car2go expands to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol


Good news for those traveling between Amsterdam city and Schiphol: car2go is expanding its carsharing service to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol by opening dedicated parking spots for electric cars of car2go. The new parking spots at the airport enable car2go members to use a flexible and environment friendly option for their way to or from Schiphol.

With the opening of sixteen parking spaces with eight charging stations in the public parking garage of the World Trade Center at Schiphol , Amsterdam car2go customers from now on can take or park an electric smart fortwo at Schiphol Airport 24/7. Users who want to park or pick up a car2go car find the new car2go hub at walking distance from the terminal . To enter or leave the parking garage easily, the gate opens automatically by recognizing the license plates of the car2go cars.

Since already six years, the market leader in free-floating carsharing is operating with a fleet of 350 electric smart fortwos in Amsterdam. The opening of the parking hub at the airport means a big milestone for the company and its currently 63,000 customers.

For us, Amsterdam is a very important and future oriented market. It is one of our three fully electric operated locations and we are very happy to see how more and more people in Amsterdam are convinced of our sustainable and flexible carsharing service. car2go is determined to offer users the best and most comfortable experience. It is therefore only logical that we steadily expand our services. We are very proud that, in addition to the cooperation with the municipality of Amsterdam and Amstelveen, we now have a new partner with Schiphol to serve members who live, work or travel in Amsterdam.
Olivier Reppert, CEO of car2go
It is important for Schiphol to be easily accessible. We are always interested in new opportunities to further improve our ability to meet travellers' wishes and needs - and in offering a wide range of services. We attach great value to facilitating collective and clean transport, so car2go is more than welcome at the airport. We are delighted with this partnership, as it will enable us to provide travellers, employees and visitors with an additional transport option.
Dieme Ketel, Sr. manager Parking & Mobility Services at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

The expansion makes the possibilities for national and international users of car2go a lot bigger. Schiphol is the second hub - after Stadshart Amstelveen - outside the ring of Amsterdam where customers can start or end their car2go rental.

In Amsterdam, the regular rate of car2go is € 0.31 per minute, including insurance, parking and charging costs within the home area. As already known from other car2go airport hubs, there will be an additional fee at Schiphol as well of € 8.90 per trip. In the month of September, customers who use car2go for the first time at Schiphol will receive € 5 in form of car2go credits that they can use as an incentive for their next trip.

By opening the car2go parking hub at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol , car2go customers can now start or end their rentals at the airports of 13 cities in Europe. Dutch customers using car2go regularly at home, do not have to go without it during vacation or business trips, whether it is in Austria, Germany, Italy or Spain. For using car2go transnationally, the users just have to accept the local terms and conditions.
