How Car Clubs work for business

Becoming a business member of a Car Club offers a practical solution for visiting clients or making deliveries in and around the city.

In Bristol there are three operators – Enterprise Car Club (formerly City Car Club), Co-wheels and Zipcar – all offering special membership deals for local businesses.

In Bath, operators Enterprise Car Club (formerly City Car Club) and Co-wheels can discuss your individual needs.

A business membership provides you with easy access to a high quality vehicle and the ability to book online 24/7 via a website or app.  There’s the flexibility to book a car for as little as hour, or as long as required.  Models include hybrid and electric vehicles as well as conventional cars and vans.

Cars club vehicles are located on-street in dedicated bays or based on the site of larger organisations.  A smart card or similar secure system provides access to the vehicle.

Business benefits

  • You reduce your business overheads by no longer needing to purchase or lease a company vehicle.
  • Car Club membership is a fraction of the cost of running your own vehicle, with operators taking care of the associated costs including maintenance, tax and insurance.
  • There’s the added benefit of doing away with the processing of mileage claims and other car related administration.
  • Car Club membership helps meet carbon reduction targets and contribute to the green credentials of your business.

What if there isn’t a bay in the vicinity? 

Car Club operators would still like to hear from you to find out more about your needs and inform their expansion plans.  New bays are currently under installation in many parts of the city.
