Just hop in
Always available, just round the corner
Right down the street
You can take any of the car2go vehicles you find distributed around you, or you can reserve an available vehicle 30 minutes before you want to drive. That way, you can get to your destination faster. Once you reach your destination, you can either end your trip in accordance with your city’s Parking Rules, or you can keep it if you want to drive further. There has never been such a flexible way to get from point A to point B!
The easy way to get going
Always start in the lead
Trips can be started using the mobile app. Watch this video for detailed instructions. Once inside, enter your PIN, answer the questions on the screen and off you go.
Stop as often as you like
Stopover and over and over
You can make stopovers at any time by leaving the car2go in use, taking the key, and locking the door. To make a stopover, simply use the remote access on the key to lock and unlock the vehicle, just as you would a personal car. This keeps your trip active so the vehicle will not be rented by another car2go member while you’re away. Trip time will continue to accumulate during a stopover.
Saying goodbye is easy
See you around!
You can use a car2go for as long as you like – but in the end you have to return it to the home area and end your trip in approved parking. Please make sure to review your city’s Parking Rules and FAQ before making a trip. To finish the trip and simply return the keys to the holder, follow the instructions on the touchscreen, and securely close all doors and windows. The windshield display unit will count down from 15 to zero. After 15 seconds, the vehicle will completely lock and end your trip. It's that easy! Click here to watch the "How To End a Trip" video.

Spick and span?

Tons of room!
car2go has plenty of room for your gear. Here’s how you open the tailgate: press the button in the recess on the tailgate. This opens up the rear window. Pull the window up and release the tabs on the right and left side of the tailgate. It’s now ready for loading. To close the tailgate, reverse these steps. Make sure you hear the levers lock into place.
Off to a flying start.
Ready, steady, go!
You’ve entered your PIN? You’ve rated the car for cleanness and agreed to the questions on the screen? Then reach for the ignition key by the touchscreen. Now step on the brake pedal, stick the key into the ignition (next to the gearshift), turn it clockwise and the engine will start. And off you go!
If it’s a car2go electric drive, wait until the performance indicator above the steering wheel has reached its full scale.
Automatic gear comfort.
The car2go’s automatic gear mode is the easy way to drive and can save on fuel. You can, of course, choose to drive in manual, but the default is automatic. The car2go electric drive vehicles only have automatic transmission.
The big finish.
