You can download and register for hvv switch free of charge. There’s no basic fee. You only pay for what you actually book or purchase when using our app.
You cannot cancel a hvv ticket you've purchased in the hvv switch app. If a technical error occurs during a purchase however, please contact hvv switch customer service. We will then check whether cancellations can be made on a case-by-case basis.
You can park in any publicly accessible parking lot (free of charge within the business areas) of a city, the hvv switch points and in the designated areas at Hamburg Airport. In "parking ticket zones" please be sure to use a parking disc. A parking ticket is not required here. In designated "parking disc zones", the parking time is also limited. Please use the parking disc in your car and display it visibly. The rental period cannot be terminated in "parking disc zones", but intermediate parking is possible.
Comprehensive overviews of the basic parking rules can also be found at SIXT share, SHARE NOW and MILES. Familiarize yourself with the parking rules and note that other rules apply outside the Hamburg business area.
Basically, the parking guidelines apply according to the locally valid road traffic regulations.
You can register for the hvv switch app by downloading it on your smartphone, opening it, and then simply following the instructions in the app. Please remember to confirm your e-mail address. After registering you can choose from three different options at the moment:
- hvv ticket purchases
- MOIA shuttle bookings
- SIXT share, SHARE NOW and MILES car rentals
- TIER and Voi eScooter rentals
The app will guide you through the purchase and booking process. You will receive a separate invoice by e-mail for each service you buy or order. More services will be added to the hvv switch app over time.
As a MOIA user you can book for up to five additional people. The fare will then be calculated for all passengers and charged to your hvv switch account. Please remember to enter the number of people travelling with you when you make a booking request in the hvv switch app.When it comes to car sharing, you may travel with as many people as there are seats with seatbelts.
Unfortunately there’s nothing you can do about this. That’s because hvv tickets can’t be cancelled. If the double booking is due to a technical error, please contact hvv switch customer service.
