Today, Enterprise Car Club has more than 1,600 vehicles available to its nearly 55,000 members in 30 cities across the UK. Of those, 700 belong to more than 30 dedicated car clubs that are used by 15,000 business members from public and private sector organisations.
Their customers have ditched their grey fleet, pool and lease cars to save money, time and emissions.

One client recently celebrated the first successful 18 months of its dedicated business scheme by announcing that it had achieved a 37% reduction in CO2 emissions, while another reported that it had saved £90,000 in the first year of operation.
