Parking rules and guidelines for DriveNow Copenhagen

DriveNow Parking


With DriveNow, parking is included in your price per minute. When you end your rental, the car automatically starts payment for parking.

You are responsible for complying with our parking guidelines as well as the parking rules in the municipality where you park the car. This applies when you park the car temporarily with 'Park and Keep' and when you end your rental.


Ending a rental with DriveNow

When you end your rental, you must be inside the DriveNow Zone. You must end your rental in a public parking spot with no hourly restrictions where the car can stay parked for 2 hours or more.

Remember to check the parking disc in the windshield before you leave the car. If the parking disc shows incorrect time, you must call our Customer Centre and report the error.

The most important rules to remember when you end your rental with DriveNow.

Park and keep

When you need to park and lock your car during your rental - use Park and keep!

If you use DriveNow for your shopping trips or day trip outside the DriveNow Zone, you can use the feature to lock and keep the car.

When you are ready to go again, just swipe to open the car in the app.

Important information!

Our cars require access to a mobile signal to open and lock. In some parking garages, this signal can be disrupted due to the structure and design of the building, which may result in the car losing its signal. Because of this, we recommend that you use the parking garages and -basements that are included on our list of approved parking garages.

Please note that parking with Park and keep is at your own risk and at your own expense.
