I have heard there are people in Munich who rent out their own cars when they are not using them. I would be very interested in this service but I don't know where to look. Any ideas?
Not something I've heard of - how does that work with insurance then?
I suppose they need an insurance which covers the car to be driven by anyone..not 100% sure myself. I hope someone will have heard of this scheme; it sounds like such a great idea and I'd like to get involved.
I don't know how I'd feel about strangers driving my car - some people drive like idiots burning gas and if it wasn't there car probably wouldnt give a dam! There would be a lot of extra wear and tear on to contend with and of course the mileage would increas - how's that going to affect the vehicle depreciation - me thinks much faster than normal.
you can rent private cars through a third party - they take care of the insurance and it is incorporated into the overall cost. This is one company which offers private carsharing http://www.tamyca.de/ - the site is in german only
