Car clubs are a great new way to get access to a car without the costs or stress of ownership. They can give you the flexibility to use a car at work, while commuting by public transport. Businesses can also save money using car clubs instead of operating pool cars.
Just imagine using a car you didn’t have to worry about servicing or maintaining, that didn’t cost you a penny for insurance or tax and transformed from a hatchback to a people carrier whenever you wanted. If you drive less than 6000 miles a year, a car club can save you up to £3,500 every year.
- Do you occasionally need a car but don’t want to own one?
- Are you running two cars but could manage with one most of the time?
- Do you have a small car and could use an estate now and then?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a car club is your answer.
You can set up a car club yourself with a group of friends, or you can join an existing club. Currently there is one car club in Wiltshire, and one in Swindon:
Co-cars in Salisbury.
Co-wheels in Swindon

Many people think that using public transport is expensive, but they often forget all the hidden costs of using their cars. If you spend 30 minutes a day driving to work, that’s around £1700 a year in fuel and maintenance, not including insurance, Vehicle Excise Duty and the declining value of your car.
