Charging structure

Membership fee

Full membership of the Club is open to people of 25 years and over who are interested in furthering the work of the Club and who have paid the annual subscription as laid down from time to time by the Directors of the Company. All members of the Club shall be entitled to vote at General Meetings.
There is an annual fee of £30 for full membership and £10 for each subsequent family member.

  • Full membership
    • This is for people who want to use the cars and who pay the Insurance Excess required at time of joining and who abide by the Membership Rules given on becoming a full member.  
  • Family Membership
    • This is a sub-category to Full membership, which allows two or more Full members to only pay one Excess Insurance Premium. This means that only one person in the family can drive a Club vehicle at any one time. 
  • Affiliated membership
    • This is available at the discretion of the Directors for people joining the Club who have no desire or rights to drive the Clubs’ cars but who are committed to the furtherance of the objectives of the Club.

Deposit

A deposit of £150 is also required and may be used to cover the cost of the insurance excess if an accident occurs and a claim against our insurance is made.  It also may be used to pay for repairs caused by you or any family members, even if no claim is made against the insurance policy.  Membership fee(s) and deposit are due on joining the Club.  

Should an accident occur and your deposit is required, you must pay another £150 into the Club’s bank account before being able to continue to use the car club cars.  If at this point you decide not to continue then your account will be tallied and any outstanding amounts settled as soon as possible. Membership fees are non-refundable.

Charges

Club members will be charged a flat mileage rate which is determined by the Directors from time to time. 

• £1 per hour or part thereof (capped at £18 per day)
PLUS
• 23p per mile

Example, if you drive 100 miles and have the car for 1.5 days you will be charged £53; £23 (100 miles) + £18 (1 day) + £12 (half a day) = £53.
