Car Club car parked on Bristol Street

Description

Giving up your car may seem like an obvious way to lower your footprint – but what about those journeys where driving is the only option?

Car clubs are the perfect solution for anyone who only needs to drive occasionally.

You can book a car club vehicle for an hour, a day or multiple days at a time. Cars are parked in designated bays across the city and can be booked online or over the phone. You only pay for the time you need – there are no extra costs for insurance or maintenance fees.

There are currently over 4000 car club vehicles and 245,000 members in the UK1. Car sharing through apps such as Drivy and Turo is relatively new in the UK but already popular in European countries.

Even better – some car clubs like Co-wheels give members the chance to drive electric vehicles.
