What is a Car Club?
A Car Club is a network of self-service cars and vans located across Bath and many other cities around the UK. Vehicles are located in reserved parking bays and available to hire by the hour.
Car clubs are a great way to have access to a car when you need one, but without the hassle and cost of owning one. They can reduce congestion, reduce parking pressure, reduce pollution and encourage other sustainable transport modes.
How Does it Work?
Residents and businesses can book a car or van 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Join - Once approved, you’ll receive everything you need to get you on the road, sent via 1st class post.
Reserve - Login and select any one of the 950 vehicles and pick your reservation start/end times. You can reserve online, via the iOS app or by phone in advance or at the last minute.
Unlock and Go – Hold your membership card over the windscreen reader or use the app to unlock the vehicle. Enter your PIN number into the PIN pad and collect the keys. You will then pay per mile during each reservation.
Return - Return the vehicle to the same location at the end of your reservation, you’ll always have a parking space waiting. Hold your membership card over the reader one last time. The doors will lock and your reservation will end.
Every Car Club vehicle can replace many privately owned cars. The fleet is chosen to adhere to a zero or low emissions policy and includes full electric and hybrid vehicles.
How much does it cost?
You only pay for the journeys you make and with no car tax, insurance, repairs or servicing to pay, it makes it a much more cost effective and eco-friendly alternative to owning your own car.
