Enterprise expands car club operations
Enterprise is expanding its 24/7 car club service in Southampton with two new vehicles.
The Ford Transit van and Toyota Yaris hybrid car are located at its new City Dock branch, which also offers a range of daily rental services, and join the existing four car club vehicles in the city.
The vehicles are targeted at both leisure and business users, including Southampton City Council, which has more than 50 staff signed up as Enterprise Car Club members, as well as renting vehicles on a daily basis for longer business trips.
“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,” said Leon Girling, Southampton City Council’s workplace travel plan officer.
“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.”
