LEAP Car Club

LEAP Car Club gives you all the convenience of a car without the hassle and expense of owning one.  A community, not for profit club, we have cars parked centrally in Lochwinnoch, Linwood and Bridge of Weir that can be hired for as little – or as long as you want, with access to the cars 24 hours a day.  Cars can be booked online at a moments notice or booked up to 6 months in advance.

What our members say

  • ‘I’ve now got access to a reliable car just when I need it.’  
  • ‘I joined today and have already been out for my first drive — incredibly quick and easy processing of my application,’  
  • ‘The car is so handy.  It only takes a minute to book, then you’re away.’ 
  • ‘The Car Club is fantastic. Joining the Car Club meant I didn’t need to replace my car – I now just use the Car Club when I need to travel.’ 
  • ‘Before I joined the Car Club I had serious problems getting out of the village to visit friends and family, go to the supermarket, swimming pool etc because of my working hours and poor public transport… In short, the Club has given me a new lease of life and I think it gives great value for money.


We now offer two different kind of membership options: a one-off annual payment of £60 or monthly membership subscription.

The monthly membership subscription works by paying £15 upfront and then £5 per month, by standing order, thereafter. This can be cancelled at anytime.

Fuel is paid using the LEAP Car Club fuel card at no cost to you.  You hand the card to the petrol station and we pay the bills. For the electric car, you just swipe the card provided, and we sort out the rest.

We also take a deposit per household in case of accident. This can be either £100 in cash or security by credit card. In the event of an accident the driver is liable for £250 excess.  No accident, no charge.
