Landing in the unknown: the main dangers of car sharing Perhaps few service has gained popularity as fast as car sharing. In Moscow, cars with orange rear wings are already rippling in the eyes. Their park is growing, the number of fans is growing. By default, “sharing” refers to purely urban operation with per-minute billing. In fact, there are tons of exceptions to this rule.
The area beyond the Moscow Ring Road is not prohibited to complete the lease. Check with the card that is on the website of any operator, and you will see how far it can go. There is no strict division according to the principle “in Moscow - it is possible, in the region - it is impossible”. There are options when you can close the session in the nearest cities of the Moscow Region, but not in remote areas of the capital (do you remember how far the territory of the metropolis “penetrated” in the south?). So, living in a city near Moscow, it is quite possible to go to work and back in a rental car.
Cottage is another matter. You are lucky if it falls within the boundaries of the lease termination permitted by the operator. In this case, you can safely leave the car to the next user. True, with a prerequisite for free access to it. If the village is equipped with a barrier, pay a fine to the company. But nevertheless, the private sector included in the permissible parking zone is an exception.
How far you can get from the “base” city by car sharing machine also depends on the operator. The entire authorized zone of operation and closing of the rental session is indicated in the mobile application on the map. In the general case, we can say that it is possible to travel outside the city, and very long-distance runs are prohibited. To list all the nuances of a dozen operators is pointless and tedious: they each have their own. The permitted driving zone and the area where you can complete the rental may not coincide at the borders.
Traffic jamming: why traffic collapse is inevitable? However, winding a fair amount of kilometers by car is still permissible. Choose a per-minute rate, travel around the city - and the operator will not say a word to you for three-digit numbers. All leading companies offer alternative packages for several hours up to one day. But in this case, the limit on mileage is turned on, and more than 70-100 km will not be allowed to wind you at no extra charge. And, again, strictly in the area of permitted operation.
