FLEX perks

- 30 minutes free blocking time

Once you’ve located a FLEX vehicle using our mobile app, you can block it free of charge for up to 30 minutes, giving you time to reach it. You can block the same vehicle one additional time if you do not access it within the first 30 minutes.

- 20 minutes credit if you are refueling

A time credit of 20 minutes will be applied for any trip of an hour or less billed at the FLEX vehicle rate if it costs at least $20 (taxes included) to fill up the tank.

In the case of a trip of less than 20 minutes, the maximum credit will be equivalent to the length of the trip.

- Up to 15 minutes to clear snow in the winter

During winter, a credit of up to 15 minutes is applied to your trip for snow removal. Your billed trip time will begin when you start driving, or 15 minutes after you unlock the vehicle, whichever comes first.

The snow removal credit is applied regardless of the weather. If you use more than one FLEX vehicle in a day, the credit applies to each vehicle used. If you happen to use the same vehicle again during the day, the credit will only apply once.

Access to FLEX vehicles at the round-trip vehicle price of your Open Plus or Value plan if cheaper

This extraordinary perk is exclusive to Open Plus and Value plans members. If cheaper, any trip made with a FLEX vehicle will automatically be charged at the most economical rate (cost of 40¢ or 35¢/min, $12/hr, etc. compared to the cost of the same trip calculated at the round-trip vehicle price of your Open Plus or Value plan). This comparison will be made no matter the duration of the trip, however a minimum of 4 hours will be charged if round-trip vehicle rates are applied (i.e $2.45 x 4 = $9.80 on Value Extra plan).

Here is an example, using Value Extra plan rates:

  • If you use a FLEX car for 2 hours and drive 20km, you will be charged only $14.60 ($2.45/hr x 4 + 24¢/km X 20). The regular FLEX rate would have been $24 ($12/hr x 2).
  • The benefit is even greater if you keep the vehicle longer. For example, for 3 hours/20km, the price for the trip remains $14.60, versus $36 ($12/hr x 3).

Please note: the Long Distance rate does not apply to FLEX vehicles. Try out your own scenarios and see how much you can save with this advantageous feature of the Open Plus and the Value plans.

Long Distance rate (round-trip vehicles only)

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.

Depending on the duration of the trip and the total number of kilometers traveled, the lowest price between the "Local" rate (the regular rate of your Value plan) or the "Long Distance" rate is applied automatically.

  First day Additionnal day Per week
Time rate * $34.95 $29.95 $149.75
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.

Terms

Long distance rates are reserved to any one of the Value plans.

They do not apply to trips made with FLEX vehicles, even if the trip ends up being charged at round-trip rates (see Access to FLEX vehicles at the round-trip vehicle price of your Open Plus or Value plan if cheaper”).

promo ld

Choose a vehicle identified by a sun and save even more!

To locate these vehicles, simply select the option "Promotion Sun". Then choose a station identified with the sun icon.

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 additional fee for each additional driver is $3.33/month or $40/year, depending on the Value 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 $36.66 instead of $90 ($30/month X 3), saving more than 60% of the regular 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 $15.85 instead of $21.85 (regular Value Plus rate) or $16.85 (regular Value Extra rate).

This perk also applies when using a FLEX vehicle, if the trip ends up being charged at round-trip rates (see Access to FLEX vehicles at the round-trip vehicle price of your Open Plus or Value plan if cheaper”).

Workday Rate (round-trip vehicles only)

Use a vehicle for the flat rate of $19.20 per day, with 40km included! This great bargain is exclusive to Value Extra plan members and only applies on trips made with Station-Based vehicles. It does not apply to trips made with FLEX vehicles, even if the trip ends up being charged at round-trip rates (see Access to FLEX vehicles at the round-trip vehicle price of your Open Plus or Value plan if cheaper”).

Conditions

  • $19.20 per day flat fee.
  • 40km included.
  • 24¢ 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.

FLEX Unlimited Pass

A different way to use Communauto FLEX vehicles. This exceptional offer lets you take advantage of 30 free minutes of driving on an unlimited number of trips for the whole month (100km included per trip, 20¢ per km after 100km). Learn more >
