KINTO LAUNCHES CAR OWNERSHIP ALTERNATIVE WITHOUT THE LONG-TERM COMMITMENT WITH KINTO FLEX
March 30, 2023
Car rental innovator KINTO has today announced the nationwide launch of KINTO Flex, a new subscription-based, all-inclusive car rental plan which offers Australians the benefits of car ownership, without the long-term commitment.
KINTO Flex allows users to take freedom to the next level by providing the benefits of car ownership on a monthly subscription basis. With the option of booking a car to suit the individual’s needs across over 160 national locations, shortening or lengthening the subscription and paying by the month, KINTO has created a car service that truly adapts to the user’s lifestyle.
Whether in need of a zippy hatchback to run errands or an SUV for the family – KINTO’s range of majority hybrid vehicles will get users from A to B in comfort and style.
Users pay a monthly duration fee plus a per kilometre fee that is inclusive of fuel, insurance, 24/7 roadside assistance, maintenance, and servicing1 – no sign-up fee, no security deposit or establishment fee. Drive as little or as much as needed with no excess km or additional driver fees.4
Service is all managed through KINTO’s purpose-built smartphone app. From sign up and picking a vehicle, to unlocking the car and hitting the road – enjoy fully digital self-service car rental.
What’s more, KINTO Flex is powered by a fleet of trusted Toyota cars, and with a passenger fleet consisting of over 97% hybrid vehicles, Australians can rest assured they are travelling safely and sustainably.
Users can also extend their subscription through the digital self-service function within the KINTO app, and if they’re ready to unsubscribe from KINTO Flex, cancel free of charge from the upcoming bill cycle with just 7 days’ notice2.
Mark Ramsay, General Manager of KINTO said:
“We believe that everyone deserves the freedom to move, so we’re thrilled to be expanding KINTO’s local offering and now offer Australians a car subscription that adapts to their lifestyle.
We’ve seen the demand for short term and flexible mobility increase, and KINTO Flex is the nation’s answer to those who want all the benefits of car ownership for those who may not want to take the leap yet into purchasing their own vehicle.
There is no one size fits all to travel, that’s why we prioritise flexibility and are creating a service that aims to fit into the lifestyle of our customers, not the other way round. KINTO Flex allows users to drive some of the latest cars without any long-term commitment, and the flexibility to adapt to their lifestyle, and we hope the Australians love KINTO Flex as much as we do.”
Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the expansion of KINTO’s services will offer consumers even greater freedom and flexibility.
“The introduction of KINTO Flex offers Australians the next best thing to vehicle ownership, as it is simple and easy to drive the latest Toyota vehicles, including our popular hybrid models, for a longer-term period with a monthly subscription,” Mr Hanley said.
“KINTO Flex marks an exciting step in the future of mobility. It caters to emerging customer needs and mobility requirements that go beyond our traditional business model, giving people the freedom to move and providing a new transport-related service across Australia,” he said.
KINTO Flex subscriptions start from $1215 per month and $0.17 per kilometre travelled3 and include fuel, 24/7 roadside assistance, maintenance, and servicing, and boasts no sign-up fee, no establishment fee, and no security bond.4
