'SnappCar' is a Dutch car-sharing service that puts a distinctly European twist on the ride-sharing model pioneered by companies such as Uber.

SnappCar is a unique car-sharing service that is meant for dense ares where consumers are unlikely to own their own vehicle. Instead of hitching a ride from a stranger, the service is designed so that those in need of a vehicle can simply borrow their neighbor's car. The user simply types in their location and SnappCar will show which cars are available nearby. The owner of the car can then choose to accept or decline the request for their vehicle.

With the option to rent nearly any kind of vehicle for prices ranging from $11 to $560, SnappCar gives consumers a new way to tap into the sharing economy.
