CiteeCar is currently based in Berlin and operates 500 cars in three other cities in the country including Hamburg, Frankfurt, and Munich. It rents out each car for €1 per hour for a minimum duration of 3 hours. Hosts allow the company's clients to use their parking space. In exchange, these hosts can use CiteeCar units for free, VentureBeat explained.
