How does the Car Club work?

TrydaNi provides support and connects residents to their local community organisations, who run and manage their own electric vehicle car clubs.

Each Car Club handles their own membership and looks after the cars available by using TrydaNi’s Community Car Club Booking System App. All cars come installed with sophisticated and modern hardware that monitor usage to ensure only those who have booked and paid for the cars, have access – there’s no worrying about losing keys to the cars!

These Car Clubs help to tackle the cost of living. They allow forward-thinking drivers to have access to vehicles when needed, providing an opportunity to drive a private car without the responsibility and financial burden of owning one.

How much does it cost?

There is a £3 a month membership fee to join. Booking a car costs £1.00 per hour, £0.25p per mile, with a fixed booking fee of £2.50.

If you book a car for more than 150 miles, you will receive a 10p per mile discount.

You’re booking a car for 2 hours and plan to drive 40 miles, this would cost:

£1.00 x 2 hours = £2.00

40 miles x £0.25p = £10.00

Plus a fixed booking fee of £2.50 makes the grand total £14.50.

You’re booking a car for 48 hours and plan to drive 200 miles, this would cost:

£1.00 x 48 hours = £48.00

200 miles x £0.15p = £30.00

Plus a fixed booking fee of £2.50 makes the grand total £80.50.

All cars will be available with at least 80% charge, and members are in charge of returning cars back to community hubs with at least 80% charge. Car charging is managed independently by our members and this is not included in the price.

What if I’ve never driven an electric vehicle before?

Worry not, help is at hand.

Ask any of our local car club coordinators for help on how to charge the cars and where the local charge points are.

There isn’t a Car Club in my area and I’m interested in starting one.

If you have at least 15 people in your area who are interested, then we can help you start your own Car Club.
