Detailed Description

Update

BlaBlaCar is a car sharing website that connects drivers with empty seats and paying passengers to offset distance travel costs. It has created a new, affordable and sustainable way to travel, currently used by more than 1m members to travel every month. BlaBlaCar’s 9m-member community offers thousands of destinations across Europe every day. Backed by Accel Partners, Index Ventures and ISAI, it operates in twelve countries across Europe, and is based in Paris with offices in London, Madrid, Milan, Hamburg, Warsaw and Moscow. The site and free mobile apps provide a range of features to create a secure, trust-based community and easy connections between drivers and passengers. For instance, members specify how chatty they are on the scale “Bla”, “Blabla” and “Blablabla”, hence the name BlaBlaCar.
