Owning a car in Berlin? You don’t need to – since there are so many car sharing companies: Sixt, Car2go, DriveNow, We-Share, Oply, Ubeeqoo, Drivy. See here an overview and comparison of their cheap offers.
Living in Berlin nearly all my life, I’ve never owned a car, already because Berlin’s public transport system is fairly cheap and functional. And with the rise of all those sharing companies for scooters, electric scooters and now also cars, there is even less reason to get your own vehicle.
Especially because the market of instant car sharing is just being created, and therefore many companies offer bargain prices to just get more customers registered on their apps.
How does car sharing work in general?
First, you need to download the app of the company. In the app, you register then by adding
- your personal data (date of birth, address)
- a payment method (mostly needed: a credit card – see here a list of free German credit cards)
- and then most importantly: your driving license.
The driving license usually needs to be validated by a video call with your smartphone, where you talk to clerk and hold your driving license next to your face.

Most interesting offers
Sixt: Only 9 Cent per minute
Right now, Sixt offers a bargain rate of only 9 Cent per minute. This even cheaper than all of the new electric scooters!
Sixt* and then click “Share” in the header menu.
Getaround: Best day rates, also for bigger cars
Getaround is the only app in this list that lets you rent from private people. So instead of offering their own cars, they let car owners create a profile of their car and put it on their app as an offer.
This is why they mostly operate with day rates – and also, why they have the cheapest ones from all.
