Expanding on their collaboration, Lidl Ireland and GoCar, the biggest car and van sharing business in Ireland, have installed a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) vehicle at their Cortober store in North Roscommon.

The Roscommon vehicle is one of a fleet of one hundred pay-as-you-go (PAYG) vehicles available for rent at fifty Lidl locations in Ireland. The pay-as-you-go cars are designed to provide customers with dependable and convenient transportation, making weekly grocery shopping even easier.
According to Lidl, the new GoCar service also makes low-cost, contract-free pay-as-you-go car rentals available locally for the benefit of the larger community, especially in places where there is a low rate of automobile ownership.

GoCar vans and vehicles can accommodate customers’ lifestyles without requiring a commitment, from day trips with friends or family to lightening the burden of the weekly Lidl shop, transferring heavy things purchased from Lidl’s middle aisle, rushing to meetings, or just having an extra pair of wheels for a busy family. Over 6,000 Lidl consumers have used the GoCar service at Lidl locations in Ireland over the past year, with the most journeys taken each month by customers visiting the East Wall, Shankill, and Tallaght locations in Dublin.

at December 2022, Lidl Ireland and GoCar teamed up to launch a pilot that involved the placement of 20 automobiles over the course of three months at 10 Lidl stores. Lidl Ireland expedited its collaboration with GoCar to supply a fleet of 100 cars across 50 of its Irish shops after the pilot proved to be successful.

Customers in 20 counties—Carlow, Clare, Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo, Tipperary, Waterford, Westmeath, Wexford, and Wicklow—can take advantage of the service, as each participating Lidl store has two GoCars installed.

GoCar, Ireland’s top car-sharing service, and Ireland’s best-value grocery retailer, Lidl, have partnered strategically to offer Lidl customers more store options that promote accessibility.
The retailer’s most recent effort is a compliment to its current service portfolio, which already has OOHPod parcel lockers at Lidl Ireland locations, allowing customers to conveniently pick up their online orders at the same time as their weekly shop. In order to make it easier for containers that qualify for the government’s Deposit Return Scheme to be returned, Lidl Ireland also invested €50 million to equip two reverse vending machines per store.
