We are sorry for the inconvenience caused; unfortunately, external factors sometimes reduce the communication ability of our vehicle. How to end the ZITY rental.
- If you’re renting a Renault ZOE: move the driving stick to position P (for “Parking”), apply the handbrake and press the “START/STOP” button on the dashboard of the vehicle, to the right of the steering wheel.
- If you’re renting a Dacia Spring: hold the brake down, turn the driving knob on the N position, turn the key all the way, pull the handbrake.
Then, make sure the lights are switched off and all doors and windows are closed. Once you are out of the vehicle, open the ZITY app and press the “End Rental”. Wait a few seconds and the vehicle will close: your trip is officially over. For more information, click here.
You can park for free at any public parking spaces (free or chargeable) in our ZITY service area, APART FROM UNDERGROUND PARKING GARAGES, as well as market areas and private car parks (even in Stand by mode). In compliance with the highway code, you can’t end your rental in loading and unloading areas, spaces reserved for people with disabilities, those reserved for authorities and those in constructions areas.
To make your life easier, we take care of recharging the vehicles, ZITYzens do not have to do it. If you want to rent a ZITY for several days and drive beyond the vehicle’s autonomy, you will have to return the first car in the service area (with more than 10km of range) and rent a new one. However, with the filter on the top right corner of the app, you can choose the most charged ZITYs around you: let’Z go!
All users have the duty to leave the vehicle with a battery range of at least 10 km. If this level is reached, you must park the vehicle safely in accordance with the parking regulations and end the journey. Otherwise, a “low battery” surcharge may be applied, as specified in the RTC.
Vehicles must be returned with a minimum battery range of 10 km. If you end a journey and the vehicle has a battery range of less than 10 km, this may result in financial penalties for the user. The battery range of the vehicle is visible at all times on the left hand side of the vehicle’s dashboard.
The Stand By function allows you to pause the rental of your ZITY anywhere, except in covered and underground parking garages, inside or outside the ZITY service area, keeping the vehicle reserved in your name. Stand By is offered at a reduced price (see ZITY’s rates and pricing policies).
To activate/deactivate the Stand By mode, press the “Stand By” button on the ZITY app during your rental and choose either “Activate Stand By” to activate the mode, or “Continue trip” to deactivate the mode. When you lock the vehicle, the system automatically switches from driving to Stand By and vice versa.
For more information on the Stand By rate, click here.
You can check the vehicle’s battery range directly from the ZITY app or on the vehicle’s dashboard. Please note that this value is only an estimate and depends largely on the type of driving performed on the vehicle. Our vehicles have a real autonomy of around 300 km for the Renault ZOE and 230 km for the Dacia Spring (305 km in urban cycle), with a 100% recharging percentage, under optimal driving conditions.
Our vehicles can only be driven by the user who rented the vehicle for the trip. Allowing third parties to drive the vehicle would constitute a violation of the Rental Terms & Conditions (RTC) and could lead to a financial penalty.
If the vehicle is already damaged before the start of the rental, please report the damage immediately on the ZITY app. To do so, click on “Damage” before you start driving the vehicle, during the booking phase. You can also contact us by calling +33 9 88 29 06 60.
You can drive your ZITY wherever you want, always respecting the highway code and our General Conditions of Use (GCU). You can leave the ZITY service area, provided you return and complete your journey within it.
