CarVia Share is CarVia's car sharing service and makes it possible to rent a car via smartphone. We are characterised by a fleet of vehicles with a lot of driving pleasure, a large proportion of electric cars and maximum flexibility. This means that you can rent cars not only by the minute, but also for up to a month.

Simply download our "CarVia" app from your app store. Here you can register for free. The registration process takes just under 5 minutes. Afterwards, you can start driving immediately and check out the exciting CarVia fleet.

Use of the app is free of charge.

And it gets even better: With our carefree Pricing, you always travel at the lowest rate. Depending on the duration of the journey, the algorithm automatically switches from the minute rate to the hourly or daily rate. This eliminates the need for time-consuming route planning and reduces the stress level during the journey.
