How does GoGet car share work?
GoGet car share is more convenient than car rental, cheaper than owning a car, and more flexible than both. The quick version is that GoGet gives you access to more cars, for less dollars.
But how does it work? Let’s get stuck into it.
How Car Sharing works: A primer
Instead of owning an expensive and time consuming car, car share gives you access to thousands of cars when you need one. Book a hatchback, SUV, van, or other car share vehicle for as little as an hour.
GoGet share cars are parked all over Australia. With almost 3,000 cars in 5 cities, there’s probably one near you! Maybe in your building or on your street!
GoGet also pays for fuel, insurance and rego, and maintenance. So, you pay for a car when you actually use one. That saves you money and gives you even more options than owning a car.
GoGet car share in four steps (and a video)
Find cars near you with the GoGet app or on our website. Book just the hours you need or for a full day, and start driving straight away!
Find your car, hold the smart card to the reader on the windscreen, and the doors will unlock. The ignition key is near the steering wheel.
Just return the car to its pod with at least a quarter tank of fuel after your trip. We pay for petrol – there’s a fuel card in the car to pay for it.
The GoGet Fleet
Car share members have access to a huge variety of cars. Instead of the same car every week, use the car best suited for your trip (or best suited for your mood!).
Here are some of the most popular cars in our fleet:
Toyota Hiace Van
KIA Carnival People Mover
BMW 220i Convertible
We also have Mercedes A180s, Audi A1s and A3s, Hyundai i30s, and Toyota RAV4s. Our fleet of hybrid vehicles is also growing every year. Any GoGet member can book one of out Toyota Prius Cs, or our Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid Outlander.
“I really appreciate having access to different vehicles, on demand, at a reasonable price.” – Catrin, Bundoora Victoria

The six golden rules of GoGet
For GoGet to work well for everyone, we have a few rules that members need to follow. They’re about protecting you, and to make GoGet a great experience for everyone.
Inspect for damage
Before starting your booking, do a quick check for damage. If you find any, check if it’s been reported on the Vehicle Damage Check Form. Call us to report anything not listed.
Leave ¼ tank of fuel
Petrol is on us, so use the fuel card to fill up if you’re running low. The card can be found with the car key, and the PIN is in your booking confirmation email or the GoGet app.
Carry your card
Keep your smart card on you – GoGet cars lock themselves after being inactive for a little while. If you ever lock yourself out of a car, you can always call us for help.
Keep it clean
Tidy up at the end of your trip. Take rubbish with you, brush off any dirt or mess, and take all your things. If the car needs a proper clean, let us know. All our cars are smoke-free.
Return on time
If you’re going to be late, you can extend your booking online, or by using the GoGet App. Refer to your booking confirmation email if you can’t park in the car’s dedicated pod.
Turn everything off
Before getting out of the car, make sure the key is out of the ignition, all the lights are off, and the doors and windows are closed. Then lock the car by swiping your smart card.
