Hiyacar is the UK’s longest trading peer to peer car sharing platform, operating throughout the UK with over 100,000 members. The service allows car owners to make money renting their cars to a vetted community of drivers.
Hiyacar’s aim is to change local mobility by providing drivers with a car when and where they want one - making better use of some of the 38 million vehicles that sit idle for 95% of the time, turning them into assets whilst reducing ownership. The quality service comes with bespoke peer to peer car sharing insurance, multi layers of driver verification including facial recognition and liveness detection - and the first to offer QuickStart keyless technology, making hiyacar the easiest and safest way to share cars, alongside their best in class member support.
Hiyacar was 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.
Hiyacar was founded by long time sharing and car fans Graeme Risby and Rob Larmour in 2014, having raised a total of £10.5m from investors including Itochu who own Kwik Fit and Angels and the founders of Photobox. Their vision is to be on every street and change the way people use cars, forever - so car sharing from the community, for the community.
