[Table 7: https://prtimes.jp/data/corp/8705/table/669_3_59e17a4061b507f2140c11f219e234df.jpg] When we asked people who had experience on a drive date why they thought it was good, the most common response (72%) was that it was “easy to get to the destination,” followed by “enjoyable conversation” at 53%, and “it’s a space just for the two of us.” 47% said, “I can enjoy it.”
Many people seem to be attracted to dates by car because of the comfort of transportation and the private space inside the car.

By age group, about 40% of those with experience are in their 50s. People in their 50s had the highest percentage of respondents who had experience on a drive date. The term “date car” became popular in the 1980s and 1990s, probably due to the popularity of date cars among young people at the time.

In this survey, we found that more than 80% had experience on a drive date, and more than one in two people under 30 had used a rental car or car share for a drive date.
A drive date allows you to easily travel to places that are difficult to reach by public transportation, and you don’t have to worry about the time required for the last train or transfer, so you can enjoy the date at your own pace. Another appeal is that you can have a conversation and spend time in a private space without worrying about your surroundings.
 Times’ car sharing service “Times Car” has stations all over the country, and you can leave and return cars 24 hours a day, so you can choose a place to rent a car depending on your date plans, such as near your home or an outing. Why not consider a drive date using “Times Car”?
