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 need to refuel the car, you can simply use the fuel card provided inside the car. You can use this card at partner petrol stations.

What are partner fuel stations?

You don't have to refuel our cars, but if you do, the cost is on us. Fueling 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 (glove compartment / armrest), which you can use at the following petrol stations:

Austria
BP, Agip, Avanti, OMV

Denmark
Circle K

Germany
Shell, Esso, Avia
Aral, Total

Hungary
OMV

Italy

Fueling is free unless you do so at non-partner petrol stations. In these cases, you'll have to pay for it yourself. Please request every time a VAT invoice to Wallis Autómegosztó Kft. Honvéd u. 20. 1055 Budapest (Tax number: 26320731241) with the license plate number of the rented vehicle and send the original invoice to us. In cases like this, after we received the invoice we will transfer the amount back for you, but a processing fee may then apply as per actual Fee and Cost Policy.

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:

If the fuel level of a SHARE NOW car is below 25% – and you refuel at a partner fuel station – we reward you with 1 990 SHARE NOW credit. Important: Credit is only granted if there is at least 90% of fuel left when you end the trip.

Credit earned is valid for 30 days. You can always check the validity of your SHARE NOW credit in the app.

Can I park my car at charging stations?

Yes and no. You can park the car at charging stations while the car is actively charging, but it is not always allowed to end your trip there. We always try to reach the best agreement possible for you in each city. This means parking regulations always depends on the city:

In Vienna, it is not allowed to end your trip at the SMATRICS charging stations. We recommend only parking at these stations during a stopover (it is allowed to use these charging stations only while a car is charging). See parking rules in Vienna

France
In Paris, it is only allowed to end your trip at the Autolib' charging poles if the car is actively charging. See parking rules in Paris

Netherlands
Yes. It is allowed to park and end your trip at the Vattenfall (formerly Nuon) charging stations if a car is correctly plugged in and charging. See parking rules in the Netherlands



Hint: To earn credit, please make sure to end your trip after the car has started charging!
