It’s often the cheapest way to get around if you’re not planning too far ahead – a typical rate is €5 per 100kms (62mi).
Average prices from Munich to cities including Berlin and Cologne range from €25 to €30.
Routes vary from short inter-Deutschland hops and into neighbouring countries to trips right across Europe.
• The biggest site is www.blablacar.de (formerly www.mitfahrgelegenheit.de). It has more than one million registered users.
