Fueling & Charging

Do I need to refuel or charge SHARE NOW cars after each trip?

No. We don't expect you to refuel or charge our cars when you're done. However, if you do, the cost of fuel is covered by us and we'll even give you SHARE NOW credit as a thank you!

What are partner fuel stations?

You don't have to refuel our cars, but if you do, the cost is on us. Fuelling your SHARE NOW car is free – as long as you do so at a partner fuel station. Simply check the app for all partner fuel stations in your area. We provide a prepaid fuel card in each of our cars, which you can use at the following petrol stations:

Austria
BP, Avanti, OMV, Agip.

Denmark
Circle K

Germany
Shell, Esso, Avia (Shell fuel card)
Aral, Total (Total fuel card)

Hungary

In Denmark and Hungary, if you fuel your car at a non-partner fuel station, you have to pay for it yourself. In other countries, if you fuel your car at a non-partner fuel station, you have to pay for it yourself and send the original receipt to us. A processing fee will then apply.

How do I refuel SHARE NOW cars?

You don't have to refuel our cars, but if you choose to, the cost is on us and we'll even give you credit for it!

Here's how to refuel our cars:

  1. Go to a partner petrol station.
  2. Look for the prepaid fuel card in the key card holder (in the glove compartment).
  3. The PIN for the fuel card will be displayed in the app
  4. Determine the correct fuel type by checking inside the car's fuel tank door.
  5. Enter the fuel card PIN at the gas station terminal.
  6. Fuel up and keep the receipt.

How do I charge an electric car?

Charging an electric car is fun and – dare we say – addictive:

  1. Find a charging station near you using the app.
  2. You'll find a charging card in the glove compartment.
  3. Use the card to activate the charging station.
  4. You'll find the charging cable in the car's trunk.
  5. Plug the cable into the car first, and then into the station.

Hint: Each time you fully charge a car that has less than 50% battery level, you earn 4 € of credit. This will be used to pay for your trips and trip-related costs.

How can I earn SHARE NOW credit?

Credit is an easy and flexible way for you to earn as you go. It's our way of thanking you when you care for our cars. Here's how you can earn credit:

✓ Fully refuel a car with less than 40% of fuel – 5€ of credit
✓ Charge an electric car with less than 60% of battery –  5€ of credit

You can always check your credit balance and expiry date in the app.
