A trip’s total cost is made up of these elements:

  • Trip Price: This is a vehicle’s listed rate multiplied by the trip length. Each host sets their own standard daily rate.
  • Trip Fee: The trip fees vary depending upon the age of the driver, the car model and the trip price. 
  • Processing fees: 4% of Trip price & fee (to cover credit & debit card costs)
  • Overall, total trip cost is generally 30-40% cheaper compared to traditional rental companies.


Example A:

Host decides the rental price of his car at $80 per day. A guest, aged 30 years wants to rent the car for a day. The breakup of the trip cost would be as follows:


Daily Trip price:         $80

Daily Trip fees:          $20

Processing fees: $4

Total trip cost: $104

The guest pays $100, the host receives $80 and Drive lah receives $20. (for 24 hours rental)

Example B:

Host decides the rental price of his car at $80 per day. The guest aged 23 years wants to rent the car. He needs to pay a young driver fee due to higher insurance cost. The breakup of the trip cost would be as follows:



Daily Trip Price:        $80

Daily Trip fees:         $28

Processing fees: 4.3


The guest pays $112.3

Example C:

Host decides the rental price of his car at $55 per day. A guest aged 26 years wants to rent the car. The breakup of the trip cost would be as follows:

Daily Trip Price: $55

Daily Trip fees: $17
