Flexicar launches at Melbourne and Canberra airport
The membership based car sharing service Flexicar has installed eight Flexicar pods at Melbourne Airport and two Flexicar pods at Canberra Airport, providing travellers with a convenient alternative to public transport and taxis.
Members of Flexicar can easily book a vehicle for one hour up to five days, collecting it from the newly installed Flexicar pods (designated car parking spaces) at Melbourne and Canberra Airports. At the end of the booking, customers simply need to return the vehicle to the same pod.
The service provides travellers with the use of a car for short periods of time inclusive of fuel, a generous kilometre allocation and damage cover*, with the added benefit of no waiting time when the vehicle is collected and returned.
Damien Shaw, Country Manager, Hertz Australia, said: “The launch of Flexicar at airports allows us to continue to provide a transport solution to business and leisure travellers. The innovative service will see members save valuable time and enjoy the freedom of flexible hire periods.
“More and more people are seeing the value of car sharing and we’ve seen our membership base continue to grow as more renters recognise the ease of using Flexicar.”
Members of Flexicar can choose to rent from a range of vehicles, from standard hatchbacks to SUVs, all available to book online or via the Flexicar app. Collecting the vehicle is simple as users are provided with a PIN 15 minutes before the rental time, which is then entered into a PIN-pad located on the driver’s side windshield of the car, unlocking the vehicle. The keys will be in the vehicle for users. On return, the vehicle is simply parked in the same pod, with the keys remaining inside and the car locked via the PIN and pad system.
Flexicar pods at Melbourne Airport are located near Hertz at the car park in Terminal 4. The Flexicar pods at Canberra Airport are located within the Hertz location in bays G1 and G2.
