Flex Plan


Interested in an HOURCAR membership but unsure of paying the monthly or annual membership fee? The new Flex rate plan is a great option for you! Without the commitment and cost associated with a monthly or annual plan, you can be assured that you will have access to an HOURCAR when you need it.

Ready to sign up? Anyone who is 18 or older and has at least one year of driving experience is eligible for HOURCAR! 

Flex Rate Plan

$0 annual/monthly membership fee

$25 Application Fee

$12.75 per hour

$9.50 per hour at Increased Access Hubs

$0.40 per mile

$50 Annual Damage Fee Waiver (Optional)

Costs for Current Members

Current members wishing to switch to the Flex plan will need to pay a one-time administrative fee of $15.

Should I switch?

If you’re currently on a monthly or annual plan with us, you will get a better deal staying on your existing plan if you use HOURCAR at least three times per year.

Other advantages for monthly and annual members are:

* Better rates at increased access hubs

* Off-peak rates (12a-6a)

* Access to 24-hour reservations at daily rates

“With HOURCAR, we don’t have to pay for insurance and gas – it turns out to be far less expensive than owning a car.”

“If you want the convenience of a car without the responsibility that comes with owning a car – HOURCAR is a great choice.”

“It’s nice to have options – we can reserve a truck to run to the furniture store or a hatchback for a large grocery haul or a trip to the dog park.”

“I use HOURCAR to help the Minneapolis Art Lending Library safely move artists work. It’s a great option for budget-tight organizations”
