Carshare Scheme

    The ANU agreement with Flexicar (Hertz Australia) to provide car sharing services to The ANU commenced 16 April 2021.

    Please see Instructions for Registering a new ANU Account with Flexicar detailed below. You must request Unique Email Invitation Link to access ANU Rates.

     

    ANU Parking and other council parking fees still apply – you must pay for your own public parking where signed – Flexicar vehicles each have a parking permit for their original pod location only; see ‘Fleet on Campus’ section below.

    b.Further Delegate Approval required in order to link Personal Payment Method (while retaining ANU Payment Method).

    Alternatively, public commercial plans are available via Flexicar directly, under Flexicar’s terms and conditions; these are not linked to ANU contract arrangements or special rates.

    Students without an appropriate GLC for Travel Expenses and/or ANU Delegate to approve, are recommended to sign-up to commercial rate plans; see FAQs.

     

    Considerations when Registering

    Please be aware that some sign-ups may trigger an email from Flexicar asking for personal information; this may include:

    • A colour copy of the front and back of your driver's licence
    • A photo of you holding up your driver's licence
    • If you have an International licence, you will need to send a copy of your passport as well
    • If the address on your licence differs to the address on your application, please send a copy to verify your current address. A utility bill or bank statement will suffice.

    This is required by a third-party (such as the Police) to undertake licence checks.

    Please follow all emailed information (links and steps to activate your account); you can call Flexicar Member Care Team any time to follow-up any requirements/status to activate.

    If you require any assistance please call Flexicar Member Care Team on 1300 36 37 80 or email info@flexicar.com.au. Please also review FAQs.

     

    Change of Work Area or GLC

    If you are moving to a new area of business at ANU, or if your area of business is updating General Ledger Codes:

    You must notify ANU UPCO of any changes to your Driver GLC, or employment status at ANU, via contracts.office@anu.edu.au

     

    Bookings

    Bookings can be made via Flexicar app, or on their webpage https://flexicar.com.au/.  Please fine Reference documents linked in sidebar on this page, for PDF guides "How to make bookings on a Flexicar business account" and "How to register and make bookings on a Flexicar business account".

    • Assess the vehicle for damages before your journey begins, and report to Flexicar hotline on 1300 36 37 80 if any damages (i.e. scratches, dents, etc) are noticed on the vehicle. It is recommended that you take photos to send info@flexicar.com.au if required.

    • You no longer need a fob to access Carshare vehicles; simply use the PIN provided by Flexicar, and unlock the car via the windscreen PINpad. All you need for your journey should be kept in the driver’s side door well.
      • TIP: You may be unfamiliar with vehicle make/mode, or other drivers settings; check mirrors, new dashboard, indicators, windscreen de-fog before driving.
      • To lock/unlock the car during your journey, you may use physical keys kept inside the vehicle, or type in your PIN again using the windscreen PINpad.

    • Please note, all vehicles must be returned with at least a quarter of a tank full of fuel; instructions are kept in the driver’s side door well. The fuel type should be marked on the fuel card; if unsure which fuel to use, please call Flexicar hotline before proceeding.

    • Be sure to return all accessories/keys to the driver’s side door well at the end of your booking.

    • Bookings can be extended by 15minute intervals using the Flexicar app (if the car is not already booked by another user), or by calling the Flexicar hotline; preventing over-use charges.

    • ANU and other parking fees still apply – you must pay for your own public parking where signed, including ANU Campus. Keep receipts for Business Travel. Flexicars have a permit for their original pod location only.
