Rent your neighbour’s car with SnappCar


Not owning a car in the Netherlands is great - until you want to go away for a weekend, need to move your stuff or have to take a quick trip between cities.

That’s why SnappCar created the perfect car-sharing platform!

Rent your neighbour’s car

SnappCar offers local car rental that is easy, affordable and hassle-free by connecting people who need a car with neighbours who rent theirs out.

By providing access to many different cars that are conveniently close, SnappCar helps you to enjoy special or everyday activities while keeping your life simple.

Rent the car that fits your needs

Why own a car when you can choose from dozens of different ones from the people who live around you? This way you can find and rent a vehicle that fits your needs:
rent a moving van
rent a camper van
rent a convertible for the summer
rent a hatchback for a weekend off
rent a Tesla and try an electrical vehicle
rent a vintage car for a special occasion

Many car owners allow renters to take their car to other countries so you can use SnappCar to visit France, Belgium, Germany and beyond.

For me (like for tourist) much more comfortable to use car rental service (for example like this ) than car sharing, because I have more freedom and I don't need to look where is the car. I think this service good for local citizens, not for tourists.
