Short answer:

The car's Owner pays for all the fuel that goes into the car. They are then reimbursed for every kilometre the Borrowers drive through their chosen distance income.

Borrowers pay for the fuel they use through the distance charge.

Whoever is driving the car needs to make sure they leave it with at least a quarter tank of fuel - whether that's the car Owner or a Borrower.

If a Borrower needs to fill up during their trip, they pay with their own money and upload a receipt for reimbursement. The amount they spent on fuel will be deducted from the final charge for the trip.

Any fuel the Borrower purchases during a trip is charged to the Owner in their monthly invoice, and offset by the distance income.

The pay-and-refund system:

  • Provides more transparency – Owners can see every fuel receipt as it’s uploaded by a Borrower and let us know if they notice any issues
  • Gives us more oversight – we’ll check every receipt to make sure the Borrower has purchased the right type and quantity of fuel
  • Reduces out-of-pocket costs for Borrowers - any amounts Borrowers spend on fuel will be deducted from their trip charge so they aren't out of pocket while they wait for us to process the refund
