Every Zen Car station is fitted with an electric charging terminal where you can plug in your Zen Car. While in possession of your Zen Car, you can also recharge it by plugging it into a domestic socket (220v).


We provide the electricity for all our vehicles, but you need to pay for the petrol for the BMW i3 with the Range-Extender (REX) technology. Please only use SP 95.


Mileage is unlimited, within the time constraints defined by your reservation (and your vehicle’s autonomy).


Each vehicle has comprehensive insurance with an own risk of EUR 890.00. This means that our insurance covers any accident provided the Zen Car driver is not at fault. If on the other hand, he is held liable, he will be invoiced for the amount of the repairs up to a maximum of EUR 890.00. The driver will also be charged for an own risk under civil law of EUR 500.00 in the event of a claim for which he is at fault whereby damage was caused to a third party.


Zen Car provides you with the electricity, the vehicle and the parking space but Zen Car also expects you to pay any fines incurred if you don’t observe the Highway Code during the time you are out and about in your Zen Car. You will also be expected to pay any processing fees incurred. In other words, it’s always better to drive zen…!


Your autonomy can vary depending on the vehicle, the weather conditions and your driving style. Always check the Autonomy of your vehicle before you set off. We guarantee a minimum of 40% autonomy at the start of the rental period. More information on the autonomy of Zen Car vehicles!
