How do you activate your account for a car sharing provider?

To be able to rent and drive cars you first need to have verified your e-mail address and saved information such as your title, full name, registered address, and date of birth. You also need to enter and save a mobile number and your preferred method of payment.

You have to be at least 21 years old to use SIXT share, at least 18 years to use MILES. The use of MILES requires that you are at least 18 years old and in possession of a driver's license for at least one year. The information on your driving licence must be entered and saved in the app (driving licence requirements can be found here).

The validation process ensures that your details are correct and up to date. You can find out about your validation options and how validation works here.

You have to assign a PIN to open the car, as well as agree to the Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy of the respective mobility provider. Then you’re ready to go! Sounds complicated? If you meet the requirements it's very simple, as the hvv switch app will automatically guide you through all the necessary steps.
