the best city car club?

The main reason for joining a car club is the financial savings.  The AA calculates owning a car in the UK cost 2,749 p.a.  There are four main car clubs in the UK, all listed below.  More than likely your choice will be geographically related (www.carclubs.org.uk allows you to search all clubs at once by postcode).

Prices do vary so as well as joining costs and annual renewal fees look at what sort of use you expect you will require.  All advertise cheap hourly rates but check what rates you will expect to pay for your own circumstances.  For example, rates vary if you drive in peak or off-peak hours and your hourly rate is reduced further for using the car over longer period.  Discounts are given for using the car for 24 hour, 7 day and 30 day periods.  If you need a large car or van it will cost you more.  Adding additional drivers is extra as is taking out more comprehensive insurance to reduce the excess.

Other Tips

  • Additional saving can be made by paying a fixed monthly fee.  This may be a false economy depending on your usage so maybe try the club for a month on the clubs pay-as-you-go service and if required, you can always upgrade.
  • Some flexibility is lost with Car Clubs so before you join check designated parking locations which could be some walk, especially the further out of London you live.
  • If you live in London, some car clubs cover the daily congestion charge and others you have to pay yourself.
  • Check what else is covered such as free miles per day, additional mileage cost, late reture prices, insurance excess levels and cost of comprehensive cover.
