Heading to Houghton Festival ?
Have space in your car or need a lift to Houghton, GoCarShare is the answer. You'll meet new friends, save money, save the environment and start your festival weekend early.
Car Sharing is a great way to travel - simply look for a driver or passenger who is travelling from your way, and offer them a journey or ask for a seat. If you can't find a match, then post your journey so people going to Houghton can find you!
GoCarShare Booking System
We’ve introduced a new booking system:
Passengers ‘book’ the journey. Once the driver has accepted, the passenger will be asked to prepay via PayPal.
A week after the journey has been completed we will transfer the money to the driver, minus our fee of 15%, which usually works out as just a couple of pounds. Drivers are welcome to factor this cost into the price they quote to take a passenger.
We don’t enforce the booking system, but it is important to use because:
- It prevents people dropping out at the last minute so offers the drivers security.
- It helps ensures the safety of the platform; everyone is trackable.
- This is our way of funding the development of GoCarShare and ensuring that we are here next year too.
We hope you value GoCarShare and support us in using the booking system. Please shoot through any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
