Enterprise has opened a new car club location in Amesbury in Wiltshire giving business access to car and van rental by the hour.
Four of the new vehicles – including a Vauxhall Astra and a Volkswagen Crafter Van – are situated at the Holiday Inn in Amesbury.
The fifth vehicle – a hybrid Toyota Yaris – will be located at the Amesbury Baptist Centre in the centre of town.
Vehicles are available 24-7, costing from £4.95 an hour, and are being routinely cleaned between rentals in line with new protocols introduced during the coronavirus pandemic.
The rental company has implemented a Complete Clean Pledge programme across its global operations, including its Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands, as well as its portfolio of transportation services.
The Pledge includes the company’s car rental operations, as well as its commercial vehicle rental, retail car sales, car club and vehicle-subscription services.
It includes washing, vacuuming, general wipe down, and sanitising with a disinfectant that meets leading health authority requirements, with particular attention to more than 20 high-touch points.
The new car club vehicles in Amesbury are part of a broader move by Enterprise Car Club to place vehicles in locations where car rental has traditionally not been an option, creating transport hubs near railway stations, housing developments and local amenities such as hospitals.
Dan Gursel, managing director of Enterprise Car Club, said: “Partnering with the Holiday Inn to launch Enterprise Car Club in Amesbury means we can be much closer to communities where people need vehicles. This is an example of how Enterprise is using car clubs to provide more travel options for residents and businesses by locating vehicles available for immediate round the clock rental on their doorstep.
“We are expanding Enterprise Car Club across the UK to reach communities large and small, so that people can quickly and easily pick up a low emission and value for money car when that is the best choice for their trip.”
Enterprise Car Club has a growing network of more than 1,400 on-street low emission, hybrid and electric vehicles in 180 cities, towns and communities across the UK.
Many Enterprise Car Club vehicles are located at transport hubs including cars parked within 500 metres of 180 railway stations across the UK.
