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. 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.
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. Since then Flexicar has grown across Australia to include locations in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Hobart.
“As consultants in the construction industry, Flexicar has provided our business with the ability to service our clients on a needs basis.
The easy to use booking system is practical and has enabled our consultants to conveniently book a car whenever they need to go out to site or attend a meeting. The accessibility of their cars in the CBD has allowed us to better service our clients, which has been great!
Flexicar has been great to deal with, offering great corporate rates whilst also providing competitive rates for personal use.”

“Deakin University has been associated with Flexicar for several years now with a small number of Flexicars located at our Melbourne Burwood Campus and also our Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus.
These vehicles are well utilised throughout the working week by staff for University business and outside those hours they have proven to be very popular with our students and the general public. Discounted student rental rates are encouraging resident students to consider leaving their cars at home which has reduced on campus parking demand.
Our experience and feedback has been very positive and we have also benefited from fleet administration efficiencies.”
