Have I been charged for the right distance? The odometer shows I drove fewer kilometres.

Short answer:

To charge borrowers for the distance they have driven, we do not read the car's odometer: rather we use the GPS device that is fitted to the car and which is a more accurate measure.

Speedos and by extension, odometers, can be inaccurate by up to 10% (read more here) and may depend on things such as on how well tuned the car is or the circumference of the tyres.

If you would like to double-check that you have been billed for the right distance, you might like to plot your trip on Google Maps and use that as a secondary source of comparison.
