    I love travelling so you can imagine my disappointment when I know that my local train station would be closed for five months. Unfortunately I do not have a car but I realized that I could start carpooling.

    Carpooling is the sharing of car journeys so that more than one person travels in a car. As a result, carpooling can be a cheaper choice than public transport because everyone in the car shares the cost of petrol (汽油). I recently did carpooling for the first time and it was very easy to find a driver. I used a website which lists drivers’ descriptions and found someone who was going to the same place as me. The descriptions provided a lot of information such as the driver’s first name, age and gender as well as reviews form previous (以前的)passengers. I decided to travel with a lady who had very good reviews. I paid for my share of the petrol through the website and planned to meet her in the town center.

    It may seem quite dangerous to travel with strangers but there are some safety actions. Firstly, the driver cannot receive your money until you text him or her a code (密码) at the end of your journey. This means that if you are unsatisfied with your trip, the driver will not be paid. Secondly, it is important to read quite a number of the drivers’ descriptions and reviews when you choose a driver. Lastly, I would suggest travelling with a friend so that you will feel safer and less lonely.

    I had a very good experience of carpooling. Not only was the trip very cheap, but the driver and the other passengers were really friendly. They were all French so I had the chance to practice speaking some French. As train and petrol prices are rising, both drivers and passengers can benefit from this cheaper form of travel. More importantly,, carpooling provides a fantastic opportunity to meet interesting people on your travels.
