About us

Our Vision

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 in South Melbourne. Since then Flexicar has grown across Australia to include locations in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Hobart.

Why people love Flexicar

“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.”
