Just around the corner: Find a car and off you go.

DriveNow is the car-sharing service from BMW i, MINI and Sixt that gives customers the flexibility to rent cars when and where they need them.

Simply use the app or website to rent an available car or pick one up spontaneously from the street.

Customers only pay for the time they use the car, then park it free of charge in almost any public parking spot within the business area when they’re done. DriveNow car-sharing includes the cost of fuel, repairs, pay and display tickets, car taxes and insurance. The customer card or app serves as key for the whole DriveNow fleet.

"We have been able to double our customer base and become one of the world’s largest car-sharing companies just within the past year and a half. That shows that DriveNow has really struck a chord."

Managing director of DriveNow
