You pay for your trip in two parts: at checkout when you book and then after your trip ends.


Pre-trip costs

Hire costs that are charged at the time you book a car.

Time charges

Each car has an hourly and daily rate. You pay by the hour until you reach the daily rate – the daily rate is the most you'll pay for a car in a 24-hour period.

Example: A car costs $5 an hour and $25 a day. You’ll pay for each hour up to 5 hours (5 x $5 = $25) and then the rate will be capped at $25 for the remainder of the 24-hour period.

Some cars have higher rates on certain days or times of the year. You’ll also find some car owners offer discounts when cars are booked for 3 days or more, or 12 days or more.

Booking fee $4

Fee charged to customers and paid out to cover auto insurance, onboarding costs, and other trip-related expenses.

Basic Cover

Basic Cover is 20% of the time charges. It provides you with insurance and vehicle protection for your trip.

Premium Cover (optional add-on)

You can reduce your excess from $2,000 to $500 for an additional $2 an hour or $20 a day.

Post-trip costs

Distance charges

You pay a distance charge for each kilometre you drive, depending on the type of vehicle. You can also see the rate on the car's profile. This cost includes insurance and vehicle protection, gas and the car's running costs.

  • Electric vehicles - $0.12/km
  • Cars - $0.22/km
  • SUVs - $0.27/km
  • Vans/minivans - $0.32/km
