How does Subscribe with Mike Albert work?

A Subscribe concierge will deliver the fresh vehicle and ensure you’re all set to go. Our goal is to ensure a smooth process so you can get back on the road.
What is included in a Subscribe with Mike Albert subscription?
Every Subscribe with Mike Albert subscription includes rights to a selection of a vehicle, insurance coverage, and all routine maintenance. Want to switch out your vehicle? Simply swap your vehicle for a fee. The Subscribe concierge team delivers thoroughly cleaned, fully gassed vehicles to your location on your time, and takes care of all maintenance and repairs between swaps to ensure your travels are safe.
Enjoy an allowance of 1,500 miles per month during your subscription. Unused miles can be banked for use up to 3 months. Any additional miles beyond your original limit plus your banked miles amount will cost a small fee ($0.25/mile). For example, if you start the month with your original 1500 miles and a bank of 500 miles from the previous month, then you drive 2500 miles by the end of the month, you will have to pay for the 500 miles driven beyond your starting 2000 (original + banked).

How does insurance work?
Vehicles provided in the program are insured on a fleet insurance policy held by Mike Albert. All approved drivers are covered by the policy, which includes:
How long can I keep a vehicle?
Up to a full year! However, when a vehicle has been with a member for many weeks, we might need to ask for it back so that we can do routine tasks like preventive maintenance. In that case, we’ll swap you into a fresh vehicle that is similar to the one you have. In practice, most members swap regularly and enjoy doing so!
How new are the vehicles?
We strive to ensure our inventory consists only of models released in the last two years. Vehicles are detailed before and after use so they feel like new!

View a digital version of your insurance card under "Your current ride" on the home screen of your Subscribe app. Hard copies of the insurance card can also be found in the glovebox.
What about fuel?
All Subscribe with Mike Albert cars are delivered with a full tank of gas. If you swap a vehicle without a full tank, your concierge will refill the vehicle and add the charge to your account following your swap.
When is payment due?
A valid credit card is required during sign up. Your first payment will be charged when we confirm delivery of your vehicle. Subsequent payments will be charged on a monthly basis, in advance of the upcoming month of service. Any additional charges for gas or upgrades will be charged as soon as the swap is complete.

Yes, members can move between plans at any time. Your monthly subscription fee will be prorated. We require that members moving to a lower-cost plan have been on their current plan for at least one month.

Yes! To pause your Subscribe with Mike Albert account, simply pay a one-time $100 fee to maintain your account for the length of your pause period. The pause period is at your discretion and not limited to any minimum or maximum number of days.

Your account will remain in good standing for the duration of the pause period unless program eligibility requirements are no longer met.

Push the button on the Tesla charging connector to open your charge port. You can also open the charge port from the car’s touchscreen or by pressing on the port cover when your car is unlocked. White color indicator means your car is ready for charging. After plugging in, a blue color indicator means your car is preparing to charge. When the indicator turns green, charging is in-progress.
