No. The start-up fee is charged only after you start your drive or after the expiry of the first free of charge 5 minutes before starting up the engine.
It does not matter when you make your booking. A lower parking rate is charged automatically from Monday to Sunday, from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m., so when you start your rental before 11:00 p.m., and you start parking after 11:00 p.m., a lower parking rate will be charged.
The area within which you can leave Traficar is marked in the app. But it must be located in the free of charge parking zone or in the urban zone of charged parking – except for a zone assigned by means of the resolution of the municipality (e.g. for privileged vehicles only) and in places allowed for parking only at specific hours. Remember that this location should enable the safe parking of the vehicle in accordance with the traffic law. It is forbidden to terminate your rental with a car parked in the private, underground, charged or free of charge car park belonging to a private person, municipality, company or store. Remember that the car must be within the range of a mobile network and GPS.
In order to book a vehicle, activate Traficar app on your telephone with Android, iOS or Huawei with HMS services and go to the map view. If a geo-localisation service is enabled, the map will be zoomed-in to show the nearest vicinity. In the map, search for the nearest car marked with the T pin, then click the T pin and you will see the exact location of the car and its fuel level, and you will be able to book this vehicle by choosing a rental type you want to use. You can also click the navigation icon in the app map to find the nearest car quickly. Ready. Your Traficar is waiting for you.
You can use Traficar vehicles only after registering a valid payment card, with a Visa or MasterCard logo, in your account. The fees for driving will be pre-authorised (blocked) on a current basis in the rental term. A link to the pre-authorisation regulations is provided below.
Remember to have the unblocked Internet, telephone and correspondence transactions, and to ensure proper funds for this type of transactions on your card. Your card should be valid for at least 31 days. You should also pay attention to daily limits on your card which may cause problems with payment collection. Most banks enable the management of limits and transactions in the Internet service or in the mobile app.
