Rent Or Share A Car Just By Texting

Rent Or Share A Car Just By Texting

Vehicle sharing program manages the whole process through SMS.

Yi Chen


Leading mobile commerce company Netsize has launched a peer-to-peer car sharing social network in France that allows users to rent a car simply by sending a text message. CityzenCar is the SMS-based service that simplifies the car rental process for consumers and enables 12,000 members in 2,000 French cities to conveniently book a vehicle with their handset.

Car owners receive rental notifications via SMS and if they approve it, the driver will receive a text message back with information on the car and location. The car owner can choose to deliver the keys to the driver in person, or authorize a CityzenCar personnel to unlock the doors.

Nicolas le Douarec, CEO of CityzenCar explains that:

We wanted to make it as easy as possible for our customers to interact with each other and make the best use of our service. Netsize’s flexible and highly dependable SMS solution is crucial to ensure the quality of our service.
