UK EasyCar Founder Rolls Out Peer-to-Peer Car Sharing

Launched in London at the beginning of 2012, the Car Club adds another car-sharing company to the mix and runs as a subsidiary to the U.K.-based car rental company EasyCar, according to The Guardian.

While the service will work alongside EasyCar’s rental operations, the Car Club is a peer-to-peer, car-sharing model that allows car owners to set the rental prices, duration and available rental periods.

The Car Club uses a smartphone app to allow entry into the owner’s vehicle. Click here to go to the Car Club website.
