Car Next Door

Car Next Door

Car Next Door is a new way to car share in Sydney and Melbourne. It’s Australia’s first neighbour-to-neighbour (or “peer-to-peer”) car sharing network.

It’s cheaper and greener than owning a car, simpler than car rental, and a great way to get wheels when you want them.

How does neighbour-to-neighbour car sharing work?

“Traditional’ car share companies like GoGet, Flexicar, GreenShareCar and Hertz on Demand own a fleet of cars and park them in dedicated car share bays around the city.

Members can book online and hire the cars by the hour or day.

Car Next Door works much like traditional car sharing – you book online, don’t need to meet anyone to exchange keys, and are covered by our $20 million comprehensive insurance policy if you have an accident.

The difference is that the car share vehicles belong to your neighbours, rather than a car sharing company.

Why car share?

Car sharing is cheaper than owning a car and simpler than car rental. The cars are just around the corner and you don’t have to fill in car rental paperwork each time you want to hire a car for a quick trip.

If you’re looking for a low-cost, convenient car hire or car rental option in Sydney or Melbourne, your perfect car may be just around the corner.

You can rent a car for a day from $25, plus 33c/km. This includes fuel, friendly 24/7 phone support, and comprehensive insurance.

Compare the costs of car share with car rental for different types of trips here to find out whether car sharing makes sense for you.

Don’t know your car sharing from your car hire, or your ride sharing from your car rental? This short article explains the difference and will get you up to speed with all of the options for car sharing in Sydney and Melbourne.

Where does Car Next Door’s car share service operate?

Car Next Door operates a car share network in the inner rings of Sydney and Melbourne.

We’re expanding all the time, so keep your eye on our fleet map to check for new car share vehicles near you.

What do people use neighbour-to-neighbour car sharing for?

Because our range of vehicles is as diverse as the cars you see around your neighbourhood, Car Next Door members have plenty of car rental options.

Our members can rent a station wagon for a camping weekend, hire a van to collect visiting family from the airport, or hire a ute to move house. Instead of the hassle of getting to a car rental depot and standing around filling in forms, they can choose a vehicle near them, book online, and access the car instantly.
