1) Our Booking Service
We offer our Site as a place where you can compare, obtain information about, make bookings and purchases for rental vehicle and other travel services offered by selected third party providers, including car rental suppliers, other aggregators of vehicle rental and distributors of rental vehicle excess insurance (“Providers”).
Our obligation to you is to make bookings on your behalf. We are not ourselves a provider of vehicle rentals or rental vehicle excess insurance and have no control over the services supplied by Providers. We do not endorse or recommend any Providers.
To make a booking for a car rental you must complete our booking form. Once we receive your booking form and payment (if required), we, or the Provider, will confirm your booking by emailing you a confirmation voucher and receipt. If you have made a payment to us at the time of booking a rental vehicle you will receive a receipt from one of our related trading companies, Vroom Vroom Vroom Pty Ltd, V2B Pte Ltd or Vroom Vroom Vroom Inc.
We receive a commission from Providers for services booked or purchased through the Site. Our commercial relationships with Providers, including the payment of remuneration, the type of remuneration paid, the basis on which commission is paid and the variance in commission per sale, do not affect the display of rental vehicle search results on the Site.
2) Provider’s Terms and Conditions
Before completing our booking form, please make sure that you have read the Provider’s terms and conditions, including their qualifications and eligibility requirements, and for rental vehicle excess insurance, their Product Disclosure Statement and Financial Services Guide. All bookings made on your behalf, or purchases of rental vehicle excess insurance or other goods and services, are subject to the terms and conditions imposed by Providers.
When you pick up your vehicle, you will be required to sign a rental agreement with the Provider. Your rental and use of the vehicle will be governed by the terms of the rental agreement and any other documentation or information provided to you by the Provider at the time you pick up your vehicle. The rental agreement is between you and the Provider and we will not be liable to you or to any third party in relation to the Provider's rental agreement or any other documentation provided to you by the Provider at the time of pick up.
Please provide us with feedback on your experience with a Provider by contacting us at https://www.vroomvroomvroom.com.au/contact-us/.
3) Change of Mind Policy - Car Rental
You may cancel your Vroom rental vehicle booking at any time by following the instructions in your booking confirmation email, or by contacting us at https://www.vroomvroomvroom.com.au/contact-us/.
Bookings without pre-payment
Where you have made a booking which did not require payment at the time of booking, no cancellation fees will apply.
Where you have paid us a deposit for your booking we will refund your deposit in full if you cancel more than 48 hours before the rental pick up date and time, specified in the booking confirmation email.
Subject to your refund rights under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (“Australian Consumer Law”), no refund will be made where:
- you cancel your booking which was confirmed less than 48 hours in advance of the booking pick up date and time,
- you cancel your booking less than 48 hours in advance of the booking pick up date and time,
- you have picked up your rental,
- you fail to collect your vehicle at the pick up date and time with all necessary documentation and a credit card with enough available funds for the rental vehicle’s security deposit, or
- you do not meet the Provider’s eligibility or other rental requirements and the Provider refuses to provide you with a rental on that basis.
Third party vehicle rental aggregator bookings
If you have made a booking via our Site with a third party rental vehicle aggregator, including CarTrawler or Motorhome Republic, the terms and conditions which apply to cancellations and refunds for that booking are contained in the Provider’s terms and conditions accepted by you at the time of booking.
Certain statutory warranties under the Australian Consumer Law will be implied for the benefit of consumers. Nothing in these Terms is intended to exclude or restrict the application of such laws but Vroom does not give any guarantee or warranties or make any representation of any kind, express or implied, with respect to provision of services or use of the Site outside the Australian Consumer Law.
When you use the Site, you also interact with websites, products and services that are made available by third parties including Providers. We do not control, vet or curate third party websites or content, and these do not form part of our Site.
We do not warrant or represent that the information or representations displayed on or via the Site by a third party, including without limitation:
- fitness or suitability of any product or service advertised;

- vehicle insurance,
(together, “Booking Information”) is accurate, complete, relevant or up-to-date.
While we endeavour to display the correct Booking Information, you acknowledge and agree that Booking Information is controlled and provided solely by Providers, and we do not and cannot verify its accuracy or completeness.
A secure payment gateway is used to process all transactions and card details; we don’t store these details. We do not give any warranty or make any representation regarding the strength or effectiveness of the secure payment gateway.
You acknowledge and agree that our and Providers’ systems are not free of faults, and Site downtime may occur. Sites may become unavailable due to planned or unplanned maintenance or circumstances beyond our control, including without limitation acts of third party telecommunications service suppliers or acts of God.

7) Limited Liability
We have no liability for the services provided by Providers and other third parties. Your legal rights in connection with the provision of vehicle rental, insurance and other products and services are against the specific Provider and, except to the extent a problem is caused by fault on our part, are not against us. Specifically, if for any reason (excluding fault on our part) any Provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted, your rights are against that Provider and not against us.
Nothing in these Terms is intended to limit your rights under the Australian Consumer Law, including your right to remedies for a failure of our service to meet a Consumer Guarantee. When we say “Consumer Guarantee” we mean the consumer guarantees prescribed by the Australian Consumer Law.
If our service fails to meet an applicable Consumer Guarantee we will provide you with a remedy as required by the Australian Consumer Law.
Except for liability for a failure by us to comply with the Australian Consumer Law and to the maximum extent permitted by law,
- we do not accept any liability to you for any indirect or consequential loss, including loss of profits, revenue or opportunity, lost business or savings and wasted expenditure, and
- our total liability to you in relation to our service or your use of our Site will not exceed the greater of AUD 10, or the dollar amount of the payment we have received from you in relation to your booking or purchase.
8) Governing Law
These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Queensland, Australia. The parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Queensland.
No delay or failure to take action under these Terms will constitute a waiver unless expressly waived in writing, signed by our duly authorized representative, and no single waiver will constitute a continuing or subsequent waiver.
