Hiyacar welcomes Getaround’s UK owners

GetAround has operated in the UK since 2019, entering the UK market through its acquisition of Drivy. To say the years since have been difficult for the UK car-sharing industry would be somewhat of an understatement.

Car-sharing is an evolving and growing industry and it is saddening, but not surprising, to hear of another player in the UK ceasing operations.

We all appreciate the efforts made by GetAround of raising awareness of the financial, societal and environmental benefits of car-sharing and making car-sharing more accessible and convenient to a wide audience. These are values that Hiyacar shares and will continue to uphold.

We extend an invitation to all GetAround members to continue their car-sharing journey with Hiyacar.
