General

  1. Access to and use of this site is subject to these Terms of Use.
  2. These Terms of Use may be amended from time to time, you should check them whenever you visit this site. Your continued use of this site will constitute your acceptance of these and any amended Terms of Use.

Our services

  1. We provide a virtual marketplace for those who seek and those who provide sharing services. As an aggregator, we enable you, our customer, to find suppliers of services who can connect you with people who offer shared property, shared transport and other services. You should be 18 or over to access our services. 
  2. We also enable people who have services to offer, whether hosts (occupiers of properties) or owners (of means of transport), to find service providers who can connect them with potential users of their services.  
  3. Our services are free for you to use. We receive a fee or commission from a service provider when you use our service to purchase services from them or to register with them. 
  4. You cannot enter into a contract on this site – we merely connect you with service providers with whom you can contract. 
  5. We aim only to list reputable sites but we do not endorse any of the sites that we list or any individual listings on those sites. 

Risk

  1. Sharing services is not inherently a high risk activity. Millions of people share transport and accommodation every day without coming to harm. However no human encounter is without risk and you need to be aware that sharing accommodation or transport with someone you have never met has an element of unpredictability and risk. Different service providers have different ways of reducing and limiting risks.  You will need to make your own enquiries and take your own precautions so that you are satisfied that you have reduced the risks to a level that is acceptable to you. You are solely responsible for your interactions and communications with service providers and people you are introduced to through this site.

  1. We use reasonable efforts to ensure that the information on this site is accurate, but we cannot guarantee this, and can accept no liability for errors or omissions in the information we provide. Most of the information we provide comes from third parties over whom we have no control. 
  2. This site can link you to a number of providers of products and services. We do not provide these services ourselves – they are provided by third parties over whom we have no control. It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself that you wish to obtain any product or service before doing so. We are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage you may suffer or incur in connection with any product or service you obtain after using this site or for any acts, omissions, errors or defaults of any third party in connection with that product or service.
