First of all, you should know that you can use guppy freely, without geographical restriction. You can drive and stop wherever you want, but yes, you have to finish the rental within the guppy area or at a guppy point.
The guppy zone defines where I can find and leave a guppy. In other words, these are the areas where I can start and end the rental of a vehicle. In addition, within the guppy zone there is no blue zone parking fee.
In the guppy app you will easily identify the guppy zone because it is highlighted in light blue. This covers most of the urban area of Santander and other areas of interest such as El Sardinero, the Palacio de la Magdalena or the Camello beach.
There are exclusive parking spots strategically distributed throughout Santander. You will identify them quickly as you can consult them in the app, both on the map and in the list of guppy spots. These points have free parking spaces for guppy users, enjoy free parking in privileged locations such as Hotel Santemar, Hotel Chiqui and Asociación Empresarial Hostelería Cantabria (Finca las Carolinas).

You have doubts?
Do I have to leave it in the same place?
It is not necessary. You can start the rental in one place and end it in another, as long as it is within a guppy point or zone.
Can I go where I want?
Yes, the only limit is autonomy. Remember that you have to return to the guppy zone to finish the rental. Check the charge level of the vehicle and the kilometers of autonomy available.
Can I stop anywhere?
Yes, as long as it is a legally permitted parking (not in loading and unloading, fords, areas reserved for people with disabilities, etc.) and keeping the vehicle in stand-by. What you will not be able to do is to end the rental if you are outside the guppy zone.
Do I have to pay the blue zone?
No. If you are in the guppy zone, you can park and/or end the rental without paying the OLA. In other towns you will have to pay the fee, as with any other vehicle.
Are there spaces reserved for me?
Yes, there are guppy points with exclusive parking spaces strategically distributed throughout Santander, including several parking lots, shopping malls and the airport (service temporarily out of service).
What about the parking lots?
If the parking lot has a guppy point, parking spaces exclusively for guppy users, you will be able to park and/or end the rental for free. In the rest, you can park if you keep the vehicle on stand-by and if you pay the corresponding fee.
