Booking a Shariot

Using the Shariot app, select Location followed by your selected Shariot Vehicle Class to view available vehicles in your area.

Before booking, users are encouraged to Top-Up their Shariot Wallet. You will be required to add funds into your wallet to pay for future reservations.

Once your Shariot is selected, proceed to Payment. Users are encouraged to complete bookings within 5-minutes (as seen on reservation countdown) to ensure the availability of their selection. Once your booking is completed, you will receive a confirmation stating the time of reservation, vehicle model, location and the total amount paid.

Shariot allows for immediate bookings, as well as advances bookings with no restrictions. Shariot model types and vehicle classes offered are subject to availability and location.

The minimum reservation length for any booking is just 15-minutes.


Payment & Rates

Shariot uses an e-wallet system referred to as your Shariot Wallet.

You may top-up your Shariot Wallet by using traditional credit/debit cards only.

The wallet can only be topped up by the intervals of S$20.00, S$50.00, S$100.00 and greater.

Unlike other carsharing services, there are NO transaction fees for topping up. Your wallet funds are fully available for the use of our service only.

For amounts over S$100, users are able to top-up using a customised amount.

Once you have made a booking, Your Shariot Wallet will be deducted immediately with the confirmation of the reservation.

Our rates are clear, concise, and simple. We currently offer 3-vehicle classes that determine the rate of the rental. The classes of vehicles (Shariot Saver, Shariot Standard & Shariot Plus) are as seen below:

You will be shown the total before you confirm your booking. The totals mentioned above are without GST. There are NO hidden fees.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) reduces the insurance excess to both own damage and third-party damage by 50% in the event of an accident. Users are encouraged to select CDW on the Shariot app by selecting the CDW box the “Booking Summary” screen. CDW cost 10% of the total rental charges.

Shariot prides itself on having NO hidden charges. That means even the Transaction Fee cost for topping up your Shariot Wallet is waived. With Shariot, you only pay for the time you need. Shariot however does not cover incidental expenses such as fuel, parking, and ERP.

There is NO minimum amount required to be kept in your wallet or to use our service.

Shariot does not offer refunds of any kind for the credits deposited into your Shariot Wallet. Users are encouraged to use the remaining balance from the wallet before the immediate closure of their account. Credits not used before account closure will be surrendered over to Shariot.

If your account goes into a negative balance, all future bookings will be cancelled. A user’s account must be in good standings before they can book future Shariots. You will have 24-hours to top-up your account in order to avoid account suspension. After which, you are required to contact our customer service support to rectify any issues.

Shariot members are encouraged to check their balance by visiting their Wallet tab. If you feel that your account has been charged in error, please contact our customer service. If you prefer, you may also email us at support@shariot.com

Changes to Bookings

Changes to your booking are not allowed. If you wish to make changes to your reservation, you must first cancel and proceed in making a new booking. Please see our cancellation policy and fees below.

During your booking, you are allowed to extend your trip at any point in time. Simply select Extend Trip to extend your booking for as long as you need. Latest booking extension possible will allow you to view the possible extension time available.

The user is then made to process an additional payment for the extended time added to the reservation.

Note: Changes to booking charges are not allowed. Rental charges from the current booking will carry over into the extended trip.

If there are no immediate options allowed for extending, this means that a member has already booked the vehicle. If this occurs, you are required to return the vehicle at the original trip’s ending time. Failure to return the vehicle will incur late penalties.

Our Cancelation Policy is simple.

  • Cancellation less than or before 24 hours will incur 80% of the rental charge.
  • Cancellation between 24 to 48 hours will incur 40% of the rental charge.
  • Cancellation more than or after 48 hours will incur a S$0.80 cancellation charge.
  • Cancellation after the start time of booking is not allowed.

In the unlikely event of vehicle breakdowns before collecting your Shariot (and with no alternative vehicles made available) a full refund will be credited back to your Shariot wallet.

In the unlikely event of a general breakdown during your reservation, (excluding accidents/faults caused by user) the remaining time will be refunded as credits to your account.

Charges for all bookings will be deducted at the time of booking. In the event you cannot make your booking or you are running late, the full amount will be charged as stated in our cancellation policy. There will be no refunds made available.

Returning your Shariot late will incur late fees. For every 5-minute block (or part thereof) that you are tardy, you will be penalized S$8.00. For each booking, eligibility for free additional time (i.re Grace Period) is subject to the booking. There is a general grace period of either 5 or 10-minutes prior to ending your trip when available. Availability is subject to each individual booking.


Picking Up & Returning Your Shariot

To locate your Shariot after booking, visit the Bookings Tab and select Upcoming. Here you will be able to see the exact car park number, along with a deck and lot number. The details of the location can be found on the Current Booking screen.

Sliding to Start Trip will result in the immediate unlocking of the vehicle. This will begin your booking and will begin your check-in process.

Shariot doors Unlock/Lock primarily with the use of the Shariot app. If for any reason the app is unable to communicate to the vehicle, Shariots are equipped with an alternative touch keypad located on the windshield. Tap Cannot Slide located under Swipe-to-Unlock to use this function. The following screen should appear featuring a 6-digit code and instructions on how to unlock:

Before starting your trip, Shariot users are required to complete a short check-in to ensure user as the intended driver, the vehicles safety and general maintenance.

Users are expected to take an identifying photo of their face without concealing (excluding religious attire) to clearly identify them as the driver. This is to ensure the user of the Shariot account and the driver are one and the same. Failure to do upon investigation may result in the blocking or closure of users account upon investigation.

Users are expected to capture the exact four angles of the vehicle as outlined. This is to ensure the previous user has returned the vehicle in good condition. Users are also required to verify that the fuel gauge is at least at 1/4th quarter tank level.

With the start of every trip, users are encouraged to report any and all issues. Using the app, please go through the exterior and interior of the vehicle by taking photos of all the issues noticed such as dents, scratches, nonworking lights, or other damages.

Note: You do not want to be held responsible for any damage you did not cause, so remember to thoroughly check your Shariot’s condition at the start of every reservation. In your best interest, please provide us with as many details as possible

Like any vehicle being driven, users should make the necessary adjustments to the rear/side mirrors as well as seats. This includes the adding of their NETS CashCard for parking and ERP gantries.

Select No when asked, “Is the fuel gauge at the indicated level (quarter tank-1/4)?”. We will then require you to send an image of the current fuel level. For your inconvenience, we will compensate you S$20.00 that will be credited to your Shariot Wallet once a brief review by our team has been carried out.

Sharioteers are able to start trips 10-minutes before their confirmed bookings start time. “Shariot Start” is only possible if the vehicle is available for use 10-minutes prior to booking. This is provided for all of our users at no additional cost. A second Grace Period at the end of your booking is available when no subsequent bookings are there. Users will be notified within the final minute of the original booking. 5 or 10-minutes will be given free of charge for the use of returning the vehicle without penalty.


Returning Your Shariot

Returning your Shariot requires the user to reach the returning lot to which the vehicle was retrieved. Once the vehicle is parked (with the handbrake on), please make sure to collect your belongings (including NETS CashCard), removing any trash and debris. Tap End Trip to begin the check out process.

Before successfully ending your trip, users are required to verify they have returned the vehicle at one of the reserved Shariot carsharing lots.

Please return the car back to the same Shariot parking location where you picked it up from. If you are unable to park at our reserved lot due to another vehicle occupying the space, tap No when asked: “Have you returned the vehicle to the designated place?”.

In the provided space, indicate the Car Park Number, Deck Number, and Lot Number you have parked at.

Note: If determined by our Shariot team that the vehicle has not been returned to our designated spots due to negligence from the user, there will be a penalty charged to the users Shariot wallet.

To complete your trip, users are encouraged to take exterior photos of the vehicles 4 different angles as seen in the app. This is to ensure users are documented as returning the vehicle in a good condition.

Users are also encouraged to upload a photo of the current fuel gauge’s level to document that they have returned the vehicle with at least a quarter tank full.

Once photos of the vehicle’s state are submitted, proceed to the next screen. To end the trip simply swipe Slide to Lock Car. The trip is only complete once you have successfully locked the door and our message of End of Trip is displayed.

Sharioteer Tip: Returning just 10-minutes before the end of your trip is the best way to ensure there is time to remove all your belongings as well as thoroughly clean the vehicle for the next user.

Please contact our 24/7 customer support team immediately via the Live Chat function on the app. We will then send a signal to the vehicle to unlock the door for a brief period in order to recover your items. Alternatively, if there is a new user retrieving the vehicle for use, please seek out their assistance to gain access to your items.
