An Introduction To Car Clubs

Car clubs are great! They provide people with convenient access to a car, without all of the costs and hassle of owning one. No need to buy a car up front, pay fixed rentals, sort out insurance or maintenance.

Car clubs are very much like rental cars, but much more accessible. Rather than having to pick a car up from a depot they are located in busy locations, on-street, in car parks and residential areas. They are also easy to book – online, by phone, or straight from an app.

You can reserve a car in advance or at a moments notice, with booking available from as little as £2.50 an hour. And when picking the car up there is no need to even see anyone, simply unlock the vehicle direct from your membership card or smart phone, and off you go. It really is as simple as that.

Car clubs are used by both individuals and businesses. Individuals are able to benefit from flexible access to a car, without owning one, whilst businesses can provide a workforce with easy access to a rented vehicle (often replacing more traditional pool cars).

Car Clubs In Newcastle

Across Newcastle, there are two main car club providers Enterprise Car Club and Co-Wheels, both are supported by Local Authorities to make cars available within key locations. The closest vehicle to Newcastle Great Park is conveniently located on Ivy Road, Gosforth and is operated by Co-Wheels but there are many more cars available across the region.

To get started, simply visit the Enterprise Car Club or Co-Wheels website, where you can sign up for the scheme. Once you’ve done so, you will receive everything you need in the post.

You can then log in online or via the app and begin reserving vehicles in advance or at the last minute (provided there is a vehicle available!) any time of day, any day!
