Never worry about having to pay for fuel - every vehicle has a fuel card to use during your booking. The fuel card inside the vehicle can be used at any Z energy, Caltex or Challenge petrol stations.

When booking a vehicle by the day you get 150 free kilometres for your booking.
If you travel over 150 kilometres there is an additional charge of $0.25 per kilometre.

The booking cost, free kilometres and if there are any additional kilometres charges will all be outlined in your booking confirmation email.

Fine and Fee Schedule

1

Less than a 1/4 tank of fuel

We ask that all members return the vehicle with a minimum ¼ tank of fuel as to not inconvenience the next member.

If the next member to use the car sends a complaint with evidence, you will get a $25 fine and the inconvenienced member will receive a credit.
2

Returning the car late

If you're running late for a booking, this may affect other Cityhoppers - So it's really important that you let us know as soon as possible. As long as you extend your booking or give us reasonable notice that you are running late you won't incur penalties.

If you return the vehicle past the booking time and have not notified Cityhop, you will incur a $25 fee in addition to having to pay for the extra time you used the car.
3

Not returning a vehicle to its pod

All Cityhop bookings are return trips. You must return your car to its home location at the end of your booking. If you’re unable to return the vehicle back to the allocated pod because another car is parked there or some other obstruction, please call 0800 2 CITYHOP with the new location. We will then tell the next member where the car is.

If you don’t notify us of the location, the next member won’t know where to find the car. If they are inconvenienced by this, you will get a $25 fine, which will be passed on to the inconvenienced member. Returning the car to a different pod, or deliberately leaving the car elsewhere, will incur a minimum $95 call-out fee, to cover the cost of our Fleet Team returning the car to the pod. If the car is left in an area outside of our network you may also be liable for all costs associated with the recovery of the car.
4

Tyres

If a tyre is damaged during your booking you are liable for the cost of replacing the tyre.
5

Cleanliness

We understand that cars get dirty with everyday use, which is why our Fleet Team regularly attend to all our vehicles.

However, if you leave a car that is more dirty than everyday use, so dirty that the next member doesn’t want to use the car, you’ll receive a $65 fine. This is to cover the cost of a special call-out clean, and to compensate the inconvenienced member.
6

Animals in cars

You can take an animal in any Cityhop car, so long as it is in a suitable pet carrier. Whether a car is pet-friendly or not, it is your responsibility to ensure the car is clean at the end of your booking.

If a car is not suitable because of animal-related uncleanliness or messiness, the responsible member is liable for a $85 fine. This is to cover a special clean of the vehicle, and to compensate the inconvenienced member.
7

Smoking in cars

Smoking in Cityhop cars is not allowed. A $250 fine applies for your first offence, but your membership may be terminated on repeat offences.

Taking a car without a booking

Please always make a booking before using a Cityhop car, and ensure that you use the car you made a booking for. If you drive a car you don’t have a booking for, you will be charged:

1. A minimum $25 per day

2. A $25 fine for each inconvenienced member

3. Usage rates and kilometres for the car that is used, in addition to the rates for the car that is booked (if applicable)

You may also be charged a call-out fee if you are responsible for a car needing Fleet Team or roadside assistance after your booking. For example, parking a car over a driveway, leaving the lights on so the battery is flat, or returning the car with no fuel in the tank.

Infringements like unpaid parking fines and speeding fines come through to us from local authorities and the police.
