Liftshare Week

07 Oct 2019 to 11 Oct 2019

What is it?

Our annual ‚ÄėLiftshare Week‚Äô is fast approaching! This is a national initiative to promote the benefits of sharing car journeys. This year, the week runs from 7th ‚Äď 13th October and is all about promoting the savings that users can make just by sharing their journey to work!

We know one of the biggest factors to why our members love Liftshare is how much they save on fuel and parking costs. We want to get even more people sharing and saving money, especially as the average regular sharer on our platform saves over £1000 per year!

Imagine saving 50% on petrol or diesel every time you went to the pumps to fill up. When you split the cost with your Liftshare partner, that’s effectively what you’re doing.

How can I get involved?

Simply sign up, add your journey and find your match. It’s that easy.

Or if you’re already a member but aren‚Äôt sharing, log back into your account and review your matches to find someone new going your way.

Register or login here

Competition

This year, any member that forms a Liftshare team between 30th September and 20th October 2019 will be entered into a prize draw to win a Red Letter day up to the value of £150.
