EST highlights financial benefits of car clubs for fleets with new best practice guide

The organisation points out that the car club market is growing rapidly in the UK, with a number of different types, ranging from commercial public-access operators and volunteer-run community solutions to closed user group car clubs where vehicles are dedicated to one organisation or site.

The guide aims to help firms decide if joining or setting up a car club may be beneficial for their organisation, and which type of car club best meets their needs.

It also looks at the financial savings involved, with research showing that a car club can deliver a lower cost per mile than the equivalent grey fleet or pool car journey as well as significant time and cost savings arising from a reduction in business mileage. Additionally, shifting from grey fleet to a car club can contribute towards meeting duty of care requirements and reduce an organisation’s environmental impact.

The guide includes the following:

  • An explanation of car clubs and the different options available.
  • A range of case studies, including insights from Birmingham City Council and the British Airport Authority.
  • A summary of car club pros and cons.
