7 tips to make your Christmas run smoothly

Christmas is supposed to be a time of good cheer, celebration, and relaxation but for many, Christmas can also be stressful. The right presents have to be found, the dinner prepared and everything has to be ready before the big Christmas celebration kicks off on the 24th of December.

To help you avoid business during December and instead enjoy Christmas as “the season to be jolly”, we have gathered 7 tips that help you make it in time, find the last-minute present, park for free while doing the Christmas shopping, and much more.

1. Avoid frozen fingers and crowded busses ☃️

Ice-cold cheeks, frozen fingers, and lack of space in your arms for all the presents? Over-optimism occasionally takes over when you try to balance all the gifts and overcrouded busses.

Avoid all the hassle by booking an electric car in our app instead. Then you can check off all the Christmas shopping and Christmas gifts once and for all.

Turn up the seat heater, put on your favorite Christmas songs from our Spotify-Christmas-list and enjoy parking for free at our Hotspots in several shopping malls while doing the Christmas shopping.

2. Park for free in shopping malls 🅿️

Is there anything worse than short-term paid parking? With GreenMobility, you have VIP parking in several shopping malls in Helsinki and Espoo, where you park for free for an unlimited number of hours. Then you avoid rushing around during the Christmas shopping.

You can find GreenMobility Hotspots in Forum, Sello and Kaari.

Use the function “Stopover” in the app while parking. Then the car locks while you are away from it and you can continue the trip when you are ready for it. During “Stopover”, no one can reserve the car and the car is therefore still yours. Remember that “Stopover” costs the same as the normal minute price. If you are driving on an hour or day package, the package is still running during “Stopover”.

3. Get going in time - Get a car delivered 🚗

Are you going to visit some friends in the other end of the town? Maybe a thick layer of snow has prevented public transport from driving on time, and you have promised the host to bring your popular home-made Christmas tarts and wine for the food?

No problem! Get a car delivered to your address during December from only 5€. Then you are guaranteed a free car, exactly when you need to get going. We deliver the car shortly before your chosen delivery time. You can easily order a car for delivery under “Book a car” in the app.

4. Chrismas holiday in a Green 🎅

GreenMobility is here for you in thick and thin throughout the holidays! Maybe you are planning a few days away, visiting some family or a whole week’s holiday in Finland?

You can easily rent our electric cars for 1, 2, 3 or 7 days. You can see all our packages here and buy them in the app under “Packages”. When you buy a package that suits your holiday, the package automatically starts on your next trip. Reserve a car in the app and start the trip.

Remember that the package includes a fixed number of kilometers and days. If you drive longer than the ones included, you drive for 0,25€ per minute and km. If you need to drive for a longer period of time, you can always buy an extra package for your trip and continue the trip.

With all the packages you also pay an energy fee of 0,15€ per every driven kilometer.

You can charge our electric cars throughout the country. Just remember that the car must return to its zone where you started the trip before the trip can be completed.

5. Last minute Christmas gift? Give 1000 electric cars 🎁

Are you late with the last Christmas gifts? Then we have a great idea for the perfect gift that can be purchased online in 2 minutes.

With a gift card to GreenMobility, you can give someone you know access to 1000 electric cars. You choose the amount on the gift card yourself and can have the gift card sent directly by email. Easy!

6. Busy the 24th of December? Get notified of available car 🔔

The calendar finally says the 24th of December, but you still need to get the last things done in time. If you are among those who rarely leave on time because the last gifts still have to be wrapped, we have a great tip for you this year.

We can notify you of a free car close by, so you do not have to keep track in the app yourself. Just activate a radar in advance in our app for free.

You choose where and when you need the car. When there is an available car within your chosen radius, we will automatically notify you on your phone, and you can then reserve the electric car directly with a single swipe.

7. Dreaming of a... cheaper 2023? 💰

Christmas often eats away at your wallet. Fortunately, you can save more money on driving in 2023 by adding prepaid minutes into your GreenMobility account.

With prepaid minutes, you drive from only 0,25€ per minute instead of the standard minute price of 0,50€ per minute. It’s half price!

Add 75, 175 or 600 prepaid minutes into your account, which you can spend on many different trips; to do some shopping, drive to work, for exciting experiences in January and much more.

Find the minute package that suits you best under “Packages” in the app.
