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 or 45c per kilometre. Remember that we take a commission on your time and distance rates.

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 will not affect existing bookings. The Borrower will be charged the rates that were in effect at the time they made the booking.
