Company description

BlaBlaCar connects people who need to travel long distances to motorists who have empty seats, so they can share the costs of a journey.

The innovative website and app allow drivers to publish a planned journey. Just like other travel sites, passengers can then search for and book their ride. BlaBlaCar provides a range of features to create a secure, trust-based community, thanks to a 24/7 member relations team, verified contact details and ratings. 

The community is growing fast thanks to very strong word of mouth and highly favourable exogenous factors like rising fuel costs and expensive train fares. BlaBlaCar now has over 7M members.

With over a million people travelling together every month in the community, BlaBlaCar has created a scalable, sustainable, mainstream and money-saving intercity transport alternative for the whole European continent, stretching from the UK to Russia.
