USING A CAR

How do I book / rent a car?

As soon as you open the application you will see the map of all available cars. Make sure you have access to the Internet and location services.

Find a car on the map, select it by clicking on its icon. You will see information about your car and possible actions on the screen. To book a car click the "Book this car" button. Then you have 15 minutes to get to the car and open it using the "Start rental" command. If you do not open the car within this time, your reservation will automatically expire and the car will be available to other users.

NOTE: when making a reservation and not using it, or extending it several times, you block the car and prevent other people from using it. If this continues, you may be warned by our Customer Service Office. Because of this, the car may also be locked automatically and will no longer be visible to you in the application.

What is a PANEK zone?

The area visible in the mobile application (marked blue) where you can start and terminate the rental.

I see a car, but I can't rent it...

This car is most likely reserved or used by another customer or is excluded for technical reasons.

How do I open and lock my car?

You can open and lock your car using the mobile app installed on your phone. On the smartphone screen, select the appropriate command "Start rental" or "Finish rental".

If you want to use the "STOP-OVER" function, i.e. a break in the journey during the rental, then you also lock and open the car using the mobile application.

NOTE: It may happen that the application due to the low GPS coverage will inform you that you cannot open the car because you are too far away even though you are standing next to it. In this case to open the car, use the QR code on the triangular pane of the driver's door. When the code is scanned correctly, the car will open ready to use.

If you have followed all the instructions and the car still does not start up, please contact Customer Service Office.

What should I do before I drive?

Before you open the car you will be asked to complete a report about any damage and cleanliness both inside and outside. It is important for you and other users of the system to fill in the report thoroughly so that you are not responsible for the damage caused by other users.

After you have opened your car, you have 3 free minutes to do the above and to prepare for the drive. For your safety, set up your driver's seat, mirrors, steering wheel height, fasten your belt and turn on the headlights (if the weather requires it).

How do I start my car?

  1. Press and hold the brake with your right foot.
  2. Press the POWER button on the steering column. The "READY" indicator on the dashboard lights up.
  3. Press the brake and shift gear (D - forward, R - reverse).

NOTE: The car has a hybrid engine, so when you start the car and park, you use an electric motor which you cannot hear.

How do I finish my rental?

Park your car in accordance with the traffic regulations. You can't finish your rental in places like:

  • underground car park
  • private car park
  • multilevel car park
  • spaces with access restricted for other users (barriers, closed car parks, etc.).

Move the gearbox to "P", press the POWER button without pressing the brake pedal and leave the vehicle (make sure you have switched off the lights and closed all windows).

The "Finish your rental" button will appear in the application, use it when you are out of the car and wait until the car locks. Check by pulling on the handle to be sure.

The car does not start.

Make sure that you have followed the instructions for starting the journey (large sticker over the glove compartment).

The car may not start if you shift your gearbox before the READY light is displayed.

Can I go from Warsaw to another city?

You can travel wherever you want in Poland. Remember, however, that it is only possible to finish your rental within a PANEK Zone and in special car parks in the city from which you took your car.

NOTE: You may encounter small islands near the main zone area. You can use the service to move freely between these locations.  

CAR SPECIFICATION

Our fleet

In Warsaw we have a fleet of 600 hybrid Toyota Yaris cars with automatic gearbox. The cars are equipped with, among others, a backup camera, Bluetooth multimedia system with the possibility of connecting your phone, which you can put in the bracket mounted for your convenience. The car also has a phone charging cable for the three most popular standards.  The cars are equipped with ISOFIX system allowing to install child seats. A maximum of 5 people, including the driver, can travel by car.

What is a hybrid?

A hybrid drive is a combination of a traditional combustion engine and an electric motor. A car can be silent when starting up and driving at a low speed and does not emit exhaust fumes then because it is running on an electric motor. It selects its own driving mode and, if necessary, switches on and off the electric and combustion engines. It charges during braking and driving up when you are not using the accelerator.

Automatic gearbox

The vehicle has only an accelerator and brake, which are operated only with your right foot (the left foot is not used while driving). When you change gears to D, the car will start rolling forwards. When you change gears to R, the car will start rolling backwards. Remember that the stop-over and finishing the rental are possible only when the gearbox is left in the "P" position.

Where can I find the keys and documents?

Cars in the new service do not have a key. You can start the car if you press the POWER button.

Each car has its own instruction manual and stickers to help you find everything you need to drive. In the glove compartment you will find a registration certificate, insurance policy and fuel card, with which you can refuel your car and get a discount.

What is in your car's equipment?

Our cars are very well equipped. Apart from the automatic gearbox, there is also 2-zone automatic air conditioning, 7 airbags, a large colour touch screen and a backup camera.

In addition, the car features a multifunction steering wheel, an audio system with 6 speakers, a Bluetooth system, electrically adjustable and heated mirrors, electric windows and an ISOFIX system. For the comfort of the customer, the cars are also equipped with a multifunctional charger and a phone holder.

PARKINGi PANEK

Where can I park my CarSharing car?

Always park your car only where it is allowed. If you want to finish the rental, park your car in a PANEK zone or in a special car park, if you want to use the "STOP-OVER" function, you can park your car in any allowed place that has GSM coverage (without it you will not be able to use the application).

NOTE: If you want to park your car in an underground garage or in a place with limited GPS access, you can do so using the QR code. However, you will not be able to finish your rental in such a place.

Parking costs in the city's Paid Parking Zone?

PANEK CarSharing cars automatically pay for their parking in the city's Paid Parking Zone in Warsaw, even if you use the "STOP-OVER" function.

NOTE: if you select the "STOP-OVER" function in a paid parking zone other than Warsaw, you are responsible for paying for the parking fee.

Where can I finish my rental?

The rental can be finished within a PANEK Zone, the city's paid parking zone and special car parks, excluding private car parks and restricted areas (barriers, underground parking, closed car parks, etc.). Remember to park in accordance with the road traffic regulations. It is important that the car is available to other people after the end of your rental period.

Where must I not finish my rental?

In a place where there are any restrictions on access to the car, e.g. time restrictions (car parks closed at night), financial restrictions (fees except for Paid Parking Zone and special car parks) or physical restrictions (barriers, gates, etc.). You will not finish your rental outside the PANEK Zone either.

Remember also that you must not finish the rental and use the "STOP-OVER" function in a place where there is no GSM coverage - e.g. in underground parking lots or in places which are not in accordance with the road traffic regulations.

What is the difference between finishing the rental and the "STOP-OVER" function?

"STOP-OVER" is a break in your journey during the rental period. Use this function if you want your car to wait for you. The function is activated when "STOP-OVER-Lock the door" is selected in the application. You will pay PLN 0.10 per minute for the stop-over, i.e. PLN 6 per hour. "STOP-OVER" will turn off automatically when you start the ignition of the car with the POWER button.

NOTE: If during the "STOP-OVER" you decide to finish your rental, you can do it remotely without approaching the car.

What are PANEK special car parks and how do I use them?

These are separate parking lots marked on the application map, which you can use on special terms. Several special car parks are currently available:

  • Okęcie Airport (places marked PANEK on P1 parking lot, level 7),
  • Modlin Airport (parking lot in front of the terminal)
  • above-ground parking lot at 1 Sierpnia 10 Street,
  • parking lot of EMPARK building, Domaniewska Street (Mordor)

All special car parks can be found in the application.

In all special car parks you will finish the rental without incurring any parking costs. In the case of the "STOP-OVER" function at airports, you pay for parking according to the rules of the parking lot.

The rules for entry and exit of special car parks at airports are as follows:

Entrance - collect the parking ticket in front of the barrier and leave it in the car at the end of the rental period.

Exit - to open the barrier, use the parking ticket in the car.
