Car2go is a carsharing service, and part of a growing network of companies offering two-seater smart cars for people on the go who just need to get from point A to point B. Perfect for travelers and residents of metropolitan areas, cars are available so you can get where you need to go.

One of the other 700,000 Car2go users will find the car you just parked is in a convenient location, and take it where they need to go. Hourly rates include full access to the cars, insurance coverage, and fuel.
Car2go is an incredibly efficient and easy way for occasional travel – great for tourists and city-dwellers who generally don’t need a car. Car2go is located in major cities around the world, from Rome to Amsterdam and Seattle to Miami, Car2go allows you access to a car when you wouldn’t otherwise.
