How much does it save?
A student who rents throughout the term of their course could, therefore, spend thousands of dollars less than a student who buys. Obviously, this margin is smaller compared to those who buy second hand, or those who attempt to sell their books at the end of the semester, however in the majority of cases rental is still cheaper in the long run due to its consistency.
Can I write or highlight in my book?
Although writing is not allowed in rentals, students can highlight text. If you do accidentally write in the book don’t panic, just leave a note when you return the title and as long as it is still reusable you will not be charged. Receiving my book once you have ordered your books, you will receive a confirmation of your order. You will then receive your books in a minimum of 24 hours if it’s in stock or 3-9 business days if we need to order it in.
What happens if lose my book?
In the event that you lose your book, you will be charged the difference from the price of the rental to the RRP of the book.
Are there any late fees?
Late fees will be incurred after the due date, which is usually a week or two after the end of the semester. In this case you will be charged $5 per week after that; however, Zookal still offer free pickup at these times. Customers may also be charged if they organise a pickup and are not there at the designated time.
