The E-Car Club offers a convenient alternative to running a car for those who don't need one everyday.

Welwyn Hatfield residents now have access to electric cars available for hire, thanks to a new initiative by Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council.

The council has worked with E-Car Club to provide two electric cars available for public hire, with the aim of giving an alternative, more sustainable way of travelling that will help to reduce emissions and save money.

The cars can be booked for any length of time, and as they're completely electric, there are no additional fuel costs to worry about. Insurance is even included in this price, and the minimum membership age is just 19.

The e-cars are stationed at the Campus East Council Offices in the Cherry Tree Car Park and will be available for public hire outside of office hours (before 8.45am and after 5.15pm Monday to Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday). The cost to the public is £5.50 per hour, or £45 for the whole day.

The vehicles are bookable online or via the E-Car Club mobile app, on a 24/7, self-service basis - with no need for any car key handovers, you can unlock the vehicle directly from your smart phone. The electric cars can be used by different people throughout the day, and can be booked from as little as one hour in advance. You can also book several slots at a time.
