What's covered

The AoG Rental vehicles contract will include three categories.

  • General Rentals and Light Commercial Rentals (available from 3 March 2019)
  • Less-Than-One-Day Rentals (available later in the year).

Each category will feature:

  • booking and managing domestic rental vehicle hire
  • competitive and transparent pricing, applied at point-of-sale
  • competitively-priced insurance options
  • account management
  • reporting.

What’s not covered

International hire rates.

How it works

Agencies can rent vehicles from any provider on the panel that meets their travel needs. To enable full flexibility, agencies can complete a Services Order with each of the panel providers.

Where your agency requires a secondary procurement process, a pricing calculator and services comparison guide are available under the contract resources section to streamline this process. Where no secondary procurement process is required, a Services Order will need to be signed with every provider that the agency wishes to rent vehicles from.

Features and benefits

The rental vehicles contract will offer:

  • low emission vehicles priced comparably to petrol and diesel alternatives
  • increased savings for agencies compared to the previous contract
  • a wider range of light commercial vehicles through the four panel providers eg utility vehicles, minibuses, cargo vans, and trucks that require a car licence only.

Benefits of the AoG travel pricing model include:

  • pre-negotiated pricing, terms and conditions which means agencies do not have to run a full procurement process to determine a preferred supplier or sub-panel
  • ability to book with one or multiple panel suppliers to best meet your agencies needs
  • removal or reduction of fees for airport-pick up, one-way hire, and delivery and collection for improved agency savings
  • free consolidated invoicing for improved contract management and time savings:
    • opt for monthly invoicing with a breakdown of charges and services
    • or use a TMS to handle invoicing.
  • a choice of booking methods:
    • direct with supplier via website, mobile application or online booking tool
    • via a TMS supplier.

Savings and costs


Agencies who participate in the rental vehicles contract don't need to go through a full procurement process of their own, which saves time, effort and cost. Estimates show participating agencies save an average of 7-40% compared to market rates through the first contract.

The calculators in the contract resources section (agency login required) provide high-level pricing comparisons across Providers' AoG daily hire rates.


Most AoG contracts include an administration fee. This fee is a simple, effective and transparent way of recovering the cost of developing, sourcing, implementing and managing AoG contracts.

Rates in this contract include an administration fee of 1.5% of the total daily hire spend. It is not applied to extras such as one-way fees, pick-up and delivery fees, refuelling or accessories.

Suppliers collect the administration fee and pass it on to MBIE - agencies don't need to make any payments to MBIE.
