Deutsche Bahn's car sharing service is more agile. Cars can be booked by the hour or month at fixed stations in Berlin.
The car sharing service was launched in Berlin at the end of 2001 as part of Deutsche Bahn's mobility service and is now represented in more than 300 cities throughout Germany. Flinkster offers an extensive fleet of vehicles but, unlike its competitors, is tied to fixed stations.
Carsharing in Berlin: Multicity, DriveNow und Car2Go
The classic car sharing model from Flinkster provides for the vehicle to be returned to the rental station. If you are looking for a station-independent variant, Flinkster offers you the opportunity to use the free floating offer of the cooperation partner Multicity (Citroën) without further registration.
Registration and Hiring
After registering online, you can pick up your Flinkster customer card at one of the sales outlets after presenting your driving licence and identity card. The registration fee charged here is waived for BahnCard customers. Then the nearest station can already be found via Internet, App or Hotline and the vehicle can be booked in advance for the desired duration. With the help of the customer card, the rental car can be unlocked and locked. After the journey, the car must be returned to the station where it was rented.
Vehicle types and pricing
Flinkster offers different tariffs for different vehicle classes. There are various manufacturers to choose from - from small cars to vans, including various electric cars. "The expansion of electric mobility is of great importance to us. Young people in particular are opting for ecological mobility offers," notes Rolf Lübke, Managing Director of DB Rent and DB Fuhrpark. They are billed by direct debit or credit card at an hourly or daily rate, which varies depending on the type of vehicle. There is also a consumption flat rate per kilometre driven. Weekly or monthly rents can be booked on request. The booking begins exactly to the quarter of an hour, the first hour is charged in full, then calculated every half hour.
