Short-term car rental goes by the name of carsharing. It is a great solution for those who doesn't need a car every single day or who drives less than 10 000 yearly. Carsharing advocates are confident that swapping personal cars with shared ones will help to reduce traffic hams, lack of parking spots and air pollution.
