Bertha's journey comes to an end

On July 31, 2022 the Bertha app will go offline. To be able to use all functions of the app in the future you have two possibilities.

You are a Mercedes-Benz driver:

Switch now to Mercedes me Fuel & Pay to pay your fuel either contactless via Mercedes me app or directly from the vehicle. In the future you will find all functions in the Mercedes me ecosystem.

No Mercedes-Benz?

Get the ryd app. Just like Bertha, ryd allows you to pay for fuel via app. Even without a Mercedes-Benz vehicle.
