SnappCar takes over German car sharing platform tamyca
Dutch peer-to-peer car sharing platform SnappCar has taken over tamyca, its largest German equivalent. The start-up from Utrecht now has 400.000 users in the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and Germany and is currently one of the largest peer-to-peer car sharing platforms in Europe. The company strives to reduce the number of cars in Europe by 5 million in 2022 in order to improve quality of life as well as reduce the amount of CO2 emission. SnappCar is backed by Europcar, Autobinck Group, and the Danish start-up studio Founders.
A flawless experience for former tamyca users is SnappCar’s top priority. Victor van Tol, CEO of SnappCar, says, “tamyca always had a good reputation in Germany. We want to continue offering German users an impeccable service. This demands a meticulous integration of our ICT systems. Additionally, we have invested in a team in Berlin that will provide our users with the very best service.”
