hiyacar is the UK’s longest trading peer to peer car sharing platform operating with over 100,000 members throughout the country. The smart service allows car owners to make money by renting their cars to a vetted community of drivers.
hiyacar aims to change local mobility by providing drivers and renters with a car when and where they want one. This doesn’t only make better use of some of the 38 million vehicles that sit idle for 95% of the time, but also turns personal cars into assets whilst reducing ownership.
hiyacar offers quality service with bespoke peer to peer car sharing insurance and multiple layers of digital driver verification like facial recognition and liveness detection. The first to offer QuickStart Keyless technology, hiyacar has created an easy and safe way to share cars, alongside best in class member support.
hiyacar is also the first peer to peer car sharing platform to trial with a UK council and run a fully accredited car club (COMO UK) using a professional pool of owned cars, including the likes of Toyota.
Founded in 2014 by avid car enthusiasts Graeme Risby and Rob Larmour, hiyacar has raised a total of £11m from investors including angels, the founders of Photobox, and Kwik Fit owners Itochu.
Vision: To be present on every street in the UK and change the way people use cars forever.
It’s car sharing from the community, for the community.
