Wakefield, Peterborough, Doncaster and Durham are the first four stations to go ahead with the new car club service, which Enterprise is planning to extend too many other stations along the line.
The Department for Transport has welcomed this initiative as it supports partnerships with transport companies which in turn help support customers in more “joined-up” and hassle free travel.
The new car club vehicles are all positioned in the station car parks and can be booked online and accessed using a smartphone or membership card. Vehicles are available for use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Anyone with a credit card and license valid for the UK can apply for membership via the Enterprise Car Club website or iOS and Android apps. Once the application has been approved, which typically takes just a couple of hours, the member may access vehicles instantly via their mobile device.
Vehicles cost from £4.95 per hour to rent, including petrol and insurance, and from £39.95 per day for members needing a vehicle for more than eight hours.
Dan Gursel, Enterprise Car Club managing director, said: “Integrating with key transport hubs is the next evolution of car clubs. They are quickly becoming the go-to option for people who want fast, easy access to a vehicle, wherever they are and at any time. This makes car clubs an excellent option for the increasing number of people who want to ‘train/drive’ as a logical solution for sustainable business and leisure travel.”
