Short answer:

You set your own hourly, daily and distance rates for your car. You can change these at any time through the website or app.

You can set your rates at between $4 and $100 an hour, and between $20 and $500 a day. You can also choose your own distance rate from 21c, 33c, 39c, 45c  or 53c per kilometre. 8c/km of your distance rate is paid directly to Mobility Mutual to provide damage and loss cover for the borrower, and the remainder is paid to you.

  2. Enter your desired hourly and daily rates OR choose your distance rate

  1. Log in and go Cars > Profile

Initial rates

When your car is first listed, we'll set the initial rates so that we can get it online ASAP. You are able to review and adjust these rates at any time.

Any changes won't affect existing bookings

Your rate change will take effect immediately, so any trips booked after you make the change will be charged at the new rates.

Changing your rates won't affect existing bookings. The borrower will be charged the rates that were in effect at the time they made the booking.

  • Hi, I note that the article says "experiment with raising your rates during busy periods". Is it possible to have a forward calendar for Owners where we can set the rates for specific days? It is difficult to manage changing rates to capitalise on busy periods (school holidays etc.). I have a booking 7 months in advance where they are locking in low rates over the peak periods. On one hand, good that it is booked, on the other, likely missed opportunity for higher rates.
