City Wheels Car Hire Scheme 
Untitled-1.jpg

City Wheels Car scheme allows Coastal Tenants to get around without the need to purchase a car!  Owning a car means you’re responsible for the cost of buying the car, the car insurance, the maintenance, MOT and road tax.
 
With City Wheels all these are taken care of!

How does it work?
Tenants who join the scheme pay a monthly fee for their membership, and then pay for their user charge and mileage costs.

 
We currently have 5 vehicles available to use, made up of 4 Ford Fiestas, and a small van.  The vehicles are kept at our Swansea Office and are available for a maximum of three days (except bank holidays or special promotions). They are also available throughout the week and weekends!
 
Who can join?
As long as you’re a coastal tenant, aged between 25 - 70 years old, have a good tenancy record and have a held a full UK driving licence for more than a year, you can join the scheme!
 
 
How much does it cost?
You can choose to pay your membership either monthly or yearly – paying yearly will save you £10. The cost for using the vehicles will vary on when you take it and for how long (detailed below).  You will also need to pay 15p for every mile you travel (there is a fuel card in each car to allow you to fill the vehicles with fuel). Your usage in the vehicle is recorded by a DriveRight reader which works when you insert your DriveRight card which is issued at the time of joining.
