I needed to collect some furniture and my mate with his estate is out of town right now so I needed a van or estate at short notice for just a few hours. So I've just joined HertzOn Demand, it’s essentially a car club (which is free to join, unlike Zip car etc). Anyway, I figured, that: a. it’s useful to be able to have access to a van at short notice b. it could be quite an amusing way test the Fiat 500 & Alfa MiTo which also feature in their fleet. Although I believe the cars are only available in London (at present), they’ve partnered with B&Q for the vans and right now have about 120 sites across the UK with Vans. I'd spotted the vans in B&Q a while back but never looked into it before, when I saw that it's a partnership with Hertz and there's no membership fee I fugured why not? You get an RFID card when you sign up, book the vehicle youneed from their website turn up & go. Sounds easy and hassle free, will post more once I’ve used it later tonight… Vans are £14 / hr or £30 overnight (from 8pm to 8am) so sounds decent. Apparently there is a 20 mile limit after which it's something like 25p or 30p / mile. For more information or to join for free, have a look at Hertz On Demand - Car Share - Air Shuttle If anyone does want to sign up let me know as I've got a refer a friend code which is supposed to give us both a £15 credit. The membership pack also has a discount code offering up to 20% normal Hertz rates (for longer term rentals).
