Building a Community of Trust

Safety and trust are key concerns of people who wish to car share. To ensure this we have created the mobile verification system, enhancing trust and transparency in our community.
How does mobile number verification help?
By verifying your mobile number (you must be logged in to the site to access this page) you show other members that the mobile number you identified on the site is indeed yours. We will then link your profile to that mobile number and not just your email.This ensures that your profile is trustworthy, and thereby increases your chances of having people contact you to share a ride!
Verify your mobile number in 2 simple steps
- Access the 'Verify my phone number' section under your 'profile' (you must be logged in to the site to access this page).
- Send us a text message containing the 4-digit code provided in this section to 07537 404475. It's Free! (excl. cost of sending a normal Text messages)
Within 24 hours you will receive an email confirming the verification of your mobile number. Once verified you will have a verification seal displayed right below your number. This will reassure the other members of the community that you are a person who is genuinely interested in sharing rides, encouraging them to contact you!
