Flinkster is a nationwide car sharing service offered by Deutsche Bahn and is also available in Stuttgart. Rental and delivery takes place at fixed stations in the city area. In Stuttgart, Flinkster is available at around 20 locations, including Stuttgart Central Station and Stuttgart-Echterdingen Airport.

Bookings can be made via the Flinkster website or the Flinkster smartphone app.

There are different vehicle classes from simple to luxury class to the selection. The rental price is calculated as a combination of hourly rate plus consumption flat rate, depending on the vehicle type.

Those who do not have a BahnCard pay a relatively high, one-time registration fee (29.00 EUR, as of 2019), which makes the offer mainly interesting for people who want to rent a car from time to time. Thanks to cooperation with various car sharing partners throughout Germany, over 2,500 rental stations are available nationwide.
