How to Join

Here are the 4 easy steps to complete your registration.

  1. Eligibility criteria

    Check that you meet the eligibility criteria.

  2. Choice of package

    You can review the available rate plans for your branch on the Rates page, and use our Trip Calculator to compare rates on different trips you think you’ll use carshare for. Generally, if you are driving only once or twice a month or less, then the Open plan will meet your needs. If you are driving more frequently, then one of the Value plans will be more cost-effective, since they offer the best driving rates. No matter which plan you choose however, you can upgrade at any time. Unless you know what your needs are, we recommend that people who can’t decide on a plan should start on the Open plan. This allows you to try the service before committing to a Value plan.

  3. Have the required documents on hand

    Depending on where you live, the required documents vary. Consult the eligibility criteria to find out what you need to register.

  4. Fill out the application form

    Click on the “Subscribe” button on your city’s website and fill out the form.

Still not sure? Think about factors such as:

  • How often you will make trips
  • How many hours each of your trips will be (think of different scenarios)
  • How many kilometers you will drive
  • If you want to have access to the Workday rate (only available with the Value Extra plan)

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, we can help you find the plan that’s right for you.

Do I have to pay a membership bond to become a member?

No. In all branches there are options for joining without a membership bond.

Please note that the membership bond is always refundable if you leave the service. It is therefore not a cost, and it allows you to access the service at rates that will provide you additional savings.

Plans that require the refundable membership bond are also the ones that allow you to take advantage of lower rates. Something to think about!
