Unforeseen events happen to all of us, so if for any reason you can’t make it on time you should let the muvon administrator (+34 623 188 381) know so they can contact the next user to coordinate a possible alternative. “To share is to care”.
Once the booking has been confirmed and charged, there will be no refunds for early termination.
All Muvon cars have a USB socket to charge your mobile phone. Make sure you have enough battery power to complete your booking by using the USB socket located on the central panel, below the navigation screen.
As long as you need, as long as it does not coincide with another booking.
You’ll find your car keys or remote control in the glove box or compartment in front of the passenger seat. Take them with you and use them to unlock and lock the car during your journey. At the end of your rental, put it back in the glove box.
Remember that as you are using an electric car and therefore automatic, you will only need your right foot, which you will use to switch between the accelerator (right) and brake (left) pedals. Forget about your left foot. If this is your first time driving an electric car, we recommend placing your left foot as far away from the pedals as possible (bend your leg next to the seat).
Once you are in the driver’s seat, with your mirrors adjusted and your seatbelt fastened, press the brake pedal WITH YOUR RIGHT FOOT and press the START button where the ignition is usually located.
The gear lever has four positions:
To move forward, move the lever to the D position and gently alternate the brake pedal with the accelerator. You will notice how the car starts to move forward. From then on it’s just a case of driving and singing.
On a full charge and under normal conditions, you can cover between 250 and 450 km, depending on the vehicle you have booked. It all depends on the type of driving you perform, the terrain and the use of heating or air conditioning during the journey. Here are some tips on how to optimize the battery of an electric car while driving.
Muvon vehicles are equipped with heating, air conditioning, GPS navigation (except for 2 vehicles that do not have it), multimedia station (radio, USB, Bluetooth) and Mennekes charging cable (supports fast charging) in the boot. Check the features of each car in the app when you make your reservation.
Yes, all Muvon cars are fully insured with an excess of €600.00. You can reduce this excess by half by paying an extra €5.00 when you make your booking. Please refer to the terms and conditions for more details about the cover.
Yes, you can drive on any public road in Mallorca, as you would with a normal car, except in ACIRE zones in Palma and other areas restricted to traffic, such as the cape of Formentor in summer. See our article on ACIRE zones in Palma for more information on how to apply for an access permit or avoid a fine if you have entered without authorisation.
If you wish to circulate in the ACIRE zone, you must request authorisation to enter. Either through the intercoms set up for this purpose, by telephone 971225530 or by email email@example.com.
In our blog you will find additional information on how to avoid being fined for entering Palma’s ACIRE zone.
You can park in the areas designated for this purpose. Remember that as an electric car you do not have to pay ORA in most municipalities. Check in our blog the municipalities of Mallorca where electric vehicles do have to pay ORA.
When you confirm your booking, the app will show you how to get to the car park. You will find the instructions on the screen of your booking in the app.
You can make the necessary stops and park during your journey by unlocking and locking the car from the app.
When your booking is complete, return the car to the same station where you picked it up, click on “Finalize booking” and complete the necessary steps to end your rental: Plug in the changing cable, perform a damage check, make sure the car is clean and lock the vehicle.
Charging the battery
Depending on the type of driving, use of heating and other factors, the car can travel up to 300 or 450km (depending on the car you rented). With an efficient battery use you can even extend the range while driving.
Muvon vehicles have a regenerative braking system: that operates when lifting your foot off the accelerator, not only will you slow down without pressing the brake, but the batteries will be recharged. Efficient use of the batteries means you can extend your range without the need to connect to a charging point.
There is a button next to the gear lever that will change the car into ECO mode: by reducing the acceleration and limiting the speed to 95km/h, you can extend the range considerably.
We recommend driving smoothly, anticipating maneuvers (reducing speed in advance), accelerating gently and making moderate use of the air conditioning. This will optimize battery life.
For more information, we recommend that you read our article with tips on how to optimize the battery of an electric car.
If you don’t have enough autonomy to reach the car park of origin, you should make sure you find charging points along the way that will allow you to end your reservation on time, using the NFC card that you will find in the glove compartment or the network of MELIB chargers in Mallorca.

The charging process will stop.

Rules of use
In addition to the traffic regulations, we would be grateful if you would bear the following points in mind when driving. Remember that you are sharing a car with other users 🙂
- Do not consume alcoholic beverages, drugs or any other substances that may alter your consciousness if you are going to drive.
- Do not smoke in the car.

- If you carry animals, carry them in a carrier.

Remember that as it is a shared car, other people may be waiting for you at the time your booking ends. If for any reason you cannot arrive on time and cannot extend your booking, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your arrival time.
During your booking, you are responsible for any fines for traffic violations, parking violations, etc. If we receive a notice and process a ticket, we will charge you a €20 processing fee in addition to the original amount of the fine. We are obliged to identify the driver to the relevant authorities as the rental contract you agreed to when making a reservation stipulates.
Send us an email to email@example.com to let us know that you have been fined. Whether you pay the fine or decide to appeal it, we want to know what happened. We need to know the date and time of the offense, the vehicle registration number, the type of offense (speeding, parking, etc.), the fine number, the amount and the location where you were fined. By doing so, if there is a problem with the payment process, or a technical glitch, we will know that you are aware of it and have not thrown it away. Please note that some violations can affect insurance coverage, so it is very important that you report any violations to Muvon.
If you do not pay the fine, we will be informed and you will be charged a processing fee of €20. In addition, you will still be responsible for paying the fine. If possible, we will resend the fine to you. And if we can’t, we will pay the fine and any surcharge. The total of this amount will then be taken from your account. You may be subject to further fines or account suspension, so we recommend that you pay the fine immediately.
If you want to appeal a fine and the issuing authority allows you to do so, please do so as soon as possible. If we receive a notification by post, and you have not yet appealed the fine to the issuing authority, we will automatically debit your account for the amount of the fine, plus the processing fee.
Whether you forget or find an object, the best thing to do is write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange collection. If you find it, leave it in the boot and we will arrange for it to be returned to its owner. Muvon is not responsible for objects left in the car during your booking, although we will do our best to recover them.

When you start your booking, take a moment to check the general condition of the vehicle and compare it with the report you will find in the App. If you find any damage that does not correspond to the damage control system, you must take pictures of each damage or breakage and upload it to the app for our evaluation. This is very important, as failure to do so may result in you being unfairly charged.
All cars get dirty with use, which is why at Muvon we take care to keep them as clean as possible.

Otherwise, extra charges may apply.
