LEASYS is set to offer an innovative peer-to-peer car sharing programme.
Called U-Go, the leasing programme allows lessees to share their car on a peer-to-peer platform and thereby reduce the monthly cost of their rental.
The U-Go programme has already been launched in Italy. Leasys plans to roll it out to the UK in September, along with France and Spain. By the end of the year, U-Go will be available in all Leasys operating countries.
The U-Go programme will be available with the Alfa Romeo Giulietta MY19.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Leasys customers who sign up to U-Go are called ‘Players’. These Players can make their Giulietta available to U-Go ‘Users’ who need a car for a few hours or even a few days.
Booking and availability is managed by both and app and on the website ugo.leasys.com.
Players sign up indicating the features of their cars, availability and daily rate.
Users can sign up and locate a car by city and period of interest, arranging the pick-up and payment directly with the U-Go Player. At the end of the sharing period they can review each other, creating a community through direct feedback and a peer-review system.
Leasys says the cars are available at special, advantageous rates allowing U-Go to provide widespread response to local mobility needs.
“With U-Go, mobility becomes shared, efficient and sustainable,” explained a Leasys spokesperson. It is estimated to reach 50,000 registered users by 2021.”
