The Car Club scheme at Warwick

As part of our transport and mobility strategy to provide you with a wider range of sustainable travel options, we are trialling an exciting new Car Club scheme operated by Enterprise Car Club.

What is the Car Club scheme?

The Car Club scheme is available to University Staff and PGR's with access to two fully electric and two hybrid vehicles, which can be booked free of charge for business travel only. The cars are supplied and maintained by Enterprise Car Club and are permanently parked on campus which can be booked from as little as one hour, up to a maximum of two days during weekdays only, full details of the business trip must be provided within the "memo" field when booking the vehicle. This is required to validate the booking.

If you require a vehicle for business travel for more than two days, you should book a hire car using the University Car Hire contract for business travel Short Term Car and Van Rental (

To register for the Car Club scheme please email: with your name, department and confirmation that you wish to join the Car Club scheme for business travel. We will then supply you with a web link to register to join the scheme.

In addition to the vehicles available for business travel, we have two ultra low emission petrol cars on campus, which can be hired by staff and students for personal and social travel at preferential hire rates. To access these two cars plus many more nationwide, staff and students must register and pay to hire these cars through a separate web portal. Please email: with your name, department and confirmation that you wish to join the Car Club scheme for personal travel. We will then supply you with a web link to register to join the scheme. There is normally a membership fee of £60 to use this service, but the University has negotiated a 100% fee discount for our community. If you wish to obtain one year discount on your membership, enter Promo Code WARWICK10. Personal membership of Enterprise Car Club provides staff and students with access to hire any of their 1,400 Car Club cars across the UK for private use.
