One such example is car2go. You’ve probably seen their ubiquitous blue and white smart cars (and great parking spots!). As you can rent a car by the minute or by the day, it’s a good option for those who only need a car for a few hours. There are car2go locations all over North America and Europe. However, you can’t use your North American membership in Europe, or vice versa. You need two separate accounts, with different email addresses, phone numbers, and driver’s license numbers. As most drivers don’t have multiple license numbers, it’s been very difficult for travellers to use car2go on other continents.
This has proven to be quite a surprise for car2go users travelling internationally. During travel, it’s best to make sure you are familiar with all the regulations and rules for any new-to-you company prior to departure.
