| ||company: Cambio|
distribution: Belgium & Germany
company: though Cambio only started in March 2000, the founding companies - StadtteilAuto Aachen, Stadtauto Bremen and Stadtauto Köln – are considered the European pioneers of the car-sharing business, operating since 1990/91.
products: Cambio offers car-sharing and car rental services. A pool of different car types is available:
small city cars, spacious estate cars and vans, comfortable minivans or breezy convertibles. For shopping, weekends or holidays with whatever type you want!
prices: Cambio’s services are available at different tariffs depending on your own needs and habits. If you drive very little, for example, you can choose the ‘start tariff’, which offers a very low entry fee and fixed costs. The ‘comfort tariff’ - slightly higher fixed costs and still favourable driving prices – has been especially conceived for those who drive more frequently or longer distances. Just choose what fits you best!
sustainability features: in Aachen, Bremen and Saarbrücken the ‘blue angel’ - Germany’s eco-label - already adorns Cambio’s car-sharing service as the sign of an environmentally friendly mobility service. This is the result of Cambio’s effort to meet the label’s severe criteria for consumption, pollution and noise emission.
