easyCar Pool is operated by Lowcost Vehicle Rental (UK) Limited (trading as easyCar), with company registration number 03816836 and its registered address at 3rd Floor Rear, Satila House, 109-111 Farringdon Road, London, EC1R 3BW ("easyCar"/"we"/"our"/"us")
easyCar Pool connects drivers travelling on a publicised route with passengers who are seeking to travel on some or all of the same route in order to enable them to share the journey and, if they agree to do so, some of the associated costs. We do this by providing an online platform that provides a way to organise bookings and payments (our "Services"). The online platform is available via the easyCar website (and its sub-domains, together the "Site").
By registering as a user of the Services, via the Site, you agree to comply with and be legally bound by these terms and conditions of service ("Terms").
The Services provided through the Site allow Drivers (as defined below) to create a listing for one or more Journeys and allow Passengers (as defined below) to find out information about what Journeys are available to share and to make a booking directly with Drivers.
easyCar acts as a broker to facilitate the sharing of Journeys (as defined below) by Drivers with Passengers. easyCar provides a way to organise bookings and payments for these arrangements. easyCar does not provide taxi or private driver services and, unless otherwise expressly stated, easyCar does not own or maintain any vehicles for this purpose. The contract for the sharing of the Journey is between the Driver and the Passenger. easyCar is not a party to that contract or responsible in any way for its performance or non-performance.

Driver may elect to propose the price per seat per mile for the Journey suggested by easyCar or vary the price within parameters set by easyCar as set out below and on the Site. As a Driver you acknowledge that it is not permitted to profit from using the Site and that payments from Passengers are intended only to cover a reasonable share of the costs of a Journey. Failure to comply with this restriction may result in your insurance policy becoming invalid or void (and easyCar expressly disclaims any liability for such an occurrence as a result of use of the Site in contravention of these Terms in general and this clause 3.3 in particular).
