SHARE YOUR #MINILOVE.
HOW IT WORKS.
As a MINI owner, you can use our pioneering MINI Sharing to share your MINI with your family and friends. All you have to do is accept a booking request using the intuitive app. It's sustainable, individual, flexible – and very MINI.
1 MINI. 10 DRIVERS.
MINI Sharing lets you invite up to ten family members, friends or colleagues to share your MINI and become MINI drivers by using our all-in-one intuitive app. The integrated, shared calendar makes it easy to manage bookings in real time, and provide access to the MINI needed. Every user has full transparency of all requested, accepted and finished bookings.
A MINI WHEN YOU NEED ONE.
It all starts with a booking request to the owner of the MINI. Owners can grant VIP status to favourite drivers enabling them to book immediately without needing to wait for a confirmation. And confirmed bookings can always be overwritten by the owner. This ensures that the MINI owners maintain full control over their shareable vehicle.
KEYLESS ACCESS & DRIVING.
You can access the MINI with just one click on your smartphone using the app. It's the intuitive, digital key that guides drivers to the MINI, lets them unlock it and start the engine. It connects your device to your MINI via the MINI Sharing module fitted inside and unlocks a whole new world of opportunities. The MINI Sharing app works with almost any smartphone and can be downloaded on the App Store and Google Play Store*.
*Available in selected markets.
SAFE AND SECURE HANDOVER.
The handover process is also managed via the app. After enjoying the ride, drivers only have to return the MINI to the Home Area set up by the owner. Then the car can easily be locked via the MINI Sharing app. As soon as the booking is finished and the car is locked, MINI Sharing creates a trip summary of the journey. The Home Area is defined by a radius of 300m around the home address entered by the owner. A booking can, however, also be finished outside this area. If this happens, the driver and the owner will be notified accordingly.
Your guest drivers can use the app to make a booking request from their smartphone in just a few clicks. After you have accepted a driver’s booking, and it is about to start, the location of your MINI and directions to it are displayed on their device. The Vehicle Location is the current position of the MINI. Owners know the exact vehicle location as long as there is no on-going booking. But during the booking period, only the driver who started the reservation can see the location of the vehicle in the MINI Sharing app.
GET STARTED WITH THE MINI SHARING APP.
Get your MINI Sharing module installed by your dealer. Download the MINI Sharing app from the App Store or Google Play Store – and sign up. As soon as your MINI is retrofitted with MINI Sharing technology, you’re ready to add your MINI to your account. By following the steps provided in the app, you can add your MINI as an owner. Once that’s successful, you can use your smartphone to open, drive and close your MINI. Upon arrival at the vehicle, the smartphone on which the app is installed enables your keyless entry to the car. A Bluetooth connection between the device and the MINI makes it possible to open the vehicle doors and start the engine by pressing the start/stop toggle switch. It couldn't be easier.
