Deakin share cars

Deakin Share Cars (Flexicar)

Deakin has share cars located on campus, supplied by Flexicar. Students and staff can use these vehicles.

The Flexicar service is simple – once you’ve created an account online, you just need to book a car via the website or app. Then, simply collect the Flexicar from a designated park and commence your journey. The Flexicar must be returned to the designated Flexicar bays in the car park where you picked it up. Learn more about Flexicar here.

For students

University students can register for a Flexicar account for free. Sign up for a Flexicar account here: http://www.flexicar.com.au/.

A few things to remember:

  • To avoid cancellation fees, you must cancel or amend your booking at least four hours before it starts. If you don’t provide four hours’ notice, you will be charged by Flexicar.
  • If you have any issues with the car – including if you have difficulty with the fuel card – make sure you call 1300 363 780 straight away.

How to make a Flexicar booking

For staff

Staff can use Flexicar for business or personal travel.

To register with Deakin’s business account (for free):

  1. Email your request to deakin-fleet@deakin.edu.au
  2. The team will send you an email invitation with a link to register (this will automatically attribute an account code to your name, so the correct area is charged for your business travel)
  3. Click the link and follow the prompts to sign up.
  4. If you’d like to use Flexicar for personal use, add a personal credit card number and choose this as necessary.
  5. Start reserving Flexicars online or via the app.

At the Waterfront, Flexicar share cars are the preferred option for staff business travel. Deakin fleet vehicles can be booked if no Flexicars are available.

A few things to remember:

  • To avoid cancellation fees, you must cancel or amend your booking at least four hours before it starts. If you don’t provide four hours’ notice, you will be charged by Flexicar.
  • If you have any issues with the car – including if you have difficulty with the fuel card – make sure you call 1300 363 780 straight away (rather than the Campus Services transport team).

Where to park

Park your Flexicar in any white, orange or green bay on campus. They can only be parked in designated Flexicar bays on their home campus (where you picked the car up).
