For casual driving in Melbourne, Flexicar has the best deals in town: no joining fees or monthly fees, just a once-a-year $49 membership fee which includes comprehensive damage cover and roadside assist. Every hourly Flexicar booking includes unlimited kms and the optional $0 excess damage-cover is perfect for extra peace of mind. Rates on our casual, no-commitment Intro plan start at $13.50 per hour all-inclusive for our brand new discount cars (like the Suzuki Swift). To get even cheaper hourly and daily rates choose one of the prepaid credit plans: Light, Moderate or Regular.
Intro: Perfect when you’re a first time carsharer wanting to give it a try, a commitment-phobe or you’re just unsure how often you’ll drive.
Our Intro plan is the perfect ‘no-commitment’ option with no prepaid credit, no joining fee or monthly fees and if you decide it’s not right for you, there are no plan change or cancellation costs.
Light: Perfect when you use public transport, enjoy taking a trip or two and want a car to do your weekly shop.
Moderate: Perfect when you’re a weekend tripper, need a second car for work or to drop the kids off at school.
Regular: Perfect when you’re always on the road, whether for work or fun, and need the best value for money.

Standard Hatch and Sedan (e.g. Hyundai i30 or Corolla) cost $1 more per hour or $10 more a day than economy cars, prestige hatch (e.g Audi A3) costs $4 more per hour or $30 more per day than economy cars and prestige SUV (e.g. Audi A5) cost $5 more per hour or $40 more a day. Overnight bookings between 11pm and 7am are charged at a special rate but are considered daily bookings and therefore will be charged with a kilometre allowance depending on the plan.
