Safety Tips for Travelling

When it comes to travelling, every member is responsible for his or her own safety. We recommend that members follow some basic security measures outlined below.

  • Never exchange home addresses with your travelling companion before you meet them.
  • Always arrange to meet in a public place.
  • Tell a friend or family member details of whom you will be travelling with, when and to where.
  • Make sure you telephone to say you have arrived safely at the completion of your journey.
  • You are under no obligation to go ahead with any car share journey.
  • Make sure you show each other your IDs - passports, student cards or driving licences - so you know you're travelling with the right person.
  • Make sure you let your journey partner know if you cannot make the arranged journey or if you are going to be delayed.
  • Never use a mobile phone whilst driving. Park in a safe place and make the call.
  • If you have any doubts about your travelling companion, for any reason, you should not travel with them.
  • If you have any problems please contact us immediately and we will undertake to help in any way that we can.
