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.

Poor customer service as a car owner

They have a fancy customer service chat that no one actually uses or answers. I’ve done 2 rentals now and both users havnt topped the petrol up both times. Trying to claim the money back is laborious and they don’t payout for 5 days. Not a very good system.

Scam. Avoid this app

They take your money before verifying you can rent then there is no customer service and no way to delete your account or the details and copies of documents you provided. This app is a massive security risk avoid it.

Bad system - Bad Customer Service

Bad experience from start to finish with this company. I strongly recommend looking elsewhere.
