A variety of people use car clubs, hear what they have to say about their experiences. Here is a short video showing the benefits and reasons why some members of car clubs choose to use them.
Benefits for members
Car clubs provide their members with convenient access to cleaner vehicles without the hassles and expense of ownership (such as tax, MOT, fuel, servicing, repairs, depreciation and parking). Members who drive less than 6-8,000 miles per year then a car club could save up to £3,500 a year.
Benefits for policy makers
Car clubs offer a unique combination of advantages to the end user within a broad range of benefits that enable policy makers to meet multiple targets at local, regional and national levels, including emissions reduction, improvements to air quality and encouraging individuals to increase their use of public transport.
Benefits for businesses
Car clubs offer unique benefits for businesses and employers who shift their business travel from funding employees’ own car use to pooled and shared cars. By replacing “grey fleet” vehicles employers can make cost savings and help to reduce carbon emissions and the associated risks of funding employees’ own cars.
Benefits for communities
Car clubs also enable communities to share assets, and by working with developers and local authorities car clubs can help communities tackle local parking pressures, support sustainable transport initiatives and improve accessibility.
