With vehicles sourced from private owners and dedicated fleets, Drivy allows owners to reduce the cost of owning a vehicle and fleet owners to maximise their investment.

Drivy aims to bring fresh air to cities, by encouraging fewer cars on the road and more freedom to move.

  • To get out of the city you pretty much need a car, and when I tried to book, the standard agencies all charged more than 50 euros a day. So I checked Drivy, a peer-to-peer car rental service, where I found a compact 2009 Renault Clio. My total came to about 30 euros, and included something you won’t get at Hertz: a personal thank you for liberating the region from the Germans.
