Rate Plan

You must choose if you would like the waiver.
All members are covered by our comprehensive insurance policy for all “not-at-fault” damages. Members causing “at-fault” damage to an Hourcar be will be assessed a damage fee of up to $2,000. A damage fee waiver can be applied to waive a member’s damage fee. A damage fee waiver costs $50 plus tax and is valid for up to one year. Coverage for additional drivers on shared accounts is $10 plus tax per driver. A damage fee waiver is included in the price of the Winter Plan. We strongly recommend that all members purchase a damage fee waiver annually.
