Driving home for Christmas…


“Driving home for Christmas, I can’t wait to see those faces”. It’s official. It’s Monday 3rd of December and Christmas has begun at Liftshare HQ (although, we admit, the Christmas lights have been hung since the local Christmas lights were switched on in November, complete with Laura’s rendition of ‘Silent Night’).

And with Christmas, comes the never-ending expenditure list of: Christmas presents, parties, food shopping and travelling to see relatives. That’s where we want to come in, to make the festive period even better, sprinkling the magic of Liftshare, if you will.

You see, if you add your journey home for Christmas or your trip to see relatives over the festive season, we can help you to HALVE your travel costs, if not more. Don’t believe us? You can calculate your savings using our savings calculator.


Is money-talk the antipode of the spirit of Christmas for you? Well, just think of the festive good-deed you could be doing by offering an empty seat in your car to someone who would otherwise have to battle with Christmas train closures and bad weather.

If you were planning on travelling by train, make sure you take a look at all the closures and rail-works, here. Why not see if a driver’s going your way by searching your journey, and enjoy a more pleasant ride home? You may even partake in some festive carpool karaoke!

“Top to toe in tailbacks, oh, I got red lights all around me, I’m driving home Christmas, yea”… Importantly, by sharing your journey you’ll be helping to remove cars from the road (for example, if two drivers travel in one car), reducing the amount of congestion on Britain’s roads!


Travel Happy!
