New service offers car hire for £4.50 per hour
Motorists in Belfast will now be able to hire cars or other vehicles for a rate of around £4.50 an hour after a new service was introduced.
Enterprise Car Club on Boucher Road said its new service enabled users to access a vehicle day and night all-year round by booking via the mobile app and picking up the vehicle using their smartphone.
According to Enterprise, the Boucher Road branch is the first location in Belfast to offer hourly and daily self-service. There are five vehicles on-site- two Ford Transit vans, a hybrid Toyota C-HR, Toyota Auris and a Ford Fiesta. The concept of hiring a car for short periods is typical of the so-called 'sharing economy' where consumers opt to hire otherwise costly items according to need, instead of making a longer-term investment in an asset.
Hire rates start at £4.50 an hour or £25 a day.
