General questions

What is Carpooling?

The concept of carpooling is really very simple! Instead of using your car on a personal basis to make your daily or one-time trips, you use your car to drive several people to the same place. You choose to be either the driver or the passenger transported. Saving time, money and sharing, carpooling has existed for 30 years but has only started to spread in several countries in recent years. It can be occasional or regular, over long or short distances. So do not miss this mode of transportation and get started!

Why Easy As is the best?

Great Team :
One night after dinner, we were sharing a glass of Pinot Noir on the deck and we were talking about businesses that exists in Europe but not here in New Zealand. Suddenly, one appears as an evidence : Carpooling!
Because, we all experienced carpooling in Europe, we thought that New Zealand should be using it more. Aotearoa needs to be greener and kiwis love sharing so it’s a perfect match, don’t you think so ?

Easy As Carpooling is giving you the opportunity to travel safe, ecological and economical and share a good moment on the road. Locals will be saving time and money and Travellers will meet locals and travel mates to share the trip with. It’s a win-win!
And the plus : we will all be protecting to environnement in a friendly way

Who are we ?

 Passionate people from Europe, we want to bring amazing service in New Zealand and give people the opportunity to travel around Nz with travel mates as well as People to traveller faster and cheaper in their everyday life…
Let’s bring good transport in Aotearoa and take care of our beautiful environment.

Why Carpooling is social?

Sharing a ride offers the opportunity to meet other people and even make new friends.
Travelling around New Zealand can be expensive, not easy and lonely. If you bought a car and van and want to share experience and save money , here is the clue
If you don’t feel confident to drive, meet great people and share their cost
Commuting can often get lonely, especially on longer routes. Carpooling with colleagues or friends can be fun and relieve you from loneliness.
Another indirect benefit of carpooling is that you will get to leave office at the same time everyday, rather than when the work finishes.
Also, if you find driving to work stressful, carpooling can alleviate the frustration in travelling to and from the workplace. You may even find time to carry out other tasks during the drive instead, such as preparing for meetings etc

Why is Carpooling economical?

Carpooling allows you to share the cost of gas and parking,Ferry Crossing, Toll Roads cutting your expenses by nearly 50% or more; the more occupants in your carpool the more you save. Carpooling is also socially economical. Not only will you be saving, but you will also help reduce the costs we all pay towards the construction of new roads, road maintenance and air pollution related health costs.

Why is Carpooling Green?

 New Zealand has this great image of been a green country. Unfortunately, we know that it’s not as ideal as we would like. Easy As Carpooling wants to do something and be a active in the environment protection. By sharing your ride with other people, you would preserve your beautiful country too. Carpooling is the perfect solution to reduce your carbon footprint, carbon-emissions, traffic congestion and air pollution.

What about safety?

 Not only is travelling in groups generically safer than on your own, but with options like Driver and Passenger rating system, mobile and email verifications as well as ladies only rides, if you prefer to travel only with women, carpooling is safer than it was last time you checked.
One of the best things about ridesharing is that it literally reduces the number of cars on the road. And when there's less congestion, commuters there's typically less driving stress, less time spent behind the wheel, and less risk of accidents.

What is Ladies Only rides?

How does it works?

Our website allows many users to travel from one city to another, reducing their travel costs by sharing the road with others. Either you are the driver or you are sitting in the passenger seat. But traveling by carpooling means to take the road with people we do not know and it is not always reassuring. And while society does its best to ensure maximum safety, some women do not feel comfortable. Especially during a first carpool. On easyascarpooling.com we can now find an option called "Ladies Only", which allows you to take part in a trip 100% female.

If you are looking for a route, it is possible to filter ads to find only offers offered by female drivers. If you are the one behind the wheel, you must select "Ladies Only" when your ad is published and voila. A good idea to convince some hesitant.

Booking Fee

What is it?

 “Booking Fee” means the applicable fees or other relevant amount for the Cancellation Service.
