With travel usually our second biggest expense after accommodation, car-sharing isn’t a new idea. Therefore when Martin Voorzanger ditched his car in bike-friendly Amsterdam, hoping to take advantage of all the cars with only one person in them, he was surprised to find no service available. Founding car-share company Toogether, Mr Voorzanger gave Amsterdamers the opportunity to travel together if they have the same journey with both saving money and possibly making friends at the same time.
He commented in an interview with euronews during LeWeb:
“What you spend on travel is huge and actually you don’t have to spend so much, you can share with other people your rides and get a nice reduction in your costs from sharing and at the same time meet new people who are interesting to talk to.”
