Thinking of travelling over Christmas? Why not give one of St Andrews Car Club’s electric cars a try for your trip?

There’s special offer on to make the idea of using a car club vehicle even more attractive.

Seven-day bookings will cost just £150 over the festive period – that includes fuel and insurance.

Bookings have to be made by December 13 – and the deal is bound to be popular.

The St Andrews Car Club launched in April this year, as the first all electric car club in Scotland.

It’s a partnership involving St Andrews University, the St Andrews Partnership, Renault cars and E-car Club.

Eight cars and two vans are available in St Andrews, and uptake has been positive, according to E-Car Club’s Patrick Cresswell.

He reports good use of the cars in St Andrews, with more townspeople joining up all the time.

The car club costs £50 to join, with hire costing as little as £4.50 an hour.
