How to Get Around Without Owning a Car - Behind the Lens


My photographic past year was awesome, car wise. I had a borrowed huge VW passat for over six months, named her Arabella and we got along just splendidly. 
Not so much anymore as she decided to have a break down (not on a wedding day though, good girl).

So then, what next, when your new income just does not cover an own car yet? In the country of cars they are just not as affordable as in many other places, ;)
After talking to Jan about this years game plan we decided to opt for car sharing. I had rented a car several times last year and it is not the best affordable option. So here comes Stadtmobil. As for me living in Stuttgart downtown I don´t need to have a car right in fron of the door five out of seven days. If you are familiar with those worries about financing an own car or live anywhere close to those little stations where you can rent a car via car sharing I can highly recommend this option. 




You can find car sharing in Germany here. And in Stuttgart here. They really do have a station in every second street down town which makes it super easy to pick up the car you need. 
If you need a bigger car you can find them with Stadtmobil as well. 
If you are a student and plan to move I can highly recommend this wonderful page here.



I hope this was helpful to some of you, 
see you next week!

Saluti!

  3. I love the idea of car sharing, in fact, I am going to see if it is available in my area. I only have to drive to work twice a week, and I considered selling the car and just calling a taxi but that ride back and forth could be costly. The ideal of sharing a care for those days would really be something that could benefit me.
