Trip fees policy

A trip’s total cost is made up of these elements: 

  • Trip Price: This is a vehicle’s listed rate multiplied by the trip length. Each host sets their own standard daily rate. 

  • Trip Fee: The trip fees varies depending upon the age of the driver and the trip price. 

  • Processing Fee: a 2.5% processing fee is charged to cover for payment provider costs.


Overall, total trip cost is generally 30-40% cheaper compared to traditional rental companies.
