car2go: Withdrawal from UK market


car2go

May 30, 2014: car2go, the pioneer of “free-floating” car sharing, will be withdrawing from the UK with effect from 30 May 2014. We’ve listened closely to customer feedback and taking the UK’s strong culture and tradition of private vehicle ownership into account, we have decided to withdraw from the UK market place. car2go launched in Birmingham in 2013 and has been operating in three London boroughs since December 2012. The unique challenges we encountered were more significant than expected.

As the world’s largest free-floating carsharing provider, we will continue to observe the UK market for cultural changes towards the “free-floating model”. car2go will continue to be a worldwide success story as we operate in a total of 25 cities around the World with more than 700,000 customers.

With a moovel-account and a validated driving licence you will be still able to use car2go in all other 12 European car2go cities.
