General – What is GoCar
Car sharing is a membership based program where, once you join, you can rent a car or van for as little as half an hour, 24/7, 365 days a year. Our service aims to reduce car dependency by providing on demand cars near you live, work and play so you have a car close to hand should you need one.
Once you’ve signed up you simply book the car you want for the time you need, unlock it using our app/membership card, take the keys from the glovebox and drive it as normal. To finish your booking you just drop the car back to where you picked up.
You are charged by the hour depending on the car type(starting from €8 an hour for our small city cars), the first 50km of your journey are included free and any distance over 50 is charged at €0.50 per km. You can view all of our prices on our Rates page.
Our cars are parked in on street locations so you can simply walk up and hop in.We have cars across the country in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and several other counties! Want to see where your closest GoCar is? Check out our interactive map here!
Car Sharing suits everyone from the urban dweller, to the one car family, the SME start up to the large corporations! Car sharing is the perfect addition for your on-the-go lifestyle. Car sharing works when combined with other public transport options such as buses, trains and trams along with taxis. Car sharing gets you that last mile that public transport can’t, we’re there for when you just need a car!
You must be 21 years or older and hold a full driving licence for a minimum of 2 years. We can accept international driving licences however please check if your licence is eligible first by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are a return to base service so all cars must be brought back to the street you picked up from to end your trip.
