How to carshare a car

Where to find the service, how to pay for the trip, what is included in the price of the service, and where you can leave your car.

In recent years, car sharing has developed rapidly and has won the universal love of car enthusiasts. This method of transportation has many advantages and almost no disadvantages.

In the Grand Duchy, the car sharing market is monopolized by two companies: Carloh and Flex. Both are supported by the official state carrier CFL.

In fact, not only car sharing but also ride sharing is now popular in Luxembourg. These two concepts are very similar and sometimes closely related.

Car sharing

A service for renting a car for a certain period of time. Usually a few hours, sometimes a few days. Car sharing frees the user from the need to maintain the car.

Ride sharing

It's a form of transportation in which several people get together to go somewhere at a certain time and share the cost. If you've heard of BlaBlaCar, it's a prime example of ride sharing. It differs in that most of the passengers may not have a driver's license at all.

If you like to drive and/or don't want to be dependent on anyone, carpooling is for you. If you want to relax on the road, chat or listen to music, choose a ride share and enjoy the ride.
