            Simply use the car2go app to open the car. Enter your car2go PIN and you’re ready to drive off.

            You can control everything on your smartphone: you see available vehicles on a real time map in the app and you can make a reservation. car2go is always there if you simply need a car

              Refueling your car2go is like so many things with our service: inclusive. However, should the tank be empty or a trip unexpectedly take longer, no problem: you will find a fuelling card in the fixture where the car key is kept. With it, you can refuel at Shell, Esso, Avia gas stations in Germany and with E10 fuel (smart). New Mercedes-Benz models: please mind the descriptions in the app and on the tank cap- some cars must be refueled with diesel fuel, whereas some must be fueled with Super E10 or ROZ95.

              When the tank level is less than 25%, you’ll get 4 € car2go credit2, when you refuel the car completely.

                Golden rules of carsharing

                Like your car2go clean and undamaged? Yup, same here. Sharing is caring. A big part of the car2go experience is about the consideration members show each other. For carsharing to work, we've put together a few "golden rules" that'll keep all of us happy. Basically: Don't be that person :)

                Don't drink & drive

                Drunk driving is never OK. Just because you're in a car2go doesn't mean the police won't see you. Enjoy the party, but choose a designated driver so you'll all arrive safely at your destination.

                No smoking

                Enjoy your cigarette break at your destination. Not everyone is a smoker and it takes forever to get the smell out and, well – just don't be that person.

                Don't trash the car

                Tissues in the front seat? Hairs? Potato chips and ketchup stains? Don't be that person! Trash is the one thing we're not proud to share.

                Park nicely

                Don't be that person who parks like his grandfather owns the street. Don't leave the car on private property or in illegal parking zones.

                Hassle-free parking?

                Parking? It’s on us.


                With car2go parking is easy: Within the home area you can park the car2go – usually – at all public parking areas that are free of charge as well as at publicly-managed parking areas as long as there is neither a yellow line nor a no-parking zone.

                You can park almost anywhere in Berlin. But where can you end your trip or make a stopover? Get the full picture on parking in Berlin.

                  Did you know? The Berlin Home Area has many parking spaces including designated carsharing parking spaces at the airport.

                  There are some parking lots which can be used for only in certain periods (e.g. on weekdays from 9-12 am) where otherwise parking zones apply. In such spaces the cars can be parked up to 48 hours prior to entering the time boundary. In areas that are exclusively designated as residents’ parking zones, the cars cannot be parked. In so called mixed zones parking is allowed.

                    Any questions?

                    Answers to all your questions about carsharing in Berlin you’ll find in the FAQs.

                    DRIVING YOUR CAR2GO

                    Here you can learn more about how to use car2go:

                    1. Your driver's license must have been valid for at least 1 year. If you go to a validation point, you'll be asked to present your driver's license and a valid photo ID. We accept driver’s licenses issued in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). We also accept non-EU and -EEA driver's licenses but these are valid for 6 months only from first entry in Germany. For validation, your driver's license must be accompanied by a certified translation (or an International Driver's Permit), a passport, proof of residency in Germany, and proof of date of entry into Germany (e.g. boarding pass, entry visa, proof of residence).

                    2. car2go credit will be applied automatically to trips charged on your default payment profile.
