Spread the love

Whether for a birthday, baby shower or just to get away for a hot minute, our family is one that welcomes an impromptu road trip or two.  We embrace having fun, new experiences that help us create lasting memories as a family. There are times when these family road trips require a vehicle that has more room than our current vehicles, which would make longer road trips, especially when our moms are tagging along a lot more comfortable. This is where the new car sharing app, Maven comes into play.

Maven CAr Sharing App

Maven is a General Motors (GM) on-demand car sharing brand that offers a seamless car sharing experience straight from your phone. All you have to do is download the Maven app, which is available on iOS and Android, fill out a simple questionnaire and you will be on your way to cruising with your family in the latest GM vehicles from a Chevy Cruze to a Cadillac Escalade while listening to your favorite tunes on SiriusXM Radio. Vehicles are also equipped with 4G LTE WiFi™ which is a must for a blogging mamma like me; we always have to stay connected.

Using the car sharing app is pretty simple. Vehicles are populated on the app based on your current location. When you find the car that suits your needs and style, you use the Maven app to reserve your vehicle. Did I mention that everything is done on your phone? I mean everything!

The Maven app was created with convenience in mind. Your phone not only allows you to use the app to locate and reserve a vehicle, but it also serves as the key to unlock and lock your reserved car as well as start it. Cool, right?

You are probably wondering what using a car sharing app of Maven’s caliber is going to cost you, right? Unlike other car sharing services where you have to upfront an annual or monthly fee, the app does not have one. Starting at $8 an hour (up to 180 miles per day), car reservations are affordable, too. And, you get free gas and car insurance.
