Co-cars – The pay as you go Car Club
We provide you with the freedom from the cost of owning a car. We look after the car and you just drive it. You get car access when you want it and only pay when you use it. We pay for the fuel, tax, the insurance, the maintenance, 24/7 emergency cover, and you just pay a simple hourly charge and mileage rate.
Our cars are available 24/7 and based at dedicated bays in Exeter, Topsham, Barnstaple, Taunton, Dorchester, Weymouth and Blandford Forum. In 2015 were starting car clubs at Exeter Science Park, Cranbrook and many new housing locations.
