How do we split the cost when I find fellow travellers ?
-- ShareMyFare helps you find and connect with other fellow travellers on the same route. It is up to you to talk to other members and align on how you will split the costs on a fair basis. That is a conversation between adults. ShareMyFare is not involved in cost or fare sharing discussions between you and other members.
What happens if my fellow travellers break the deal ?
-- ShareMyFare helps you find and connect with other fellow travellers. The rest is an adult-deal between you and them. In a future release, we will provide the option of rating your travellers after the journey so you can help future fellow travellers make better choices.
What happens if I cancel my journey ?
-- ShareMyFare helps you find and connect with other fellow travellers. Travel plans may always change. We suggest you inform your ShareMyFare fellows as soon as you know your travel plan changes to avoid nasty surprises for others.
How do I meet with ShareMyFare fellows at the airport ?
-- ShareMyFare helps you find and connect with other fellow travellers. From that point on we suggest you use ShareMyFare’s messaging system to talk with them for the best time and place to meet.
What happens if noone responds to my group ?
– You will travel alone :)
Will others know my name and personal details ?
-- ShareMyFare helps you find and connect with other fellow travellers and shares only the information you share in your profile. They will know you with your username. You have the option to connect to others only using ShareMyFare’s internal messaging system and not share any e-mail or so. This is your choice. Others will know about you only as much as YOU tell them. No different than how much you would be sharing with the person sitting next to you in a flight. We will NOT share your personal details with anyone without your consent.
Is using ShareMyFare safe ?
-- ShareMyFare helps you find and connect with other fellow travellers to share the cost of a taxi or rental car or other travel incidentals that you may agree to when you communicate with the fellow travellers you find. So from the cost point of view, there is no binding contract other than an adult deal. From the personal safety point of view, just apply the typical safety precautions you would take when meeting someone offline, at an airport, at a bus stop to share your taxi. When meeting at an airport. if you have any concerns about safety just communicate that to someone and ask for help. Or you always have the option to walk away from your fellow travellers when you meet them at the airport or some other public place.
How does the search work ?
- -We have implemented an advanced route-matching algorithm that aims to find for you the fellow travelers on the same route as you. Typically, we will search for people who have the same date and time as your departure. Here, you can specify a time-range that fits your schedule. For instance, you would like to travel from one city to another for vacation. While you plan to leave at 10:00am, you might be OK to leave between 10:00 and 2:00 pm. Then you could set the time range as 4 hours to increase your chances to find someone on the same route to share the fare with you.
