CarSharing with stadtmobil Karlsruhe – How It Works

What is CarSharing?

The principle of CarSharing is simple: Individuals gain the benefits of a private car without the costs and responsibilities of ownership. Instead of owning one or more vehicles, a household accesses a fleet of vehicles on an as-needed basis. CarSharing may be thought of as organized short-term car rental.

CarSharing differs from traditional car rentals in the following ways:

  • Vehicle stations are distributed throughout Karlsruhe and the surrounding area. They are positioned for easy access by public transport.

  • Insurance and fuel costs are included in the rates. The costs of use are calculated based on the length of time booked (time rate) plus the kilometers driven (price per km) depending on the car category. You may find the price list in German for stadtmobil Karlsruhe in Downloads > Tarifordnung.

  • CarSharing is not limited by office hours: Reservation, pickup and return is all self-service.

  • Vehicles can be rented by the hour, by the day or by weeks depending on your needs.

  • Base of the agreement is a contract between stadtmobil and the customer. A valid driving licence and residence in Germany are required.
