Member Spotlight: Jinchen’s adventure Tue, 10 Nov 2015 13:43:38 +0000 Read More »]]> Recently we had the opportunity to catch up with one of our members regarding their epic trip to the furthest reaches of Scotland, in a Toyota Auris. (Did you happen to catch the awesome pictures they shared with us on Twitter?)

Jinchen travelled to Skye and Duncansby Head Lighthouse, nicknamed “Hells mouth” due to the treacherous nature of the sea. (Living proof that a City Car Club car can get you to “Hell and back!”)

Check out the fabulous views…

Here’s what Jinchen had to say about his experience of using City Car Club!

“The first time I reserved a vehicle was so easy do it online on the website, and it takes me only 2 mins every time that I need to use a vehicle. I live in Glasgow city centre, there are at least 6 vehicles around me and 1 van. The website just so easy to use, it shows me where the vehicles are located and even the features of the car. 

Once I have reserved the car I want to use, I get an email telling me where the car is and how to use the car. When I in the car there is users book in the car tells me more specific about some feature or functions of the car.

I have contacted the Clubhouse team twice, the first time was when I couldn’t get out of one particular car park because the seasonal pass wasn’t working, but Clubhouse helped me without any problem. The second time is because I need to extend my reservation, the whole process was straight forward. 

I choose City Car Club over my own car. I in fact sold my car because of City Car Club! Why? Simply because I don’t need my own car anymore. I don’t need to pay for insurance, worry about the MOT, road tax, etc. Also all the car City Car Club have low CO2 output- some cars don’t even have CO2 emissions!  Because I live in the city centre, parking can be quite expensive but with CityCarClub I don’t need to worry about that cost too. All the vehicles that CityCarClub have are fairly new cars. And as I am 23, it was just too expensive to continue to use my own car. 

City Car Club is amazing!”  

We’re blushing! If you want to follow us on Twitter or Facebook we would love to hear about the amazing places you’ve been to.

Want to try the magic of using a car club yourself? Well look no further… or do you know someone who could benefit from City Car Club membership? Don’t forget to refer a friend and you’ll both bag yourself up to 4 hours driving*.

*As you would expect our standard terms apply. £20 driving credit will be applied to both accounts and you’ll have 60 days to use it.

The Fiat Doblo is a handy, smaller van ideal for small trips to make collect smaller pieces of furniture, moving office materials or making small trips to our favourite, Swedish flat-pack friends, or just when a larger van would be too cumbersome.

The FiaFiat-dolbo-site2t will be available to reserve online from next week. Being a smaller van too, this will be available from £7.20 an hour.

Fascinating Fact: The Fiat Doblo doubles up as a submarine if you can find it’s top secret, very well hidden button… The hint’s in the name, “Doblo” meaning dual nature.*

Member spotlight: Des Reid’s new adventure Wed, 21 Oct 2015 10:11:10 +0000 Read More »]]> Our electric vehicle aficionado Des has been out and about again, chartering new territory for electric vehicles, (EV’s)! You may remember him from City Car Club blog posts such as his previous adventure to the highlands…

This time travelling up to the West Highlands, reaching Inveraray and passing one of Scotland’s greatest mountain passes; the Rest and Be Thankful.


He says the charging network is growing all the time, making it easier to reach these new heights in an EV – making for eco-friendly adventuring too!

Check out the views…

The Nissan LEAF has a radius of 70 miles, depending on the type of driving that you do. It’s ideal for short trips in and around the city but as Des shows, you can really put her through her paces and venture further afield.



Want to retrace his journey and see these epic sights for yourself? Use ZapMap! And remember to share with us where you end up too. We love seeing your adventures.

The life of a City Car Club car Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:08:20 +0000 Read More »]]> Hear about the story of our little Hybrid Yaris’ adventures!iStock_000006547957XSmall

YA12 OZM has been on the fleet for 3 years now and is about to be retired to greener pastures of tarmac and all the fuel that the little guy can drink. He wanted to tell you his story…

“I started my CCC life at Samuel Ogden Street in Manchester on 25th July 2012.  I stayed there until January 2013 when I moved to Nunnery Lane car park in York.
In my three years I have been booked 1,432 times, driven 22,045 miles for 5,709 hours.  267 people have driven me. I’ve helped York Council members get to their meetings on time, and I’ve been all over the country on adventures. I’ve helped to reduce congestion in the UK, as for every car club car that’s provided, 9 privately owned vehicles are taken off the road!
Today I retired from the CCC fleet.  Bye bye :( and thanks for having me.” 

We’ll miss you!

Every three years we ensure that we replace older cars with newer models, in order to keep our cars up to date and for health and safety reasons. Keep watching this space for an announcement on a new car soon to be introduced (or maybe reintroduced?) to our fleet family… IMG_5519 2
