Driving To Schönefeld Airport With Car2go
Arriving to Schönefeld Airport shouldn’t be a hassle, but most of the time it is. Taking a taxi costs between 40 & 50 euros and going there by public transport isn’t always fun. Specially not at 5 AM. Many are not aware that you can get to Berlin’s airports with carsharing. Car2go is one of the carsharing companies that gets you to Schönefeld Airport, hassle free. In case you’re wondering why you should even consider this option, let me just say that it’s cheaper than a taxi, faster than public transport, AND you won’t need to drag your luggage in the S-Bahn. Keep on reading to get all the information you need for your next trip!
Schönefeld Airport with car2go in no time
Book your car
Whether you’re arriving or departing from Tegel Airport, you should start off by opening your Free2Move App to find and reserve the closest car. Make sure your car2go account is connected on the app in order to book it! In case you don’t find a car2go car, remember that you can find other carsharing providers to get to SXF airport (you’ll see that on the Free2Move app).
Get closer to the car you booked and enter the PIN that appears on the small screen in the front window. Get in the car and put the key in to start the engine. And you’re ready to go!
Once you’ll arrive at your final destination, simply park the car in the carsharing parking area (P6), put back the key in the glove compartment and end your rental. Easy right?
Are there extra airport fees at the SXF Airport?
You will be charged an additional fee of 5,90€ to your ride to and from Schönefeld airport. For the rest, you’ll be paying the same minute rate you usually do. Based on my experience, driving from Kreuzberg to Schönefeld airport costs 16 euros vs. 40 euros with a Taxi. Not bad right?
Where should you park/pick up the car?
Driving to SXF with car2go
When arriving at the airport, follow the signs for P6 parking. The area is reserved for all carsharing providers so you can drop off the car there.
Leaving SXF with car2go
If you’re driving back to the city, walk towards Terminal D and you’ll find the P6 area right in front of you. You’ll see loads of car2go, DriveNow and MILES cars in the parking waiting for you to book!
Passing the parking barriers
That’s the easiest part. The carpark gates automatically open when you approach with a your ca2go rental, so you don’t need a ticket. That’s it, you’re ready to go!
Remember that there are plenty of other carsharing companies in Berlin, so if you don’t find a car2go, look for a MILES or a DriveNow on Free2Move. If you haven’t tried it, download the App and connect your different accounts in a minute. You can even register once and the app will sign you up with different providers!
