The Best Way to Arrive to Tegel Airport with DriveNow

DriveNow, among others, added Tegel Airport to its carsharing business zone in Berlin. That means that you can drive to and from Tegel Airport with a DriveNow car and not have to worry about paying the taxi fees you would usually pay. So YES, there finally is a hassle-free alternative to public transport or taxis when it comes to arriving at Tegel Airport!

Driving to Tegel Airport with DriveNow

Step 1: Book a car

Obviously, you need a DriveNow account and to be logged on in the app. If your DriveNow account is connected on your Free2Move App, that’ll do the trick! Plus you’ll be able to find another car in case DriveNow isn’t available. Once you find a car, all you need to do is book it (you’ll get 15 minutes of free reservation).

If you don’t find a DriveNow car at SXF Airport, there are plenty of carsharing companies in Berlin that will get you to/from the airport and you can compare the different airport fees here.

Step 2: Drive

In the app, you’ll be able to open the car, enter your PIN and start the engine. And you’re ready to go!

Step 3: Park

Once you’ll arrive at your final destination, simply park the car in the carsharing parking area (P2) and end your rental. Easy right?

Are there additional airport fees at Tegel?

DriveNow will charge an additional fee of 6€ 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 your DriveNow car at TXL Airport?

Driving to TXL Airport

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 Airport by car

If you’re driving back to the city, walk towards Terminal D and you’ll find the P2 area right in front of you!

How can you pass the parking barriers?

The carpark gates will automatically open when you approach with a DriveNow car. Don’t worry, you don’t need a ticket.


As I said, if you don’t find a DriveNow car, there are plenty of carsharing companies in Berlin! You can access them all through the Free2Move App so why not give it a go? Download the App and connect your different accounts in less time than it takes to buy a sandwich. You can even register once and the app will sign you up with different providers for you!
