This looks a great idea if you need a car for a short period of time - eg an hour or so - cheaper than getting a taxi. Various sized vehicles available at various locations across the UK.
£12.50 for 1 years Streetcar membership and 1 hour of driving in a VW Golf worth £66 incl. petrol, insurance and congestion charge - Save 81%
Streetcar is the UKs biggest pay-as-you-go car club, giving you access to cars parked on streets around Oxford, London and other UK cities.

As a member, you can book Streetcars online, or with your mobile by the hour, a day or a month. Then just walk up to the car, use your Streetcard or iPhone to unlock, then drive like its your own. Take it on an adventure (or to the shops) and when youre done just bring it back, lock it up and forget about it.

Streetcar gives you all the convenience of owning a car, with none of the costs and hassle. Tax, insurance, maintenance and petrol are all included and rates start from just £4.95 per hour for a shiny VW Polo. Compared to owning a car, Streetcar can save you over £1500 per year.

Streetcar membership and 1 hour of driving normally costs £65.45, but with todays MyCityDeal its just £12.50! Go get your drive on, with Groupon.

How it works:

* - Buy the deal
* - We email you the voucher after the deal ends
* - The voucher includes a link, click on this and you will be taken to the special membership page


REVIEWS:

"So far, I've used a Street Van twice, and the process couldn't have been more simple. No problems with the vehicle and no problems with billing. And when I've been out and about driving the vehicle and found I needed more time, all I had to do was send a text to Streetcar, and they extended the booking!"
YELP

"They have cars parked all over the city and my closest garage is at the end of my street, so it's almost like having my own car. Even trips to IKEA are more bearable (although IKEA itself remains resolutely unbearable) thanks to the Streetcar van hire. I haven't had a bad experience or a bill over £25 for a day's hire - and they pay for the petrol! You just go online or call Streetcar, book your nearest vehicle and go. It's a no-brainer. If you like or need to drive occasionally but can't keep a car in London, this is an invaluable service."

    Good deal - however my local car is 104 miles away! If I was living elsewhere i'd definitely look into it.

    If you take up this offer, don't forget the iPhone app that will enable you to unlock the car remotely.

    I hear in the next update you will be able to drive it from the back seat with touch screen control. I believe the chavs will appreciate this function as their front seats can only recline so far back. The fact that most Streetcar cars are VW Golfs is the icing on the cake for that demographic.

    You can join their competitors Connect for free and 1 hours driving could cost as little as £3.95

    Connect by Hertz are doing free membership and an hour driving a golf will cost you £5.95

    Good deal though if you have a Street Car near you.


    I like Connect by Hertz a lot, as it's cheaper and more flexible than most.

    However, since I moved out of central London I don't have a Connect car anywhere near me. StreetCar does, OTOH... so I've been waiting for a cheap Streetcar deal to come along.

    I've been a member of Zipcar for a while now (they were offering free membership for members of other car clubs), but although they now own StreetCar they haven't merged the fleets yet.

    Yes, but right now is "£17.50 for 1 year’s Streetcar membership and 2 hours driving in a BMW worth £73.40 incl. petrol and insurance - Save 76%"

    23p per mile for "petrol" after the first 30 miles a day for shorter hires.

    A trip to drop someone off 200 miles away and return would cost almost £89.10 in "fuel", or as most cars speedos over read by 10% its over £98.

    It would be cheaper hiring a car outwith this scheme and filling it yourself for longer runs!

    Van hire costs more than normal van hire, and with a mileage charge for over 30 miles and an large insurance excess!!!!

    Despite including insurance - there is an excess of £750 - but you can pay a monthly feel to drop this.

    COLD

    The only potential benefit if if you want to "deliver" something and can manage it in a short period of time over a shortish distance, and are happy to risk your £750.

    I believe you can't do one way trips, only returns, as each car in a fleet lives in its own designated bay and must be returned there at the end of your trip.
