To borrow it, go to the Car Next Door website, sign up and book my car!

My car is covered by Car Next Door's insurance, so I can't rent it outside the platform or it won't be covered. Sorry!

  1. Find my car: Look for cars in SUBURB to find mine.
  1. Book my car: You can look at my car’s calendar to see when it’s free to borrow. You don’t need to message me on here to book, you can do it instantly all through the website or app.
  2. Pick it up! When it’s time for your booking, the Car Next Door app will give you all the instructions you need to pick up the car.
