How to Guides
Please use the app or if this is your first rental, hover a contactless card over the pin pad in the windscreen and wait until the light turns green. Now the car is unlocked and you can open it.
Don’t worry; this happens to us all, which is why we make it as easy as possible to extend your reservation.
You can extend your reservation from within the vehicles themselves by 15-minute increments. To do so simply press menu on the PIN pad in the glovebox and follow the instructions on screen.
If in doubt, please call the clubhouse team (for free from the PIN pad) to prevent any other members being inconvenienced. If members are late and do not let us know they’ll be charged a £30 late fee plus 20p per minute for the duration over their original reservation. Additionally, any costs accrued by any member who is kept waiting may be passed on.
All other charges can be viewed here.

Once you have turned the engine off, simply open the glove box and place the key fob which is attached to the keys, in to the in-car pin pad and follow the on-screen prompts. Once completed and you have collected all of your belongings, simply lock the car via the app.
The mobile app will not allow you to lock the vehicle over the booking time – in this instance, please use a contactless card. Once you had heard the car lock please check the doors to make sure they are locked before leaving.
