The main business idea is to rent a car for people who can engage in this activity by registering through an app. They can then determine the price at which they will rent their car, the days they can rent, and so on. At the same time both parties, the lessee and the lessor are bound to adhere to strict lease conditions. In particular, citizens who own a car, but do not use it to a large extent, are involved in this process. It is the first Slovak company to carsharing cars. Interestingly, 65% of the rent is paid to the car owner, 20% of the price goes to the company, 10% is for accident insurance and 5% is used for administrative charges. It is an easy way for a citizen to increase his income by renting a vehicle that he does not need every day to use. In case of interest in the use of a particular vehicle, the user uses the application to enter into a lease, through the application pays the lessor for the car and according to it the vehicle will pick up and, after use, will return it to the lessor. The activities of this company have a positive impact on the environment in particular, because car rental reduces the number of consumers buying a new motor vehicle, leading to a more rational use of resources and reducing negative impacts.
