“For carsharing to become a mainstream public transport option for urban Australians; providing a cheap, green and easy alternative to car ownership.”
Flexicar is a membership-based carshare company founded by a group of university friends in 2004. Led by Monique Conheady, it began as a pilot project called Flo Carshare and received small business grants from Shell’s LiveWIRE program, the Victorian Government and the City of Melbourne.
Monique ‘discovered’ the carsharing concept in the 1990s while she was visiting a friend in Boston, USA. She became determined that inner-city Melburnians should have convenient, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable access to a car without needing to personally own one.
In October 2006, Flo became ‘Flexicar’ and since then it has won numerous environmental and small business awards. Hertz Australia purchased Flexicar in December 2010 and continues to operate Flexicar’s services from their office on St Kilda Rd in Melbourne.
We're always out and about meeting clients and partners, so for us, fast access to affordable and flexible transport is an absolute must. Flexicar give us the constant access we need, without the high price tag. We've saved a large amount on transport that we can now put toward other important aspects of our business. The ease in which we can use Flexicar to book and manage our travel is insurmountable to our expectations - the online booking process is efficient and uncomplicated. We look forward to continuing with Flexicar in the future.
Flexicar is a highly valued corporate partner of Bicycle Network Network and our Bupa Around the Bay and Ride2Work Events.

Corporate Sales Manager
I use Flexicar for all my client and consultant meetings, it’s an extremely reliable and affordable resource for our company.
Our staff at Donald Cant Watts Corke regularly use Flexicar. The flexibility in booking a car online and having the car available in such close proximity to our building is so convenient.
The staff also love the convenience and as a company we like that we don’t have to worry about owning a car. We previously owned a car but having Flexicar available for us made our decision to sell the car and save on costs easy.
We are a regular user of Flexicar and look forward to continuing to use their excellent service.
