Carsharing doesn't just give you access to a wide range of vehicles, but also to a variation of different concepts. The three main types are free-floating, stationary and peer-to-peer:
Free floating providers are perfect for one-way trips. The vehicles are freely distributed within a certain business area. You can just pick up the one that is closest to you and park it within the area when you're done. Of course you can see the business areas of the providers within the Free2Move App. The concept is used by many different providers which offer a huge variety of cars, bikes, and scooters.
Stationary providers are perfect for longer and planned trips. You can reserve the vehicle of your choice at a certain station for a certain period of time. After the ride, you take it right back to the same station. The stations are usually within the city center or a certain region. Thanks to attractive hour packages from the providers, this concept is ideal for longer journeys.
Peer-to-peer providers are a special type of stationary providers. The difference is that you rent a private vehicle from a person just like you. You can reserve the vehicle in advance, pick it up at a certain location and bring it back after you finished your trip. The provider takes care of brokerage, billing, a proper insurance and usually allows you to inform you about the owner of the vehicle.
There are also some providers which offer a mixed concept of the above.
For example a free-floating provider which offers many different zones for vehicle drop offs within a city, or a stationary provider which allows you to move vehicles from station to station. Sounds complicated? It's not as soon as you have started using it.
