Car Club, Car Hire & Share

Car clubs and hire schemes are good ways to make use of a car without owning your own and contributing to the number of cars on the road. It can also be more cost effective, convenient and without the hassle of owning and maintaining your own vehicle.

In this section you will find information about Chichester's Community Car Club scheme as well as information on car hire, van rental and car share opportunities.

You can also view forum posts from Roussillon Park residents who are looking to car share.

In the future, Roussillon Park will itself join the car club, with a further provision of two cars based on the development.

Two vehicles are located in Chichester, with one in a dedicated bay in East Street and one in West Street. Roussillon residents are able to join this car club.

Potential benefits

Use a car club vehicle rather than buying a second car. Use the car club vehicle for a short journey not on the bus route. Do a shop at the supermarket (up to 2 hours is cheaper than 2 taxis)

Add up insurance, MOT, road tax, servicing, depreciation and you have a large annual bill before you do any mileage.

Booking a car

You can book a car on-line or by phone with as little as 1 minute's notice.
