What if your company car was as simple as your Spotify subscription? You pay a monthly fee, with no hidden costs, you can cancel monthly, and when you feel like using Spotify again, you just newly subscribe. Simple as that.

Most of us associate business cars and corporate fleets with high costs, contracts you cannot get out of, a cumbersome reservation system that's stuck in the 20th century, and a bottomless pit when the Skoda Octavia has already been standing around for over a month.

But how can car subscriptions solve these problems? Well, in a car subscriptions for companies everything is included. In other words, as a company, you pay a monthly rate that covers all costs except for fuel. Who benefits from this? The accounting department, since it only has to handle a single cost position, the finance manager, who can claim the costs for tax purposes, as well as saving on maintenance and personnel. The operations department also has the possibility of car subscriptions to provide a car seasonally or to employees in the probationary period without exploding budget costs. Not to forget the HR department, which can attract talents with car subscriptions or support employees with long public transport journeys by means of automobility. However, the advantages are not only apparent for large companies and SMEs. Startups or single companies with small capital can also afford automobility since the car subscription does not require a down payment. Moreover, your long-term rental car will be ready within 7 days in case your business needs cars quickly.

Does it sound too good to be true? Then read on and see for yourself.

Drive smartly and save costs

In the business sector, long-term car rental is a favorable alternative solution to owning a fleet of vehicles or a single company car. Here, long-term car rental helps bridge a period when more company cars are needed. For example: If you go back to the beginning of the pandemic, many people chose to drive to work. On the corporate side, many logistics companies suddenly needed more vehicles. CARIFY's car subscriptions were ready for our customers within 7 days. A pandemic is of course an exception, but also major contracts or a rapid growth of staff in a startup need cars that are quickly and flexibly available. In addition, it is still important to note that the car can be redeemed on the company or on you personally. Especially for expats this can be a practical mobility solution if the residence in Switzerland has not been registered yet.

The essence of the story: car subscriptions can support existing vehicle fleets or provide companies with automobility in the form of a subscription, depending on economic changes. Even after the subscription expires, you as a business don't have to worry about hidden additional costs, as the monthly payment includes insurance, registration, repairs, and taxes.
