MILES opens car sharing service in Belgium

Independent car sharing company MILES has opened a new free-floating car sharing operation in Belgium. The company is live in eight German cities, including Berlin, Hamburg and Munich, and now has a presence in Ghent, too, with Antwerp and Brussels to follow.

MILES in Belgium has a fleet of over 100 cars, and plans to add more cars and vans, including battery electric vehicles. Hire charges are based on kilometres driven, or by the hour or day.

Oliver Mackprang, CEO of MILES, said: “At the beginning of 2022, there were already 194,000 carsharing users in Belgium, which corresponds to 2.5% of all citizens with a driving license. Today, seven times more Belgians share a car than five years ago.”
