Why subscribe with Carbar?

Why subscribe with Carbar?

Less hassle, more time

With a vehicle subscription service, you’ll eliminate many of the hassles that come with ownership. No more renewal notices, no more finding a day to take the car to the garage – Carbar takes care of all of it for you.

Save money

Depreciation, on-road costs, loan repayments - a car costs you every week, every kilometre. Subscriptions are not only competitive, in many cases, they’re more affordable than owning and running a vehicle.

No commitments

Drive what you need without the hassle of buying and selling. Just give us two weeks’ notice to swap cars or stop your subscription.

Serviced and maintained

All scheduled servicing and maintenance is included in the weekly subscription, meaning no “service” surprises for you.

Complete peace of mind

All subscriptions come with comprehensive insurance, 24/7 roadside assistance and your car is always covered under a warranty - manufacturer or Carbar’s warranty.

It’s your car 24/7

You don’t have to book or share our rides. The car is yours for as long as you subscribe to it. *

^ You can arrange to pick up your car or have it delivered to you within 50kms of Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.

* In certain circumstances we may need to swap your car (e.g. if there is a maintenance or other issue) – in which case we will, subject to availability, try to replace the car with an equivalent car. See terms and conditions for more details.

Costs of running a car

Owning and operating a car is expensive. Car subscription isn’t just the more flexible way to drive, it’s the more affordable way. Depreciation has the biggest impact followed by on-road costs such as dealer delivery, stamp duty, rego and insurance. Then there’s loan interest repayments, servicing and tyres. Bundling all of these running costs of a car into a single weekly fee could save you big, eliminating some of the biggest expenses associated with ownership.

“A car is negative equity. You owe the bank for something that’s depreciating every day. With Carbar, I eliminated the debt. I did the math. I’m saving money this way, and driving a European vehicle that I would have never thought to buy myself.”

David, Accountant, NSW

* Costs are collected from RACV’s Driving Your Dollars survey 2019.

^ On-roads - includes Stamp, Registration, Insurance & Roadside assist
