You will need your driving licence and national insurance number.
Alternatively, please email and we will send you a membership form and joining information or arrange a time to talk you through it on the phone.
Membership costs are £60 per person per year, paid by £5 monthly direct debit. You will be billed for your membership fee once your application has been accepted and insurance cover confirmed.
We will then send you a copy of our WestWheels Member Handbook. This will have all the information you need to book and use a WestWheels car, including the code for the key safe and location of the cars.
Our cars are insured through Moorcar – please check you are eligible to drive them under their insurance terms and conditions.
The insurance cover has a £250 excess, which means you pay the first £250 of any damage. Windscreen excess is also £250. Some members purchase individual insurance to cover this insurance excess. Here is one company we know of, but you may want to shop around.
Personal effects are not covered by WestWheels insurance.
