How long is a day (for calculating the daily rate)?

You will see that cars have both hourly and daily rates.

The hourly rate applies for each hour you have the car, until you reach the daily rate (usually 5 hours). The daily rate would apply for any booking of between 5 and 24 hours, meaning that the daily rate is the most you will pay for the car in a 24 hour period.

For example, if the car costs $5 an hour or $25 a day, you will be charged for each hour up to 5 hours (5 x $5 = $25) and then the rate will be capped at $25 for the remainder of that 24-hour period.

This would apply to any 24 hour period from the time your booking started. So for example, 9am one day till 9am the next day is a 'day' for the purpose of calculating the rate.

This makes Car Next Door vehicles really economical if you need to get around town for a day (or more)! Check out this cost comparison against car rental and other traditional car share options.

Note that there is also a distance charge of 33 cents for every kilometre you drive, which includes fuel and covers the Owner for wear and tear.
