BMW’s DriveNow car sharing service announced it was opening a branch at Munich Airport (Flughafen München) as part of a three-month pilot program.  Arriving passengers can pick up a BMW 1 Series or X1 as well as a Mini Cooper, Cabrio, or Clubman and rates start at €0.29 per minute of driving.  Time while parked is €0.10 per minute except between midnight and 6 a.m. when there is no charge.

Several package prices are available including three hours for €23 (including 60 km), six hours for €45 (120 km), and nine hours for €63.99 (200 km).  Each additional kilometer costs €0.29.

All prices include fuel (drivers may fill up at specific stations at no charge) as well as parking in parts of the city.

Drivers may also pick up a car in Munich and leave it at the airport if desired.  The drop-off point is within easy walking distance of the terminals.  Airport pick-up and/or drop-off has an additional €12 fee.

Other DriveNow cities in Germany include Berlin, Cologne, and Düsseldorf.

DriveNow is a joint venture between BMW and Sixt, a rental car agency.  BMW also offers a DriveNow program in the U.S. but  the U.S.-based DriveNow program is administered by BMW and available in select metropolitan areas including San Francisco.
