If you are a Karshare renter, you are already a good driver. However, there are times where even the best of us make mistakes. 

Usually, we will not know if we have been fined or charged by an authority until after the fact. This means that it is usually reported to us by the Owners of the cars.

When they report these to us, we simply match the time of the incident to the time of bookings and can determine if it was you or the Owner who was at fault. 


Speeding tickets

If you are caught speeding, you may need to pay a fine and take some penalty points on your licence.


Penalty Charge Notices

PCNs must be reported by the Owners promptly.

In order to ensure the charges do not increase we will pay the fine and then charge the amount back to your card for the PCN. 


Private Parking Fines

As well as local authority parking charges (covered by PCN), you could also be fined for parking illegally in a privately operated car park.

In order to ensure the charges do not increase we will pay the fine and then charge the amount back to your card for the PCN.


Congestion Charge (London only)

The Congestion Charge is an £15 daily charge for driving a vehicle within the charging zone between 07:00 and 22:00, every day except Christmas Day.

If you don't pay the congestion charge and you enter a congestion charging zone you could get a fine. 

More information can be found here.


ULEZ Charges and Clean Air Policies

London has a ULEZ Charge which has expanded it's area and applies at all hours of every day except Christmas Day. The charge is £12.50 and must be paid before entering the charging zone.

If you don't pay the ULEZ charge and you enter a ULEZ charging zone, you could get a fine. More information can be found here.

Other cities are also introducing their own clean air policies including Birmingham and Bath. More information can be found here.
