Frequently asked questions
International drivers are welcome to rent cars in Canberra. You just need to hold a full unrestricted driver licence from your home country, with a formal English translation if it is in another language.
Our pricing works slightly differently from traditional car rental companies. When you borrow a car with Car Next Door, you pay for both the time you have the car and the distance you drive, as well as your damage cover and booking fee.
Car Next Door trips are covered through Mobility Mutual - a member-owned mutual risk protection fund that’s specifically designed for our car-sharing community. Each time you borrow a car with Car Next Door you will be able to select the excess option which best suits your needs.
With Car Next Door you can access hundreds of cars parked on streets and in car parks all over Canberra. There’s probably one within a few minutes walk from your home!
No credit card? No problem. Once you’ve joined up as a free member to our community, you can hire a car without a credit card. We accept any Visa or Mastercard debit or credit card - just make sure it has the necessary funds available! Note that all members will be charged a $150 deposit on their first booking, which will be returned after the trip is completed.
