Enterprise Car Club has expanded its 24/7 car club service in Southampton with two new vehicles located at its new Southampton City Dock branch, opposite the railway station.
Due to the branch’s location at one of the city’s transport hubs, the two new vehicles – a Ford Transit van and a Toyota Yaris hybrid – will enable inbound business and leisure travellers using the ferry from the Isle of Wight or coming from other parts of the country by rail, to travel on to their final destination.
Southampton City Council has already signed up more than 50 staff as Enterprise Car Club members, as well as renting vehicles on a daily basis for longer business trips.
Southampton City Council’s workplace travel plan officer Leon Girling said: “Using car club and daily rental is very convenient for our employees and it’s easy to administer as there are no expense claims to process.
“We can see exactly who has travelled where and how much each trip has cost us. The vehicles are easily booked, and if we need to make a longer trip, we can switch to a daily rental vehicle.
"The fact that we can access vans and hybrids makes this a really flexible and environmentally-friendly solution, which is an important factor for the council.”
Enterprise’s wider car club network along the South Coast includes vehicles at the Enterprise branch in Portsmouth as well as on the Isle of Wight.
This forms part of a much larger national network of 1,100 on-street vehicles available for rent 24/7, 365 days of the year, in over 130 cities and communities across the UK.
