How Does HOURCAR Work?

HOURCAR is easy to use.

1. Join

Become an HOURCAR member. You need to be at least 18 years old and have a relatively clean driving record (find out more) and there is a one-time $50 fee for us to process your individual application. Student, Household, and Business members have their own fee structures. University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff have a special plan, too.

2. Reserve

Reserve any HOURCAR online or by phone, 24 hours a day.

3. Drive

HOURCAR has no paperwork and no lines. Just tap your “fob” on the reader and the car unlocks and is ready to drive in seconds. Forget everything you know about conventional car rentals. Your HOURCAR member plan always covers gas, maintenance, and insurance.

HOURCAR costs $6 or $8 per hour and 25¢ per mile— click here to find out more about our rate plans, which also feature daily rates and night-owl specials. Signing up is simple: fill out an application online and we should be able to approve your application and get you behind the wheel in a few days!
