SIMPLY SAVING MONEY, THIS IS HOW TO DO IT WITH PLEASURE

Door Hanne Meijers - 13 December 2017

Simply saving money, who wouldn’t want that? We’re happy to help you do that with the help of a simple three-step plan:

  1. Download the Toogethr app
  2. Sign up with your business e-mail address
  3. Fill out your name and working hours

We’ll do the rest. That’s how simple it is.

Okay, fair’s fair – sometimes there’s a fourth step. Doesn’t your employer have a Toogethr community yet? Then ask your manager to contact us. Because you and your employer can save a lot of money! Let’s talk, for example, about you individual savings…

How much can you save?

Many people riding to work by car do so by themselves. This means three empty seats and four people (and cars!) on the road making the same unnecessary costs during each ride.

The Dutch travel some 12,000 km a year on average domestically. Almost 40% of our daily kilometres consist of commuter traffic; no less than forty percent. This is a cost factor of 4,800 kilometres, if you indeed ride the average amount of kilometres. Taking into account a kilometric allowance of 0.19 eurocent per km, this means we’re talking here about savings to be made of over €900 a year! But those could be even higher because you save on multiple cost factors:

 

  • On fuel
  • On maintainance
    Each kilometre not driven, ensures less wear and tear and thus less maintenance costs.
  • On car insurance
    Some insurers give you a cheaper rate when you ride few kilometres.

Worst case scenario: a good conversation

Riding together with colleagues is a fun way to start your workday. You get to know (new) people and all the irritations on the road are suddenly less disturbing. A trouble shared, is a trouble halve, right?

The number of passenger cars has sharply risen in 25 years time: from over five million to nearly eight million, an increase of over 50 percent. On the one hand this means more traffic jams,  something we are trying to fight with Toogethr. On the other hand it’s not actually about car ownership. It’s about how many cars are on the road at the same time. The likelihood of finding a colleague to ride with has increased because of this. Riding together effortlessly is possible with the Toogethr app.

What’s the worst that can happen, save money and a good conversation? We’d take that risk any day! ?

Toogethr is a ridesharing app which is already used by many organisations. Read how we can help you make a difference.
