Fee Structure

The Times Car RENTAL fee system is based on 6-hour rentals, 12-hour rentals, and 24-hour rentals.

If the rental exceeds the specified period, additional hourly or daily fees will be charged accordingly. The cheaper of these two fees will be charged after calculation.

If the user decides to return the vehicle before the scheduled return date, only the sum equivalent to the unused period will be refunded.
A midterm cancellation fee will be charged (calculated in accordance with the equation below).

Midterm cancellation fee = (Fee charged upon vehicle pickup - Used sum upon early return) x 50%

JPY 5,292 JPY 6,480 JPY 7,560 JPY 6,480 JPY 864
7-Hour Rental

The base fee for six hours plus the additional fee for one hour will be charged.

Base fee for 6 hours plus Additional fee for 1 hour plus plus (7-hour rental) = JPY 6,156
8-Hour Rental

The base fee for 12 hours will be applied because it is cheaper.

Base fee for 12 hours plus plus (8-hour rental) = JPY 6,480

The total fee to which the additional fee has been added is compared to the next base fee, and the cheaper of the two fees will be charged.
