VUB carpool database

A kilometer with the car can easily  cost you €0,34. Sharing your ride can save you a lot of money. As compensation we suggest €0,08 per kilometer, for detours €0,21 per kilometer.

Insurance: no worries

Your passengers are insured by the own car insurance for physical damage in an accident during a carpool ride, also for the detours for a carpooler. Therefore carpooling does not require any additional insurance. Material damage is covered by the own comprehensive insurance. If a passenger accidentally damages the car, the family insurance can offer a solution.
