Join Book Drive

Co-wheels is a pay-as-you-go car hire scheme, with vehicles available to hire in convenient locations across the UK.

As a car club member, you can book any of our cars on our online booking system or over the phone, and use your smartcard to access them - no need for keys. At the end of your booking, you return the car back into its bay.

Insurance is included, and you can book a car for 30 mins to days at a time, only paying for the hire time and distance you drive.

It's as easy at that!

How it works

Driving is easy when you're a car club member. We cover everything, including insurance, cleaning, servicing and refueling - you just book a car when you need one, and drive away!


Joining Co-wheels is common sense. We provide a cheaper, greener and more convenient alternative to owning and using your own car.


Owning a car has the added cost of insurance, loan charges, tax, servicing, breakdown insurance and the biggest cost - depreciation! With Co-wheels, you just pay for what you use. People who don’t need a car everyday save money by giving up their own car and using Co-wheels instead.


We want to provide people with better travel options. Co-wheels members choose walking, cycling and public transport much more, only using the car club when it really is the best option. They drive less, they pollute less. When they need a car, Co-wheels cars are electric, hybrid & low emission.


Owning a car is a hassle - finding a reliable car, organising bank loans, getting a parking space and then costs which seem to increase every year for insurance, tax, garage bills & MOT charges. With Co-wheels, you can book and be on your way in a well-maintained, lower-emission car. You use the car for only as long as you need it, and return it to its dedicated parking bay. We have a range of vehicles for different journeys, including vans in some locations.
