Like a rental car, but way better

No reservations required. No long lines. No refueling. No worries.

Grab any available car

Here’s the deal: while you can take a car2go anywhere, the Home Area is where the car2go lives. Think of it as our operating area.

Point A, meet Point B

You can hop in a car whenever, wherever (with no reservations required) and leave it in the Home Area - no need to return it where you grabbed it from.

Make a stopover

If you’re running in the store for an errand or if you're outside of the Home Area, simply put the car in park, select 'stopover' from the in-car screen and take the key with you (just remember, charges will continue to accrue).

Park and go

Where you go in between starting and stopping is your adventure - just be sure that your little car friend returns home safely and ready for the next journey. Done with your trip? Park in a legal spot and go.

Our rates include:


Park in any approved legal spot and the cost is on us.


Don't have car insurance? No problem. Insurance is always included in the price.


Running errands and road trips just got cheaper. Never pay for gas: there's no need to refuel when you're done with a car.
