Car2Go Corporate ImageThanks to the team at Car2Go for sharing this information with our readers. Some infosharing about carsharing.

Let’s face it; transportation is a priority in all our lives for multiple reasons. As we go to work, lunch, business meetings, etc. we want a transit option that is reliable, dependable and easy. With so many other things to figure out, how we choose to get around town should be one the easiest.

Carsharing for employees is one stress-free decision that a company can make. With 200 vehicles available in our car2go home area and a fleet management team that ensures vehicles are ready to go at all times, why wait? Start carsharing and focus on what’s really important.

Car2go for employee’s checklist:

No Time Restrictions

With car2go you don’t have to wait for your transportation to arrive at a certain time; you can choose when you’ll use car2go anytime you want. It all starts with the tap of the app.

To ride a car2go, all you need is your smartphone and our app, which is available for all common operating systems (IOS. Android, Blackberry and Windows).

No Extra Fees

All costs with car2go for you or your business are known from the beginning. Our prices are all-inclusive: insurance, tax, fuel, parking fees and maintenance. Therefore, budgeting will be simple and right in line with reality.

With a business account, the company’s administrator will get a collective statement each month. We list all your employees’ journeys down to the exact number of minutes and kilometers. You can view all the trips from the past month, with start/end destination addresses, rental duration, route and price, on the car2go website. So you can stay on top of your costs.
