Co Wheels car club is a pay-as-you-go car hire scheme, with vehicles available to hire across Orkney and the rest of the UK.

The Orkney car club is operated by Co Wheels and Community Energy Scotland.  Two fully electric cars can be booked for as little as 30 minutes up to several days from Stromness and Kirkwall. Co Wheels members can access cars in 60+ locations across the UK, including Aberdeen.

Sign up and book online on the Co-wheels website or by the mobile app 24/7, insurance included, for £7.25 per hour or £52 per day, with an additional £0.14 per mile.

Orkney residents can use the FREEJOIN25 code to join with no monthly charge and £25 of start-up credit.

Visitors to Orkney can also use the car club by signing up with the code VISITORKNEY which provides you with a free membership and £25 of starting credit. A monthly membership fee of £5 will then be charged to your account. You'll need to plan in advance and join Co-wheels at least two weeks before setting off for Orkney so that you receive your key card prior to travel.

More information can be found on the Orkney page of the Co Wheels website.
