How much does it cost to borrow cars?

(This is a summary - check out our Borrower Rates and Plans page for more detailed info.)

You pay for:

  • the time you have the car; and
  • the distance you drive.

If you are on the no-monthly-fee "Featherweight" plan, you'll also pay:

  • a booking fee and
  • if you choose, an optional excess reduction fee.

Time charges:

Each car has both hourly and daily rates that are set by the Owner of the car. Typical hourly rates are $5–$7 per hour, and daily rates are $25-$40 per day. Check out the pricing of cars near you!

Distance charges:

You pay 33c for each kilometre you drive. This includes your fuel and also covers the owner for wear and tear on the vehicle.  

Booking fee:

If you’re on our free Featherweight plan, you'll also pay a $5 booking fee.

Damage liability reduction fee:

If you’re on our free Featherweight plan, you may also choose to reduce your excess for an additional hourly or daily rate. See the rates and plans page for details.

The Heavyweight membership plan gives you no booking fees and a low $500 excess (for people over 24 years old), for $19/month. 

Security deposit:

You won't pay a deposit, but for your first two bookings we will take a credit card pre-authorisation of $250 when you book. See Will I Need to Pay a Deposit?

All rates include insurance, roadside assistance and fuel.
