Car share online & cut the cost of commuting – Money tip #196

1 min Read Published: 03 Oct 2012

Opting to car share, rather than drive yourself to and from work, is not only good for the environment but will also save you money. But the good news is that you don't have to have a car to take part.

Sites such as liftshare.com allow you to find someone to car share with or even set up a car share scheme at your place of work. You might ask why would you want to car share with someone? Well the obvious answer is so you can split the cost of petrol costs, saving you money, but using one car instead of two or more is good for the environment.

Now is as good a time as any to look into car sharing, after all it's national liftshare week (who makes these campaigns up?)
