Sharing, a matter of confidence and trust

It’s Friday the 13th, 2 in the afternoon, Paris, at Porte d’Orléans. Lilian waits for the three people who will share his trip to Saint-Etienne. He knows what they look like, their BlaBlaCar member profiles and their first names: Stéphanie, Mérah and Simon. Protecting what matters

Part 2: On the road

Lilian gets behind the wheel, Stephanie sits next to him. Let’s get started!

As the journey starts, they share their BlaBlaCar experience.

All of them are in a good mood. Lilian is a BlaBlaCar Ambassador who knows how to make his passengers feel comfortable.

Part 3: Breakdown and repairs

On the road to Saint-Étienne, a loud alarm goes off in the car. Apparently the pressure in one of the tires is slow. Lilian stops at the first parking area.

False alarm! After checking the tires at the air pump, they can go on.

Lilian, Stéphanie, Mérah and Simon are now reassured and can head on towards the south.
