Hire a local car by the hour or the day in the UK with the Hiyacar car-sharing app. Hiyacar aims to change local mobility by providing drivers and renters with a car when and where they want one.

Founded in 2014, Hiyacar is the UK's longest trading peer-to-peer car-sharing platform operating with over 180,000 members throughout the country. The smart service allows car owners to make money by renting their cars to a vetted community of drivers. Since 2020, Hiyacar is also an accredited CoMoUK car club and now hosts a myriad of local community car clubs & property developers car-sharing schemes (S106). Since 2022, Hiyacar has also started offering a pool car-sharing platform for NHS trusts. This doesn't only make better use of some of the 38 million vehicles that sit idle for 95% of the time, but also turns personal cars into assets whilst reducing ownership.

Our app is the future of local car hire and car-sharing, letting you hire cars direct from people in your neighbourhood instantly, using our unique keyless technology. Say goodbye to key handovers: our keyless QuickStartTM solution allows for instant local car hire, letting hirers securely book, unlock, and start cars from their phone. Choose from a wide range of vehicles, from your local city car, premium cars, vans, or 7-seaters.

Hiyacar's technology is trusted all around the UK. Our platform is used by local community car clubs, professional rental companies, local businesses, your neighbours, and even NHS trusts to enable quick, safe, and convenient car-sharing in Greater London, Bristol, Brighton, Edinburgh, Oxfordshire, Swale, Norfolk, & Suffolk.

Hiyacar is operating as a car club for the London boroughs of Islington, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Hackney, and the cities of Bristol, & Oxford. We also have cars in Southwark, Wandsworth, Greenwich, Lambeth, Newham, Camden, & Haringey. From N16 to SW16, search, book, drive.

The days of sixt, Europcar etc are numbered

Once you discover Hiyacar you need no other, cheaper, simpler, great help with the chat and a joy to use, thank you

I am updating this after one year + and even thou hiyacar is great the owners are an issue in term's of cancelling bookings made same day or next day mostly. I had three cancelled in a very short space of time, obviously they needed the car possibly themselves. Personally i nearly returned for this trip to sixt as I was very angry about my time being wasted as its one of the most precious assets one has

HIYACAR i sincerely hope you are limiting how many bookings a car holder can cancel in a month/year. Its killing your great idea, thats the only issue.

Efficient, easy to use and cost effective

I’ve used Hiyacar twice now and both experiences have been great. It’s perfect for Londoners who, most of the time don’t need a car, but might require one for a special trip- I went camping, and then to visit my parents.

The whole booking process is really simple, much much easier than using one of the big hire car agencies. Not only is it much cheaper, but more convenient as you can return at a time of your choosing, and often the location is close to home. Brilliant app it’s been a game changer for me!

Great car hire service from Hiyacar

A friend told me about this service and said they used it for a long time when they needed it before they bought a second car. Getting verified took a very short time and the fee was given back as credit for first hire I believe. Great response times to queries when I had a few things I didn’t know what to do with being my first time. Clean car too. Will be using them again.
