“Car sharing is a very smart and fun way of travelling. It saves you money, gives you the opportunity to meet new people and it is friendly with the environment. goCarShare are doing a great job at putting these smart people in touch so they can match common journeys to attend our festivals. Their personalised marketing initiatives have already delivered excellent results and raised awareness amongst our festival goers”. - Laura Pando, Sustainability Coordinator, Festival Republic (Reading, Leeds & Latitude) 2013

Travelling to Reading Festival 2014
Car sharing is a fantastic way to get to festivals. Find people who are passionate about music and the arts, and start your festival adventure with them. You don’t have to spend the whole week with them, but along the journey you might just find you want to.
The idea of car sharing to a festival is simple: people who live nearby share their journey and save some money. Drivers or passengers can post their journey on this page, and if a fellow festival goer lives nearby and needs a cheap way of travelling there, they can either book your seat or offer you ride. We have a suggested seat price which we think you’ll find is fair, so the passenger can get there cheaply, while the driver can make back some petrol money from the drive. Hopefully during the trip you’ll make a new friend or two.
