A guide on travelling domestically during COVID-19.
The AoG Rental vehicles contract includes three categories.
Each category features:
International hire rates.
Commercial solutions requiring agencies to provide car parks and/or charging infrastructure to receive the service.
General rentals and light commercial rentals:
Agencies can rent vehicles from any provider on the panel that meets their travel needs. To enable full flexibility, agencies can complete a service 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 service order will need to be signed with every provider that the agency wishes to rent vehicles from.
The less-than-one-day rentals category offers a mobility solution that provides minute/hourly/daily and evening vehicle rentals. It’s also referred in the market as car-sharing. It can be an alternative form of transportation to a taxi, uber and a potential replacement to your fleet vehicles.
In this category the providers offer an all-inclusive rental vehicles solution with the rate including fuel/electricity charge, parking, and vehicle maintenance.
There are two main operation models for this category: the round trip model and the free floating model. The round trip model means that hirers pick up and return a rental car from a designated car park. The free floating model means that a hirer picks up a rental car from point A and returns the car to point B. It’s essentially a one way trip approach.
Agencies can rent vehicles from any provider on the panel that meets their travel needs. To enable full flexibility, agencies can complete a service order with each of the panel providers. As it’s an emerging market, each provider’s offerings are different. Please refer to services comparison guide and agency guide which are available under the contract resources section to provide further support.
Here are two examples of how agencies are using the service:

Benefits of the AoG travel pricing model include:
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 contract.
The calculators in the contract resources section (agency login required) provide high-level pricing comparisons across providers' AoG daily hire rates.
General rentals, light commercial rentals and less-than-one-day rentals:
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 hire spend.This is not applied to extras e.g. one-way fees, pick-up and delivery fees, refuelling or accessories, in the general rentals and light commercial rentals categories.
Providers collect the administration fee and pass it on to MBIE - agencies don't need to make any payments to MBIE.
