Digital platform for car sharing

Social Car is a pioneering initiative in Spain that lets car owners rent out their automobiles for a limited time to people who temporarily need a car. This enables the owners to save in maintenance costs and environmental impact, while letting the renters have access to an automobile at a reasonable price. Owners and renters register for free online, and Social Car handles the rest: the service, payment and insurance. In addition to its profits and the environmental benefits that stem from sharing a single car, the business has other advantages: Social Car dedicates 0.7% of its income to charity work in Spain. In fact, users can choose the cause to which they would like to contribute, and can even suggest charities.
