Kiwis appear keen to share cars

My Car Your RentalKiwis are taking to the car sharing trend by storm as attested to by car rental company My Car Your Rental, which says it has experienced “massive growth” in less than six months due to demand.

In 2014, there were over 25,000 car sharing vehicles all over Europe, and as those numbers have grown, the trend has spread to New Zealand, where car owners are shown to be the most open in the world to loaning their vehicles, says Henrik Stovring, founder of My Car Your Rental.

New Zealand-based peer-to-peer My Car Your Rental creates a business platform for vehicle owners to list their cars for rent accompanied by insurance.

According to Stovring, more than 400 vehicle owners have listed their cars for rent in less than six months, and these numbers have the potential to take a lot of vehicles off the road. In fact, Stovring estimates that if all 400 of the vehicles were rented out at one time, then approximately 4000 cars would be taken off the road.
