# Comparison Calculator Test

## How the calculator works

### Calculating the Car Next Door Cost

We work out the cost of borowing a Car Next Door car as follows:

(Estimated distance X Selected fuel consumption X Average cost of fuel)

*This is the estimated cost of fuel for your trip*

+

(Days required X Daily rate)

+

$5 booking fee (unless heavyweight membership option is selected)

+

DCL reduction fee (if chosen)

### Traditional car hire costs

The formula for a regular hire car company is a little different because they don't charge a fee per KM; instead you pay for the fuel that you use during your trip.

(Days required X Daily rate)

Booking fees and DCL reduction (if entered)
