Do you need to travel?
1. Find a ride
Just enter your departure and arrival points and your travel date. Choose a driver to travel with - if you need more info, ask the driver a public question!
2. Book with credit/debit card
Book your seat via secure credit/debit card payment - you’ll then receive a booking code. Your driver will be immediately notified of your booking - you'll get their phone number to arrange the final details.
3. Travel together
Be at your planned meeting point on time. Give your booking code to the driver during the ride.
Do you have empty seats?
1. Offer a ride
Enter your departure and arrival point, choose the date and time, and select your price per passenger. Choose between manual approval (to approve booking requests yourself) and instant approval (for immediate confirmation of bookings).
2. Your passengers book and pay online
Once your passengers have booked a seat in your car, you’ll be automatically notified by email or SMS. You’ll get your passengers’ phone numbers to arrange the final details.
3. Travel together
Be at your planned meeting point on time. Your passengers will give you their booking codes for you to request your payment.
4. Request to transfer your funds
Simply enter the booking code, ask for the money to be transferred, and your payment will soon be winging its way to your account.
Trust and Safety
There are three important ways in which we create the environment for a secure car sharing community. First, member identities are authentic. Second, the community self-moderates, using profiles and ratings to evaluate members and vet those that do not respect the BlaBlaCar spirit of positive community collaboration. Third, BlaBlaCar has a dedicated Member Relations team, available every day to support users, so you always get the best experience out of BlaBlaCar.
Passengers only contribute to drivers’ journey costs and hence no profits are made by drivers. This is ensured by capping the price per passenger and the number of passengers drivers can take so that fuel contributions are not higher than HMRC’s Approved Mileage Payment Allowance. All members of the Association of British Insurers have agreed that so long as drivers don’t make a profit their insurance is not affected.
On top of drivers’ existing insurance, BlaBlaCar has partnered with AXA to provide additional insurance, free of charge, on all journeys offered and booked through BlaBlaCar’s online booking system. This includes Breakdown Cover and Onward Travel, Legal Protection as well as Personal Accident cover. Find out more about this additional insurance.
