car share service?

A car share service is a flexible approach to accessing vehicles for a short period of time for business travel purposes. It offers a model of car rental that means employees can access vehicles, as and when they need them, to fulfil their roles.

It is a great way of offering employees who drive their own vehicles for work purposes (known as ‘grey fleet’) an alternative to claiming mileage.

What are the benefits?

Running a car share programme will help you to:

  • reduce mileage reimbursement costs
  • lower carbon emissions
  • relieve pressure on parking spaces

It’s popular with councils and universities. Find out more in these case studies:
