From Cologne cathedral to Belgian quarter — you’ve never done car rental like this before. With car-sharing, there's no need to buy or lease a car. It's just like having your own car in Cologne. Just pick up any of our cars parked near your favourite hipster café in the Belgian quarter and drop it off anywhere in the Home Area when you're done. How does it work?
We don't do rental stations! Our cars are available 24/7 and free-float all around the Home Area. Use the SHARE NOW app to find an available car near you. Reserve the car to make it yours — and start walking over!
Once you're at the car, unlock it with a push of a button in the SHARE NOW app. Choose a minute, hourly, or daily rate that meets your needs — then start your trip! You can drive outside the Home Area and any fueling costs are on us.
We have well over 1,200+ cars in Cologne. Choose from thousands of iconic and premium cars free-floating all around the city. From boardroom to bar, there's a car for every occasion. Whether you need a car for a few minutes, hours, or days, simply choose the best rate for you in the app before each trip.²
Within the Home Area, you’re home free. Think of it as our operative zone, in which our SHARE NOW cars free-float around the city and public street parking is always free. Here's where you can park SHARE NOW cars in Cologne:
Public street parking is always for free within the Home Area. And we have dedicated car-sharing parking spots all over town. Simply look for "P" signs in the app.
From shopping outlets to popular neighbourhoods, we have convenient drop off zones in areas just outside Cologne where you can park and end your trip. A drop off fee will apply.
You can leave the Home Area for as long as you like – as long as you bring the car back to end your trip. To park and stopover, simply lock the car without ending your trip.
Public street parking in Dusseldorf is also always for free. For a low intercity fee of 4,99 €, you can even end your trip in your neighbouring city and leave the car there!
We're available at the Cologne-Bonn airport! There are dedicated car-sharing parking spots at the airport where you can find and drop off our cars. An airport fee will apply.
