Re: Car share/short term car hire

Now that you bring up Mobility, do you know if it is possible to pick it up at one station and had it back at another? Or does it have to go back to the original one?

Thank you in advance,
Christoffer

It is meant to be returned to the same one you hire from.

Re: Mobility car sharing

I am trying to find it in their website and cannot... Is there any option for unlimited (or at least >1000) km with Mobility service or is it only designed for short distance needs?

Only use Mobility for short distances, as you get charged by the km, but they offer discounts for partner rental companies for longer hires.

Re: Mobility car sharing

SOS! Hello all! I have question for the ones who have mobility car sharing account! I need a van for transporting furnitures to my new flat! Stupid me, I have decided to create account on the last minute and now it asks 70CHF just for 4months account.. If someone have mobility account, could you share with me, I would give beer afterwards (or ask something else)! We could go together on sunday for few hours driving in zurich (or not, as you preffer)! Also, if you (or someone else) could help with carrying furnitures, I would also suggest some beers afterwards (or something else). Action will take on this sunday, arround noon.. I hope you can help me

Use click and drive for moving it's better because you pay per the hour and it's ulimited mileage so you don't have to worry about kilometers. Unless it's a really short drive.

PS: click and drive is minimum 3 hours for the transporter. and I doubt you will find one available right now.

Re: Mobility car sharing

Have you checked that a Mobility van is available on such short notice? There are only a few around Zürich and they're usually booked well in advance on weekends.

If you find there is a van available, you can reserve it yourself even without an annual membership:
http://www.mobility.ch/en/pub/private/clickdrive.htm
You make the reservation online, print it out and bring it to a train station office, along with your driver's license. They give you a card and off you go.

Re: Mobility car sharing

I always find helping people to move quite funny. It's usually a lot of hard work which you'd pay a 'professional' a lot of money to do.

But friends ask for help and you help friends. Then when the time comes the friends help you too.

But when strangers on the internet want you to help them move in exchange for a few beers? Why in the blazes would anyone want to spend their Saturday doing that

I'm unclear. Are you asking for a date?

Do you have a mattress for the back of the van? (I'm fussy like that)

Not all location can issue a card. So you have to check which one can issue one as well...

Re: Mobility car sharing

This is the availability for Sunday.
So if you're quick, you could go today to the HB, get yourself a click and drive card and be able to book the slot from 7h00 till 12h00 on Sunday (see attachement). As you can see all other stations are booked up.

All hire cars have them
We drove a Europcar from France, returned it Lausanne, and had to buy a vignette. What's worse, they wouldn't reimburse us for it in Lausanne.

Why would a French rental car have a swiss road tax sticker

Sure, but in Zürich that's basically all of them: HB, Oerlikon, Stadelhofen, even Tiefenbrunnen.... Ok, not Selnau or Wollishofen maybe.

Has anyone here tried being a member of the Mobility cooperative? If so, do you really get the 1000 CHf back when you leave, as I cannot find the pdf of conditions about this anywhere.

I can now answer my own question 13 years later! Yes, you get it back but if you live in Switzerland, there is only two dates you can leave on, end of June and of December. Plus a 6 month notice period. So If you notifty in March 2020 you need to wait till 31.12.2020!

But if you have left Switzerland, they process it straightaway but deduct 50 CHF
