What is the difference between car rental and car sharing?


Car rental is slightly different from car sharing. Some of the benefits of car sharing will explain the difference with car rental:


There are many more places to pick up a shared car. You can find Greenwheels in more than 1,850 locations throughout the Netherlands. You'll always find a car nearby, which you can use any time you want. So you don't have to go to a car rental company first to pick up the car.


A Greenwheels car is available to you 24/7. You don't have to take the business hours of a car rental company into account. You can even book and pick up a Greenwheels car in the middle of the night. Just unlock the car with the Greenwheels app, with a linked Greenwheels card or your public transport chip card, and hit the road.


You only pay for what you use. Want to use the car for 15 minutes? No worries. You can use shared cars at affordable rates for shorter periods. A car rental company will often charge you for the day or even the weekend.


The fuel is included in the price. Every car comes with its own fuel pass, which you can use to refuel the car when necessary. So you don't have to pay for this yourself. The tank must always be at least a quarter full when you drop off the car, so the next driver can also hit the road.
