When do you take payment?

When will I be charged for my membership fee?

If your driving plan has a monthly membership fee, we automatically charge your account each month on the anniversary date of your membership. (If you change your driving plan after you join, that date will become your new renewal date.)

If your driving plan has an annual membership fee (this will only apply to members who have been with us before May 2017), we automatically charge your account each year on the anniversary date of your membership. (If you change your driving plan after you join, that date will become your new renewal date.)

When will I be charged for my reservation?

Depending on your membership, reservations may be charged when you book, at the end of the reservation, or at the end of the month. (These differences are related to billing only and won't impact your selection of cars or types of trips.) Visit your account page to see details for your membership and billing cycle. If there are any additional charges during your trip, then we will add them at the end of your reservation.
