Why Oscar?

Security and verification

Oscar is serious about security and safety. Oscar verifies all members of Oscar’s community to ensure appropriate use of the platform. Oscar has also put measures in place to keep your details anonymous. The location of your car spot is not provided until a member books and pays for the spot with their verified credit card. All payments are processed securely through Stripe, and all information is secure.

Flexibility

Oscar is all about flexibility. You don’t need a permanently vacant spot to share with Oscar (we’re not just another classified ads app for parking). List your spot once with Oscar, and then simply ‘check out’ instantly through the app when you’re not using it to make it available for bookings. For as little as an hour when you’ve driven out, or longer term if your spot is always vacant, Oscar will connect you to drivers who are looking for parking

Community manager

Oscar is here to help. Oscar ensures the entire process from listing a spot to booking a spot is as easy and seamless as possible for everyone. Simply list your spot and allow Oscar to manage it for you. Bookings are accepted automatically, and there’s no need to meet guests or exchange keys. Encountered an issue? Oscar will help resolve it for you ASAP. 

 

Some common questions

Does it cost anything to list on Oscar?
Listing your spot on Share with Oscar is completely free. Oscar will only take a small fee for successful transactions made through the app. l5% of the transaction will be kept by Oscar to enable the ongoing running of the app.

Do I need to accept each booking request?
Oscar is about live and on-demand bookings. All users of the app have been verified and therefore bookings are pre-authorised and accepted automatically. This is to ensure you as a spot owner can maximise your earnings by not missing a booking, as well as provide a fast and on-demand experience for drivers looking for parking on the spot.

What if a driver overstays?
Drivers are penalised for overstaying their booking, and you will be reimbursed for the inconvenience. In those exceptional circumstances, Oscar will help to arrange towing of an overstayed vehicle.

Can I list my lock up garage with Oscar?
Yes you can as long as the garage can be accessed by a driver without the need for you to personally hand them a key. You may leave your garage door unlocked, alternatively, you may leave a key in a lock box. This ensures quick and easy access for drivers to park, and means that you don’t need to be there for the exchange and return of the key as it will be a bit inconvenient for all. 

Can I list my car space which has a security key (fob key)?
Not yet. Unless you will be available to open the door each time a driver books your spot and needs to leave the spot. Oscar is hard at work developing a technology solution to this, so watch this space!
