Refundable membership bond

The refundable membership bond is payable only once for life, is non-taxable, and is fully refundable if you leave the service after one year (3 month’s notice is required for reimbursement).

Long Distance rates

For trips that require traveling a lot of kilometers in a short time or that extend beyond a few days, Communauto offers through all Value plans highly advantageous daily and weekly Long Distance rates.

This pricing formula also allows you to take advantage of cheaper prices per kilometer than the regular rate provided in your Value plan.

Long distance rates are applied automatically upon completion of the trip. Depending on the total kilometres the best rate offered per plan will be applied.

From September to June:

  First day Additional days Per week
Time rate * $34.95 $29.95 $149.75
First 300km 17¢/km
After 300km 13¢/km

In July and August:

  First day Additional days Per week
Time rate * $45.00 $35.00 $195.00
First 300km 17¢/km
After 300km 13¢/km
Gas and insurance included

*A charge of $10/h applies for each additional hour, the maximum being the cost of an extra day.

Family Membership

Join as a family to maximize your savings!

All members of a household living at the same address have the option to register together on a single account, to enjoy great savings on their membership fees (offer available for Value plans members only).

Terms

The refundable membership bond for a household is $750. The monthly fee for each additional driver is $2.50/month, regardless of the plan chosen by the family.

For example, a family of three who chooses to subscribe to the Value Extra plan will have a total monthly invoice of $35 ($30 + $2.50 + $2.50) instead of $90 ($30 x 3), saving more than 60% of the regular monthly cost.

Family members under 19 years old are eligible to join.

People under the age of 19 who wish to join Communauto will be able to do so by joining as a co-member if living at the same address as their parent/guardian at the time of registration.

Quick round-trip preferred rate

Value Plus and Value Extra members automatically enjoy the Open Plus plan rates when calculating the trip price if it works out to be cheaper for them.

For example, if you have to do a quick one hour round trip to drop someone off and drive 60km, this trip would end up costing only $16.95 instead of $22.95 (regular Value Plus rate) or $17.45 (regular Value Extra rate).

Workday Rate

Use a vehicle for the flat rate of $26 per day, with 40km included! This great bargain is exclusive to Value Extra plan members.

Terms

  • $26 per day flat fee.
  • 40km included.
  • 20¢ per additional km.
  • Available Monday to Friday only.
  • Max. of 10 consecutive hours. If your trip exceeds this period, it will be fully charged at your regular plan rates.
  • An unbilled period from midnight to 6am is included (one more hour than when regular Value Extra rates apply). This means that, for example, you can pick up the car at 5pm and return it the next day at 9am (16 hours later) without incurring any extra costs.

Damage Protection Plan

Damage Fee (per event)*Cost per driver
$0$8 per month
$300$6 per month
$600$1 per trip

*Liable or not.

All monthly Damage Protection Plan options, except for the default ($600 Damage Fee for $1 per trip), are a minimum 12 month commitment. You can reduce these costs by taking advantage of the protection offered by the credit card you use to pay your invoices if it includes collision loss damage insurance (cost per driver falls then to $2 per month). Requires a signed Damage Protection Plan Waiver.
