Which borrower membership should I choose - Featherweight or Heavyweight?

We offer two membership plans for borrowers: our no-monthly-fee Featherweight membership, and the $19-per-month Heavyweight plan for regular users.

Featherweight plan

  • No monthly fees
  • A booking fee per booking
  • Standard Damage Cover Liability (DCL) of $2000
  • Optional extra fee to reduce DCL to $500 for each booking ($1.50/hour or $18/day)

Heavyweight plan

  • $19 per month membership fee (billed on a calendar month basis)
  • No booking fees
  • Lowest possible Damage Cover Liability (DCL) of $500 for every trip

Which plan is right for me?

Our plans suit different types of users. For frequent users it works out cheaper to choose the Heavyweight plan, despite the monthly fee. One whole-day booking per month would cost $23 in booking and DCL reduction fees, so you’d be $4 better off on the Heavyweight plan (and even more if you use the service more regularly). However, if you don’t think you would use Car Next Door every month, you might prefer the Featherweight plan.
