    Where:
    • Revenue Share shall equal 75% for “with fuel” bookings and 60% for “fuel less” bookings, with adjustments as provided elsewhere in the terms & conditions
    • Revenue is the sum of the revenues charged by Zoomcar to its customers for all completed trips in a particular calendar month made on the Vehicle.
    • For the above computation of Revenue, the revenue from customers shall include only the following amounts charged to the Zoomcar customers using the Vehicle:
      • Per hour tariff charged by Zoomcar (excluding any additional charges or penalties applied) for the actual number of hours customers have used the Vehicle (less any discounts given to the customers), and
      • Excess kilometre fee.
  • Note that the Rental calculated as above shall be inclusive of all applicable taxes.
  • Zoomcar shall have the sole right to calculate the Rental and Associate shall not dispute the same.
  • Any payments made to Associate shall be net of deductions for applicable taxes as per prevailing regulations.
  • Zoomcar to cap discount % at 15% for all bookings.
Running Cost

Associate Facilities
Parking at Zoomcar Site
At certain times, Associate may opt to park the Vehicle at Zoomcar’s site with prior approval of Zoomcar (at Zoomcar’s sole discretion) under the following conditions:
  • Listing Period of at least 5 days
  • Charges of ₹400/day (with number of days of listing being rounded up for such calculation of charges)

Pickup and drop off of the Vehicle from Associate’s Designated Parking Location is included in the above charges.
Car Cleaning
  • If a customer returns the Vehicle in a condition that requires professional cleaning, you can mark the car unclean in the checklist, Zoomcar shall levy a cleaning charge to the customer and the same would be passed on actual in the associate payout
Termination Policy
Termination Policy
  • If the termination request is given before 10th then the last day of the same month will be your last subscription day
  • If the termination request is given after 10th then the last day of the subsequent month will be your last subscription day
  • Do note that, there is a lock-in of 6 months for every subscription. This means that if a user terminates the agreement before 6 months, there will be a foreclosure penalty which would be equal to the one-month applicable subscription fee and rental difference, if any.
  • For example - A user has subscribed to a Swift for 6 months with subscription fee 22,999 + GST per month.
    Car model 6 months 12 months 24 months 36 months
    Swift 22,999 20,999 19,999 18,999
    Car model Swift
    6 months 22,999
    12 months 20,999
    24 months 19,999
    36 months 18,999
    If the user has opted for 6-month tenure and decides to leave the platform before 6 months, he would have to pay 22,999 + GST as the foreclosure penalty. If, however, the user had subscribed for 12 months and, hence, had paid 20,999 + GST as the subscription fee for the period he was on the platform, he would have to pay the one-month subscription fee along with the price differential which will be ((22,999 - 20,999) + GST) x number of months on platform]
  • That said, we are sure this question would become irrelevant for you as you would never want to terminate before the scheduled date.
Other Charges
Cancelling or Rescheduling a Listing
  • The Associate can cancel or reschedule a Listing before and after the “Listing Start Time”, such that the “Listing Start Time” is delayed or “Listing End Time” is preponed.
  • In all such cases the Associate shall be charged an amount between ₹0 to a maximum of ₹2,000 based on the customer booking(s) affected by such cancellation or rescheduling. Associate shall be intimated of such amount prior to cancellation or rescheduling of the Listing.
  • The listing shall be cancelled or rescheduled only post confirmation by the Associate on the ZAP APP.
No Show
If the Vehicle is found to not be available at the Designated Parking Location at the Start Time of any Listing (as per GPS report) or “Car Ready Checklist” is not filled, Associate shall be charged a fee of ₹300/hour up to a maximum fee of ₹3,000.
