Operators vying to assure the profitability of this type of transport, as drivers do not need to spend money on spare parts, repairs, fuel, because this is done by the companies themselves. You also don’t need to search for a Parking space and pay for it. Portal mos.ru he cited data that more than one million people registered in the short-term car rental system, who made more than five million trips.

The largest car-sharing service was launched in 2018. The fleet includes models of economy, business and premium class such as Volkswagen Polo, Audi A3, BMW 520i, Kia Rio. Most cars are equipped with on-Board computers with navigators, audio systems and voice control, as well as remote engine start, warm-up or cooling. All concerns about the condition of cars lie on the staff of the company-cleaning, repair, payment for Parking. Refueling is carried out at the company’s expense using special fuel cards, and the customer is not fined for an empty tank.
In a short time, the company received high ratings and took a leading position in the ratings. Yandex is the first service to use dynamic pricing plans. This means that the price of a ride in a rented car will be only 5-8 rubles, taking into account demand, time of day, traffic situation, and other things.
The advantages of Yandex car sharing include: one of the largest fleets in the capital (more than ten thousand cars); a variety of models (Nissan Qashqai, Skoda Octavia, Renault Captur, Skoda Rapid, Audi A3, Audi Q3, BMW 520i, Genesis G70, Mercedes E200, etc.); good condition of cars; favorable tariff packages (from 3 to 24 hours); no penalty for returning a vehicle with an empty tank; planning car search for a specific time; trips around the city, region, and even a little further end of lease in Vnukovo, Domodedovo, Sheremetyevo; fixed price list is available, as in a taxi; health and life insurance is included in the rental amount; during evacuation, the Fine will not exceed 3,750 rubles, and in case of an accident – 30,000 rubles.
Business class cars can only be taken by people over the age of twenty-six and with at least six years of driving experience. It is worth knowing that the dynamic tariff is not always profitable, as during periods of high demand, the amount for rent is more expensive than that of competitors.

The company’s service is one of the most efficient. The company offers per-minute car rental in the city and region. The company started providing services in 2012 and during this time has become the leader of the capital’s car-sharing industry. There are about a thousand cars in the fleet: Kia Rio, Audi A3, Nissan Qashqai and other models. All vehicles are equipped with automatic transmissions, except for the Renault Kangoo, as it is a truck.
Using the car-sharing services of the company AnyTime, you should not worry about spending on fuel, because they are already included in the amount (maximum 20 liters). Free Parking is provided in the city, allowing you to Park your car in any permitted place. However, there is one restriction-a ban on leaving the MKAD for more than 250 kilometers. It is convenient that the contract is drawn up online and the client does not have to go anywhere.
Among the advantages of a car-sharing company, we can single out a postpaid payment system. In other words, the vehicle is rented first, and only then the money for the service is transferred via the linked Bank card. The affordable pricing policy will also please you: the “basic” tariff will cost only 8 rubles per minute.
To use the service, the client must be at least twenty years old, and the minimum driving experience must be at least two years.

The company is the main dumping company in the domestic car-sharing industry. Surely many of the residents of the capital know the advertisement that made the service famous – ” 3 rubles and I’m yours!”. The company pleases customers with morning tariffs, which have ridiculous price tags. The fleet is constantly replenished with new cars and includes almost six thousand cars. From the models presented are very different from the VW Polo and ending with the Audi Q3. There are often promotions that allow you to save money, and there are promo codes that you can share with your friends. The geography of the service includes more than ten cities, which is very convenient for travel enthusiasts. Beyond the Moscow ring Road there are many areas for completing the lease. From airports, you can Park in Domodedovo, Vnukovo, and Sheremetyevo.
The “basic” tariff offers a ride by car, for example, Hyundai Solaris, Renault Kaptur for just 7 rubles / minute. There is a tariff with zero liability in case of getting into an accident, and the standby mode will cost 2.5 rubles. For the first inspection of the vehicle, they give little time – only 3 minutes, whereas in Yandex.Drive” is given 5 minutes. For such a short period of time, the client usually manages to evaluate the car only from the outside, but the salon will already have to be inspected, paying for every minute of downtime.
Users also note that the registration process is quite complicated: the system immediately forces you to subscribe to the tariff, fill out a questionnaire with many mandatory items. The agreement is drawn up in small print and is unreadable. You must print it out, sign it, scan it, and send the entire package of documents in a reply email, otherwise your account will not be activated. During the day, the profile will be checked by the security service, after which the client will either receive approval or not.
In the fleet, there are both brand-new and clean cars, as well as dead ones, which have been used since the launch of the service – since 2015. However, in case of any difficulties or problems, technical support immediately responds. Our service staff is friendly and available during all business hours. For returning a car with an empty tank, a fine of 1000 is charged, and for evacuation you will have to pay as much as 10,000 rubles, which is the highest indicator among Moscow car sharing companies.

In the fleet there is an electric car BMW i3, which can not boast of competitors. There is a separate YouDrive City project for traveling inside the Garden ring.
The fine for evacuation will be only 1500 rubles, but for returning the car with an empty tank, the client will not be charged money. They give you 5 minutes to inspect the car.

For example, on Datsun mi-DO, movement costs 5 rubles/minute and 2 rubles/minute for waiting; Kia Rio – 8 rubles/minute; Mercedes CLA-16 rubles/minute and 4 rubles / minute waiting. Registration pleases with its simplicity and speed – the client can handle it in just two minutes. All the app’s functions are clear, clear explanations of usage are provided in the form of slides, and there are no problems with checking photos and selfies.
Cars of a higher class are not as killed as economy, equipped with navigators, air conditioning, heating, chargers and other useful equipment, but trips on them are more expensive. It should be clarified that even old cars that seem, at first glance, unpresentable almost always have a clean interior, even in the cold season, when the street is dirty and slushy. It is clear that the company pays great attention to cleaning, and does not turn a blind eye to the garbage left behind by previous customers, as some car-sharing services do.
Premium-class cars also please with the well-groomed interior, although there are fewer of them in the fleet, so you will have to get several kilometers for a free car, unlike Kia, which are available almost everywhere. Here the customer will find in the trunk a canister of washing liquid, a brush for snow, which is important for the Russian winter. Yes, and the trip will bring more pleasure, since the difference in class is obvious, but you will have to pay much more for the pleasure. A twenty-minute rental will cost almost 300 rubles, when you can drive a Kia for the same time, spending only 75 rubles.

The company is popular because users like the price-quality ratio of the service provided. After launching the app, you will be asked to consent to data processing. On the same page, you will see information about pricing plans submitted as links. Unfortunately, there is no instruction, which can make it more difficult for a beginner to understand. Some customers in reviews complain that after sending documents, the response may either not come at all, or appear several days later.
The car-sharing service is sure to appeal to fans of driving crossovers. Despite the fact that the fleet is relatively small, including only 100 cars of one Renault Kaptur model, all cars are clean and rarely have significant defects. Travel is allowed not only in the capital, but also in the region. To complete the lease, you must arrive at a specially designated area within the MKAD, otherwise you will be fined.
People who have reached the age of twenty-two and have two years of driving experience can use the service. Among the advantages, we highlight the absence of collateral and hidden commissions.

The basic tariff plan will cost 7 rubles / minute, and the daily package will cost 1990 rubles, but you can drive no more than 100 km. In standby mode, each minute costs 3 rubles.

The company is famous for its most loyal attitude to customers, as it does not make excessive demands. Even eighteen – year-olds can use the company’s service, while competitors have an age limit of 20-22 years. This is the only service in the capital that allows you to rent a car after reaching the age of majority. Of course, the customer must have a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation and a driver’s license. Unfortunately, the company does not yet work with foreigners, but, as the owners assure, in the future such an opportunity will definitely appear.
The company has been operating since 2017, so the cars are new. The staff pays great attention to cleaning the salon. Renting a car in this service, you are unlikely to come across a salon littered with garbage left over from previous customers. The fleet is small, including 250 cars, most of which are universal Lifan X50, equipped with automatic transmission, heated front seats, air conditioning, airbag and audio system.
Parents need to remember that the company does not provide child seats, so you should take care to take your own, as anchorages for installation and fixing are provided. Car runs the service, but if the client decides to pour fuel (only petrol AI-92), he will return the payment, and in excess of two-gallon standards – will reward points, which you can later spend.
It is allowed to travel inside the city and outside, in the region. There is no penalty for an empty tank. The price of the trip according to the basic rate will amount to 6.5 rubles/minute. Parking spaces are free of charge. You can’t leave your car in areas without Internet access, as it won’t be possible to open doors via the app, or in underground Parking lots. Among the minor disadvantages, we highlight the lack of package offers and chargers.
