Important:

You cannot end your rental outside the DriveNow Zone. As a general rule: You can park in any public on-street legal parking space where there are no restrictions due to come into effect within 48 hours. Please note that special parking regulations apply for Westminster.
When parking outside the DriveNow Zone, you will need to select 'Park & Keep' in the app and purchase a parking ticket if required and adhere to the signed parking restrictions/regulations.
You cannot end your BMW i3 rental in an electric charging bay unless the car is put on charge. (Parked electric cars in a charging bay not put on charge will incur a Penalty Charge Notice from the local council).
