Car sharing is a commitment-free way to get around. It gives you the freedom to decide on the spot. Car sharing will also save you money especially if you choose to skip buying a car and combine car sharing with other ways to travel.
You will save yourself a lot of money and trouble by opting for a GoTo car sharing. But how can you know how big your savings will be?
Here’s how to work out how much your car sharing price will come to. You will need to begin by estimating how much time you will need to use a car.
How Will You Use Car Sharing?
Think of how you will use the service. Perhaps you occasionally don’t hear your alarm clock, so you know that jumping on a bus is not an option. It's definitely not an option on hangover mornings. Perhaps you need a car for the fortnightly shopping spree to the supermarket or to go to your yoga class twice a week.
Here’s how to calculate what it would cost you:
Becoming a GoTo car sharing member costs €7 per month. This is the fee you pay to be part of the car sharing club and benefit from using the app and our top-notch customer service support.
Monthly membership price: €7.
Our flat per minute rate is €0.28. This is the rate you pay for your trip. The 15-mins reservation time before your trip is free. Extending your reservation will cost you €0.14 per minute.
Price for a 20-minute trip: €5.60.
Price for a 20-minute trip and 5-minute extra reservation: €6.30 (€5.60 + €0.70).
Once you have used the service for some time and know that you use it for approximately 6-7 hours per month, you may want to get onto our Savings Package.
This package costs €99 for 400 mins of driving. It saves you €20 because it includes the €7 per month membership fee and the per-minute rate is €0.25. Buying the Savings Package allows you to plan your expenses to the detail. It will also be much easier for you to calculate how much you’re saving because you will know that using a GoTo car sharing car will cost you €1,188 per year (while on this package). This is far cheaper than buying your own car and paying for insurance, fuel, maintenance, car washes and parking.
Monthly Savings Package price: €99 (capped price per month, including membership and 400 minutes of driving time).
