It was in Marseille in early 2010 that Paulin Dementhon had the idea for Drivy. Three families living in his street were sharing a car and the related costs, with the help of an Excel spreadsheet. Sharing a car suddenly seemed like the obvious solution – the cost of car ownership is rising, but they're still cluttering up our streets. So why not optimise our resources by sharing our cars?
Drivy is a car hire platform that lets you hire a car from locals, or hire out your own car to offset some of the costs.
With a growing number of Drivy cars across Europe, rental is becoming an increasingly efficient alternative to owning a car: vehicles within walking distance, a service that offers good value for money and as many options as there are ways to travel, from city cars to vans or convertibles.
Today, Drivy has 1.5 million users and offers 45,000 cars for hire throughout the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Austria and Belgium.
