We share our experience and talk about how it is abroad, how it works. There are different companies, but we took a local German operator, which is quite popular in Frankfurt am Main, namely: Book-n-drive
This company operates not only in one city, but according to the logic of providing the service of a car sharing, each city is a separate unit for work.
Does Kiev remind you?
Frankfurt on the Main is represented by a large area of use of the car sharing, as well as a drop off zone that covers the center of the city in its entirety and there are several more small zones on the periphery of the city.
There are pluses and minuses, if to compare with the Kiev service.
The service is presented by cars Volkswagen UP. If you want other cars, they are also available.
Open / close the car
You can open or close the car either with your smartphone or in another way. This is caused more by an older platform. So, many cars are opened only with the help of a club card, which you need to have with you and attach to the glass.
Features of the car sharing drop off
The peculiarity and difference from the Kiev GetmanCar is that you can complete the car sharing only in this way:
I still do not understand
If I take the car out of the zone, and drive it to the zone, I also get 3 euros, although I do a positive service to the company. But in this case, the company will compensate 3 euros only on a call to the operator, which is not entirely convenient. Do not call the operator - you will not get 3 euros back.
Tariffs and tariff plans
There are various tariffs, which can happen both without a monthly fee and with it. Those that have a constant subscription fee have cheaper rates.
Why do I use car sharing in Germany
Thank you for your attention, good trips.
