Car Share in Newcastle, NSW - Peer-to-Peer car sharing

Maryse Dubois

Car sharing in newcastle is about to get neighbourly!

Uber Carshare’s peer-to-peer car share network has been growing quickly in Sydney and Melbourne, and now we’re super excited to be launching in Newcastle, NSW.

Car hire can be inconvenient – you need to trek to the depot, fill out forms, and return the car during opening hours.

Peer-to-peer car sharing is a simple, smart and cheap alternative to car hire in Newcastle. We’re like a car match-maker. We connect people who have cars (but don’t drive them all the time) to people who need to drive (but live car free most of the time). And we provide all of the technology and online systems to make the process trouble-free.

Need to hire a car for a few hours or a few days?

There are thousands of cars all around you, sitting idle most of the time. Why not borrow one of them? It’s free to join Uber Carshare, and you’ll pay low hourly or daily rates, plus distance, to hire your neighbours’ cars.

Fuel is included with every booking and you're covered by damage and loss cover for peace of mind.

Wondering how peer-to-peer car sharing works? It’s pretty simple, really.
