ORIX CarShare and ORIX Rent a Car to Collaborate with NTT DOCOMO’s New “d car share” Service

TOKYO, Japan - October 18, 2017 - ORIX Auto Corporation ("ORIX Auto") announced today that on November 8, 2017, it will begin a collaboration between NTT DOCOMO and ORIX Auto's car sharing and rental car services to offer NTT DOCOMO's new "d car share®" service also announced today.

An exclusive d car share plan will be available from ORIX CarShare. The service will cost 220 yen for each 15 minutes, with no basic monthly fee, and will include discounted six-hour and late-night packages. To allow even first-time car sharing customers to use the service worry-free, supplemental coverage is provided on top of normal coverage through the roadside assistance coverage for d car share, which offers flat tire, lock-out and on-site fueling services free of charge, as well as free replacement vehicles in the event of an accident or breakdown.

Going forward, ORIX Rent a Car will also be working to enhance its services.

Both ORIX CarShare and ORIX Rent a Car will make it possible to search locations and handle everything from reservations to payment (aside from rental car charges) via the d car share app. Users can also accumulate d points equal to one point for every 100 yen (excluding tax) they pay each time they use the service, which will also be available to customers who do not have an account with NTT DOCOMO.

To date, ORIX Auto has worked to expand and promote the use of ORIX CarShare and ORIX Rent a Car services through collaboration with railway companies, parking lot operators and other providers of transportation infrastructure services. This latest collaboration is intended to integrate ORIX Auto's services with NTT DOCOMO's new platform for consolidating a variety of car-related services, enabling customers to enjoy even greater convenience when using car sharing and rental cars from ORIX Auto.

In response to a wide range of customer needs, ORIX Auto will continue to expand its offering of new services through collaboration with other industries.
