      With the car2go app you can easily find and reserve any available vehicle.

      Find your nearest car2go around you with our app. Reserve your car2go up to 30 minutes in advance with our app. The car2go radar will send you an alert as soon as a car2go is available near you.

        Reserve your car2go with the app up to 20 minutes before departure. If a car is not immediately available – just activate the radar feature in the app. The car2go radar notifies you as soon as a car is available in your area.

            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 all Shell stations in Germany only 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 10 free minutes**** when you refuel the car completely.

              These free minutes are valid for 30 days from the moment of credit and can, like all your free minutes, be found in your “myAccount” under "Free minutes”.

                Driving car2go is easy!

                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.

                A detailed list of all current parking rules in your city, in case you would like to do a stopover or end the rental you will find here.

                  Did you know? The home area of Rhineland has many parking spaces including designated 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 left?
