Yes, you can park during a current rental.
With SIXT share you need the car key, which you will find in the glove compartment. With it, you can lock the doors and move away from the car while the rental is in progress. The cost of the rental continues while the car is parked. At the end of the rental, please return the car key to the glove box and lock the car via the app.
With MILES, the parking mode is initiated via the hvv switch app. A car key is only available on the vans. Please note that parking mode is charged per minute. Instructions on how to do this can be found here.
Making a stopover with SHARE NOW is very simple. You start by parking the car and closing all doors and windows. The following steps vary depending on the type of car:
