If you've had any experience with car-sharing before, you'll be familiar with map constraints. Each provider calls it something slightly different, but at SHARE NOW we're talking about the Home Area. This border, that surrounds the city limits, acts as an operational zone for our free-floating cars. It's where you'll find all available cars to rent as well as where you can drop them off. However, there are ways to break free from this zone. Here's how to think outside the Home Area and unlock the true potential of car-sharing.
Home Areas are a natural and necessary part of the free-floating car-sharing model. Unlike traditional car rental services, which have fixed rental stations for pick-up and drop-off, the free-floating approach gives drivers the chance to jump in a car (almost) anywhere. Naturally, operating a free-floating car-sharing service across an entire country would be impossible, and thus the concept of a Home Area was born. That said, it's important not to think of these borders as driving boundaries - not at all!
The borders you see on the map are only for starting and ending your trip – where you go in between is completely up to you! Drive across Storebæltsbroen and enjoy a weekend at Vestkysten, go for a day trip to Southern Zealand, or drive across Øresundsbroen to Malmø and spend some time off. Venturing outside of the urban area to explore is both easy and budget friendly through hourly rates, daily rates and special offers.
When you've finished your adventure outside of the Home Area, drive back to end your trip. It doesn't matter where you started your trip – you can end your trip anywhere within the Home Area simply by using the app. Clean up, take your belongings with you, and make sure to follow our parking rules.
All our available cars are parked within the Home Area and can be found via the app. Think of it as the home of our cars. It's where you start and end all trips. When you're ready to end a trip, you can park for free in all public parking spots¹ within the Home Area, but you also have other options. Here's where you can park with SHARE NOW:
Usually, private parking spaces are off-limits for SHARE NOW cars – but to give you more options, we’ve made sure that you can park in a number of private parking spaces. Private parking areas are marked with a black sign with white text.
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. Outside the Home Area, parking costs are on you.
You choose exactly the rate you want in the app before each trip.
Just like fueling and charging, it's all included — no extra charge!
