New pay-as-you-go car hire system unveiled in Orpington

A new pay-as-you-go car hire scheme has just been launched in Orpington, Bromley this month. It is hoped the new venture will help those struggling with the rising cost of motoring as cars can be hired from as little as £5.

To further entice customers in the Bromley area into making use of the new service, membership to the car hire club is completely free. The car hire system will offer a highly flexible and affordable way for drivers to make get about by car in the Bromley region.

The car hire scheme is a joint venture set up between the local Bromley council and the leading car rental provider, Connect Hertz. Cars can he reserved for hire in advance, or with just a few minutes notice depending on the availability of hire vehicles in the vicinity. A designed collection and drop off bay has been created in the centre of Orpington for the convenience of the car hire customers.

Those wishing to hire a car through the new pay-as-you-go scheme in Orpington can do so by first signing up to become a member, which is free. After membership is approved, customers can hire cars from anything from one hour, to a whole day, or a week.

The cost of the hire includes insurance cover, maintenance of the car, breakdown assistance, should you require it, and also congestion charges and cleaning. With the rising cost of owning and keeping a vehicle becoming too much for many to manage in the current economic climate, the use of pay-as-you-go car hire schemes such as this one in Orpington, is likely to be on the increase.
