City Car Club

City Car Club operates across England, Scotland and Wales giving customers access to everything from city cars to seven-seaters and vans.


Co-Wheels has vehicles located across England and Scotland. Vehicles vary from small cars to estate cars and seven-seaters, plus some cars owned by members and made available for others in the Co-Wheels club.


E-Car claims to be the UK's first entirely electric pay-per-use car club. Cars available include the Renault Zoe and Nissan Leaf hatchbacks, and the Renault Kangoo Maxi van. There are currently five bases in the south east of England and a further six coming soon.

Hertz 24/7

Hertz 24/7 moves away from Hertz's traditional rental car setup giving access to vans at B&Q stores across England, Scotland and Wales. Customers can rent large vans from outside these stores, along with smaller petrol, diesel and electric vehicles in city centres.


Zipcar has a variety of vehicles parked across a small number of cities in the south of England. Vehicles range from superminis to hybrid cars and large vans.

Outside the city

If you don't live in a city, you might be able to join a smaller, community-run car club. 

Some rural car clubs have just two or three cars in villages where public transport is patchy.
