Shell card and Carloh’s electric vehicles charging
All our combustion vehicles are equipped with a Shell card. These cards give you access to the Shell and the Esso networks all over Europe, in order to fill the tanks of Carloh’s combustion cars.
You can charge our electric vehicles at the stations where you picked them up by using the charging card of the car. Each user of an electric car from Carloh must compulsorily charge the vehicle at the end of their trip.
Never less than 1/4
It is not convenient to take a Carloh car with less than ¼ of tank remaining. You will have to start your trip by looking for a fuel station. In case that your car has less than ¼ of tank remaining at your return, you are obliged to refuel the car by using the Shell Card before you return the car to its station.
The transport of animals is allowed in the cars in consideration of the hygienic and legal conditions! Animals must be transported in an appropriate animal box in the boot of the car! If an extraordinary cleaning of the car should be necessary after your animal transport, the costs will be charged to you.
Out of respect for the non-smoking customers and also for the cars, it is strictly forbidden to smoke in the cars of Carloh. If you realize that the previous user of the car has been smoking in the vehicle, please contact the Call Centre immediately!
Are other persons than me allowed to drive the car?
Yes, they are, as long as you are also present in the car and the driver has a valid driving license and is in condition to drive a car.
It is forbidden to let another person drive the car when you are not with him, except if that person is registered as authorized driver in your contract. In this case, please call the Call Centre and change the drivers name in your reservation.
You want to spend a weekend in Belgium or France? You have to go for business abroad? Go ahead!
You can use the cars of Carloh all over Europe. The SHELL Card is valid in every SHELL or ESSO station in Europe!

You will be charged with a fee of 15€ which will be credited to the disadvantaged following customer.

Driving electric: Is it easy?
Get and drive an electric vehicle often seems to represent many barriers: but in practice, it’s very easy. Driving an electric vehicle is the same experience as driving an automatic combustion vehicle. Regarding the battery life, these cars have a battery life of 100 km and even 200 km for the newest models: this type of car offers you comfort as well as a highly appreciable silence! In terms of charging an electric vehicle, you can simply do it directly at the station where the car is parked.
The participation in our information session is mandatory for every client, because it will guarantee the understanding and the most efficient use of our cars and services.
Carsharing means to share a vehicle with several users. To make sure that everyone is finding his best way to use Carloh, it is important to sensitize our clients to the rules and expected behaviour. The objective is that every client of Carloh is completely satisfied!
