About the cars

How to find manual cars?

Select a car in the app, you will see the transmission type under the "START" button.

Pro tip: Look for the Italian Blue Fiat 500s.

How do I start a manual car?

You can only start the manual Fiat 500 by depressing the clutch and brake pedals.

The car has a Start-Stop system, so if you stop for traffic reasons, the engine will stop. In such cases, set off as usual and the engine will restart automatically.

Are SHARE NOW cars insured?

Yes. All your trips are covered by third-party liability insurance:

Base Fee (Basic Coverage):

The Base Fee automatically reduces your deductible to 300 000 Ft.

Plus Coverage

In addition to the Base Fee, you can choose the Plus Coverage for each trip for a one-time fee, which reduces your deductible to 100 000 Ft.

Drive carefully, because normal or reduced CASCO deductibles will only protect you in case of intended use that is in accordance with the GTC.

How do I rent keyless cars?

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

Here's how it works:

  1. Locate a car near you using the app.
  2. Tap 'Reserve' and make it yours.
  3. When you're at the car, tap 'Start' in the app.
  4. Use Face-ID or enter your 4-digit PIN.
  5. The car unlocks automatically.
  6. To start the engine, press the Start/Stop button.
  7. Arrived at your destination? End the trip via the app.
How do I rent cars with car keys?

The smart and Fiat models start with a key, and you can make a stopover with the Peugeot and Mercedes models using keys (however, you don't need them to start the engine).

Here's how it works:

  1. Locate a car near you using the app.
  2. Tap 'Reserve' and make it yours.
  3. When you're at the car, tap 'Start' in the app.
  4. Use Face-ID or enter your 4-digit PIN.
  5. Enter the 3-digit code shown on the car to unlock.
  6. You'll find the car key in the glove compartment.
  7. Arrived at your destination? Place the key back into the holder.
  8. End the trip via the app.
How far can I drive with an electric car?

The range of a fully charged electric smart can go up to 100 km.
The range of a fully charged BMW i3, or MINI electric can go up to 200 km.

The range will be displayed in the app and in the car.

Why do I get an error message saying my phone does not meet the minimum security requirements to rent BMW and MINI cars?

BMW and MINI cars come with a proprietary system that automatically screens any device that tries to connect with them. There are a number of possible reasons why your phone is being rejected:

  • If there are 2 separate SHARE NOW applications running on your phone (i.e. app cloning)
  • If Xposed Framework is installed on your phone
  • If the system suspects your phone has been rooted or jailbroken
  • If the system detects that Magisk is installed
  • If your phone fails the Google SafetyNet test

In case you're one of those full-time pros, these reasons may apply:

  • If the system detects that you're using an emulator (i.e. a virtual phone run on a computer)
  • If the SHARE NOW app is being debugged (i.e. if the phone has been connected to a computer to see what code is running in the app)
  • If the SHARE NOW app has been tampered with (i.e. if someone has tried to take apart the app to change something)

We understand this isn't great news, but you can still rent any of our other Mercedes-Benz, smart, and Fiat models.
