Heading to BoomTown Fair ?

Share a ride to BoomTown with GoCarShare this year and we'll enter you into a competition to WIN A PAIR OF FREE TICKETS for next year! Because that's just the way we roll...

A world of unity, creativity & freedom, Boomtown is a festival set in the Matterley bowl in Hampshire, UK on the second weekend of August. Fiercely independent and now heading into its 10th Chapter, Boomtown fuses a diverse line-up of underground and global music with boundary pushing immersive art, theatre and performance coming together as a living, breathing, fictitious city.

Made up of 14 distinct themed areas, Boomtown follows a storyline that evolves each year to create a world within a world. A theatrically-led experience like no other, the event’s hundreds of actors bring the film-like street sets to life where attendees (citizens) are encouraged to become their inner character and be part of the story themselves…

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE GATES WILL BE OPEN ON WEDNESDAY ONLY TO CARS WITH 3 OR MORE PEOPLE IN. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE 3 OR MORE PEOPLE IN YOUR CAR YOU WILL BE REFUSED ENTRY.

GoCarShare 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:

1.     It prevents people dropping out at the last minute so offers the drivers security.

2.     It helps ensures the safety of the platform; everyone is trackable.

3.     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 hello@gocarshare.com
