Save money and get into the Olympic Games spirit by sharing your car!

The long awaited Olympic Games are finally upon us! The international event, which will host athletes and supporters from 205 different nations will be a spectacle for attendees throughout the UK.
A melting pot of international guests, all in high spirits, will provide an electric atmosphere. Research conducted by Forward Data shows London should anticipate a 13 percent year on year increase in international tourists arriving in late July and early August 1. As international visitors arrive and Brits delay their holidays to make the most of the Olympic atmosphere, experts are anticipating transport issues to arise. This coupled with threats of train and border control strikes makes for a challenge to reach the 4 yearly event.
Carpooling provides a great opportunity to reduce the cost of traveling to one of the many venues throughout the UK. A number of park and ride car parks have been set up which means visitors can travel to conveniently located car parks to make the last part of the journey by public transport.
Are you traveling to the Games this summer? If so, have you considered reducing the cost of traveling and parking by advertising your empty seats on carpooling.co.uk? By adding a lift or booking your seat in someone else’s car as an alternative to over-crowded or canceled public transport. By offering your seat in a car it allows you to contribute to reduce congestion on the road, while also meeting new people and getting into the Olympic mood while traveling together.
