HOW TO SHARE NOW

Take 4 photos before and after your trip!

Always take 4 pictures of the four corners of the car before and after your trip in a way that the license plate of the vehicle is legible on the photographs, and keep these pictures for 90 days. These are proof that any damage to your car occurred before or after your rental.

Pro tip: Store your images in the cloud for easy access - this way it won't take up your phone's memory either.

Do I need to take photos of the car?

Time and mileage included in a package

If you exceed the fixed time or mileage in a package, a different rate for each additional minute and/or kilometer will apply. If mileage runs out, the long distance fee of 109 Ft per additional kilometer will apply, if time runs out, the overtime minute rate (depends on car model) will apply.

Pro tip: you will find the km included in the package in the app when you choose a package.

Are there additional costs if I exceed the time or mileage included in my rate?

Choosing package

Before you start driving, choose the package that suits your needs the best! You can choose from minute-based, hourly and daily packages. You cannot move to another package after starting your trip. If you exceed the time or kilometer limit included in the package, the car will not close automatically, but you will have to pay an extra kilometer or per minute charge.

Pro tip: If you reach the time included in the package within the Home Area, close the rental and start a new one.

What happens if I don't use up all the included time and/or mileage in my selected rate?

Pre-authorization

When you select an hourly or daily package, the bank will check to see if there is coverage on your specified payment instrument (card) to pay the package fee. The amount of pre-authorization is always equal to the fee of the selected package plus its additional Basic Fee. This is not a deposit, the bank will only place a pre-authorization hold on the amount and it will remain in your bank account during the whole time.

Do you place a pre-authorization hold on my credit card before I start a trip?

In case of an accident, the Base Fee includes the CASCO insurance, which automatically reduces your maximum deductible to 300 000 Ft, except in the case of damages due to gross negligence. Besides, before every trip, you can choose the Plus Coverage in the app, which reduces your deductible to 100 000 Ft for the given rental.

Cars with keys

The smart and Fiat models start with a key, and the Peugeot and Mercedes models come with a key but you don't need them to start the engine. You can find the key in the glove compartment, with wich you can start the car or close it when making a stopover. Arrived at your destination? Put the key back in the glove compartment (place the plastic ticket on the key back into the holder so the car senses that the key is in place), then get out and end your trip in the app.

How do I rent cars with car keys?

Keyless cars

The BMW and MINI models are keyless, meaning you don't need a car key to unlock the car when making a stopover or start the engine. These cars use Start/Stop buttons instead.

How do I rent keyless cars?

HOW NOT TO SHARE NOW

DUI

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is strictly forbidden in any case. SHARE NOW is a good idea if you're planning a night out, but please pick another mode of transport to get home if you have previously consumed alcohol.

Do not litter

Love a clean car? So does every SHARE NOW user. SHARE NOW cars are cleaned regularly, so leave the car in a state you'd like to find it. Before you end your trip, give the car a good check under and between the seats. This way you're less likely to leave something behind – and you're doing the next SHARE NOW user a good deed.

Do not park irresponsibly!

You can park SHARE NOW cars for free on any legal public street parking space within the Home Area and in the dedicated SHARE NOW parking lots, in accordance with current parking regulations. Please do not leave the car in private car parks, parking garages or in areas where parking is not permitted.
