If you’re on here reading this blog you already know how awesome carpooling for your daily commute is. Along with the benefits of a comfortable, less congested travel, you also get the added benefits of networking and saving money. But, have you ever thought about carpooling for longer journeys?
Maybe on the weekend, you plan to visit another city for a bit of rest and relaxation or to maybe meet family and friends who live close by? Well, the Quick Ride app is brimming with users providing rides and requesting rides for these locations. Let’s take a look at what you stand to gain by carpooling on these journeys.
As fuel prices rise so do the prices of travel. Bus fares always rise with relation to the increase of fuel price but never go back down once the fuel prices go down. Carpools, on the other hand, works out a lot cheaper especially if the car is packed. The more the merrier and helps make the ride economical too.
Bus journeys also tend to be more tiring and a lot of people feel stuck in the claustrophobic environment. A carpool provides a lot more comfort and a chance to take a break to enjoy the beauty around us whenever you feel the need.
Ease of use
Booking buses, train tickets or even airline tickets require consideration and deliberation. Cancellations are another headache to deal with and you can never be sure if you will get your money back upon canceling your plans. Booking a carpool through the Quick Ride app is easy and painless, you can be on your next intercity or interstate ride in just three 3 clicks.
We talked about how the cancellations of regular modes of transportation can be an issue. Depending on when you have to cancel your plans you might get almost no return on the booking amount. Carpooling, on the other hand, doesn’t require you to promise or pay any money before the trip. You can choose to cancel at the last moment, up to three times, if you have other plans or emergencies without spending a rupee.
Aren’t all these enough reasons to try carpooling for your next trip outside the city or the state? Give it a shot and tell us how it went!
