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, keep in mind that there are other carsharing providers that get you to TXL 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 (P2), put back the key in the glove compartment and end your rental. Easy right?
Will you pay an extra airport fees at the TXL Airport?
You will be charged an additional fee of 5,90€ to your ride to and from Tegel airport. For the rest, you’ll be paying the same minute rate you usually do. Based on my experience, driving from Prenzlauer Berg to Tegel airport costs 15 euros vs. 25 euros with a Taxi. Not bad right?
Where should you park/pick up the car?
Driving to TXL with car2go
When arriving at the airport, follow the signs to Terminals A and E and you’ll soon arrive at the P2 parking. The area is reserved for all carsharing providers so you can drop off the car there.
Leaving TXL with car2go
If you’re driving back to the city, walk towards Terminal D and you’ll find the P2 area right in front of you! You’ll see loads of car2go, DriveNow and MILES cars in the parking waiting for you to book!

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!
