Streetcar joins forces with Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor
The scheme offers members access to a range of low-carbon BMW and VW cars and vans on a pay-as-you-go basis, for anything from 30 minutes to months at a time. Members book a car online or over the phone, as little as 30 minutes ahead of time, and use smartcards to unlock the vehicle. And they can locate, book and even open a car with their phone thanks to Streetcar's iPhone app.
Under the partnership, Streetcar is offering Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor guests a free two-week trial membership – the scheme is able to sign up new members over the phone and offer instant access to its vehicles.
Stuart Nelson, general manager at Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor said: 'Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor is pleased to partnering with Streetcar's innovative team to offer a pay-as-you-go car scheme to our guests. We recognise that during their stay guests may require flexible car hire and we feel that Streetcar is able to offer our guests the most convenient and cost-effective service available.'
As well as Glasgow, the scheme currently boasts over 1400 locations across nine other cities; London, Brighton, Cambridge, Southampton, Guildford, Maidstone, Oxford, Bristol and Edinburgh.
