Car2Go’s Smart’s have seat heating! The button is on the left side of the driver’s seat, where most people don’t find it. Enjoy! – Alexandra

Leg covers

In Paris, Coup’s e-scooters have leg covers to keep your legs and hips warm during cold winter scooter rides. – Florence

Frosty windows

carsharing tips

Bring your own ice-scraper for frosty windows! That way you can scrape the windows while the car is still reserved and you don’t have to pay for the time it takes. – Tobias

Cleaning report

Sadly people sometimes smoke in Car2Go cars, which isn’t allowed. Make sure to report this when you pick up the rental! – Lorenzo

Back massage

Not strictly a winter carsharing tip… but I LOVE Ubeeqo Golfs. They have very customisable seats with different back support settings. And there’s a button on the left side of the driver’s seat that activates a BACK MASSAGE. Game changer! – Christoph
