How do I know where I can charge the car?

Can you go abroad with the electric shared car?

You are allowed to go abroad with the electric shared car. The car is insured and the charging card works at most charging stations. It is important to well prepare your trip since there are fewer charging stations abroad than inside the Netherlands. Use e.g. the charge map app to plan your journey. Please note: if the charging card of VandeBron or Ecotab is not working at a charging point you can use PayPal or your Creditcard and admit the costs at OnzeAuto in the app. We only refund if the prices are comparable with charging prices per kWh in the Netherlands. Make sure that you are not using the 'pay per minute' charging stations. Please know the range of your car, the range in the winter is different than in the summer. Variables such as speed and heating have a big impact on the actual range. Check the details of your car on ev-database.nl. We strongly advise finding a charging station ASAP when the power percentage drops below 20%.

What happens if I do not return on time and the car has already been reserved by another user?

The system schedules half an hour extra between 2 reservations. If the delay is longer, the help desk can rebook the next user to another free car.
