Independently-owned national car club, Co-wheels, has joined forces with sustainable travel company Go Travel Solutions to expand its car club offering.
From now, companies registered with Go Travel Solutions will be able to join Co-wheels for £25, which will be matched with £25 worth of credit. Registered firms will also be able to sign up staff members to the scheme for £5 each - a saving of £7 compared with non-members.
Businesses only pay for the journey time they use - anything from 30 minutes up to several days - while the companies said that staff members wanting to access vehicles outside of work will be able to upgrade their account for free to a personal membership.
Smartgo - Go Travel Solutions' business travel consultation arm - has been developed to assist UK workplaces with commuting and business travel with the network providing employers with a range of business benefits including reduced business costs, carbon management planning and reduced car parking demand.
"The Smartgo network provides a wide range of convenient sustainable transport options, and Co-wheels fits into this mix perfectly. Providing all the information in one place, along with some excellent incentives, makes it easier for businesses to make smarter decisions for their staff travel, and we are very happy to be part of the network," said Liz Gray, regional manager at Co-wheels.
"We're delighted to team up with Co-wheels to extend their growing car club options through our Smartgo networks. There's a real synergy here as we're both looking to help members to save money, extend the transport options available to them, and create a cleaner environment by embracing lower impact travel choices," said Phil Saunders, business development manager at Go Travel Solutions.
