Car Next Door Community Plan

Car Next Door was started as a way for neighbours to rent out their cars to people in their community – empowering them to reduce waste and create cleaner, greener, better neighbourhoods.

If your not-for-profit or community group shares our passion for sustainability, we’re here to help you achieve your mission with the free Car Next Door Community Plan..

How Car Next Door helps the environment

You bring the drive, we bring the ride

With our Community Plan, you’ll have access to thousands of affordable cars for rent with no booking fees and our lowest possible damage and loss liability.

You could use your free Community Plan to…

Book a van to move
across town

Borrow a car for extra
carpool seats

Rent a convertible for
an awareness parade

… or whatever else helps you do awesome things for your community.

Frequently asked questions

The Community Plan allows you to borrow vehicles with no booking fees, and if you are responsible for damage, the most you’ll have to pay is a $500 Damage and Loss Liability (subject to exclusions).

As part of our Community Plan, we want to see how your organisation is using everyday people’s vehicles to help spread positive impact in your area. We'd love for you to share on your social media, blog or newsletter how your organisation is using Car Next Door and list us as a partner on your website. Learn more about the terms and conditions of our Community Plan.

You can! However our focus is on organisations that are contributing to positive changes within the local community. So you can be a international organisation, but your impact needs to have an local focus.

We’ll provide up to five (5) free Community Plan memberships per organisation. All drivers will need to be approved as Car Next Door members - you can join for free. Once your membership application is approved, we’ll apply the free Community Plan to your account.

Unfortunately not - you’ll still need to pay for your trips (including petrol, tolls and any fines or associated trip costs).

You can get an overview of borrowing cars with Car Next Door and sign up on our website, or get answers to hundreds of questions in our Help Centre.
