How to Guides

  • How to Guides

  • Starting your first reservation

    If this is your first rental, you’ll need to hover a contactless card over the pin pad in the windscreen, to access the vehicle (rather than use the app). You can use most contactless cards (except for Monzo), unless you joined Enterprise Car Club after 29.07.20. In which case you will only be able to use the branded contactless card that we have provided you with. The card you use to do this will then be linked to your account moving forwards giving you the option to use it again in this way to access a subsequent reservation or use the app.

  • Extending a reservation

    COVID-19 UPDATE:

    Amending your reservation before your booking has started: To make changes to the timing of your reservation, or to change vehicle, please call the Clubhouse (0345 266 9290 – choosing option 1). It is not possible to do so via the app or website. It is only possible to cancel via these channels. The Clubhouse phoneline is open 8am- 8pm Monday to Friday; 8am-6.30pm Saturday and 9am-6.30pm Sunday. Though emergency calls are taken 24/7. Surcharges for booking & amending bookings are being waivered.

    Amending your reservation mid-booking: During your reservation the app will allow you to end your reservation early or extend for up to an hour. Should you need to extend your booking for longer please call the Clubhouse (0345 266 9290 – choosing option 1) to see if this is possible. The Clubhouse phoneline is open 8am- 8pm Monday to Friday; 8am-6.30pm Saturday and 9am-6.30pm Sunday. Though emergency calls are taken 24/7. Please note that if you change or shorten a reservation (including cancelling a reservation after the start time) you will be charged up to the full cost of the reservation.

    Don’t worry; this happens to us all, which is why we make it as easy as possible to extend your reservation.

     

    You can extend your reservation from within the vehicles themselves by 15-minute increments. To do so simply press menu on the PIN pad in the glovebox and follow the instructions on screen.

     

    If in doubt, please call the clubhouse team (for free from the PIN pad) to prevent any other members being inconvenienced. If members are late and do not let us know they’ll be charged a £30 late fee plus 20p per minute for the duration over their original reservation. Additionally, any costs accrued by any member who is kept waiting may be passed on.

    All other charges can be viewed here.

  • Ending a reservation

    COVID-19 UPDATE: Making and amending reservations via the Enterprise Car Club app and website has been reinstated. Temporarily though there are some small changes we’ve made to allow us to continue to clean vehicles between each rental during this time. These however do not affect how you end a reservation, you can use the app or contactless card as normal – see below. Find out more about how booking via the app and website has changed here.

     

    Once you have turned the engine off, simply open the glove box and place the key fob which is attached to the keys, in to the in-car pin pad and follow the on-screen prompts. Once completed and you have collected all of your belongings, simply lock the car by holding your contactless card over the contactless pad on the windscreen, or alternatively using our mobile app. You can use most contactless cards (except for Monzo), unless you joined Enterprise Car Club after 29.07.20. In which case you will only be able to use the branded contactless card that we have provided you with.


    The mobile app will not allow you to lock the vehicle over the booking time – in this instance, please use a contactless card. Once you had heard the car lock please check the doors to make sure they are locked before leaving.

  • Charging an electric vehicle

    Retrieve the pin pad from the glove box and remove the charge card. Tap it against the charging port reader. Open the port cover and plug in the charger. Then open the vehicle port and plug in the other end of charger. Return your charge card to the pin pad. If in doubt call the clubhouse via the pin pad on 0345 266 9290 and chat hands free. Remember to lock the vehicle and leave it to charge.

    Other useful information:

    There are three main types of EV charge point (slow, fast and rapid) as well as a number of charging connectors, some of which are suitable for a particular EV. You can use Zap-map.com to find your nearest or plan your journey, but you can also see what type of charging point is where.

    It’s important to always take the charging cable with you once you have taken the vehicle off charge; the cable belongs to the car and not the charging point. They are expensive to replace so always check it has been stowed correctly before setting off (follow the instructions in the guide which you will find inside each vehicle). 

  • Unplugging an electric vehicle

    Retrieve the pin pad from the glovebox. Enter your pin and remove the charge card. Place it against the charging port reader and remove the charging cable from both the charging ports. Ensure all port covers are securely closed and cables are safely stored inside the vehicle.

  • Fuelling the vehicle

    Park the vehicle and switch off the ignition. Retrieve the fuel card from the pin pad located in the glove box or near the driver’s side door. Refuel the vehicle and take the fuel card to the kiosk and hand the card to the cashier. If you need a pin you can find this in your booking confirmation. Always return the tank at least 1/4 full. If I’m doubt call the Clubhouse via the pin pad on 0345 266 9290 and chat hands free.

  • Covid-19 Updates

  • How is Enterprise Car Club responding to COVID-19?

    At Enterprise Car Club the safety and wellbeing of our members and employees is always our top priority. With continued news around coronavirus (COVID-19), we are taking numerous steps to ensure we mitigate the risks posed. In summary these include;

    • Enhanced Cleaning Regime: Clean vehicles have always been important to us, but at this moment in time, we know vehicle cleanliness is even more critical. As a result, we have enhanced our cleaning regime to ensure each of our vehicles is thoroughly cleaned between every rental and backed with the Complete Clean Pledge. This includes a general wipe down, and sanitising with a disinfectant that meets leading heath authority requirements, with particular attention to more than 20-plus high-touch points – find out more here.
    • Adapted automated booking process: Booking via the app and website is possible with some small technical modifications to allow us to book out vehicles for cleaning. Click here for more information.
    • Exclusion of high-risk members: Members may only rent vehicles if they (a) Are not currently under quarantine for COVID-19. (b) Have not been diagnosed as having COVID-19. (c) Are not displaying any of the symptoms of the COVID-19 virus. (d) Are not living with or in close contact with someone who is currently quarantined or who has tested positive for the virus.
    • ‘Rapid response’ protocol: Enterprise have put in place expedited processes should we need to isolate a vehicle, taking it out of use, if a member tells us that they have started to exhibit COVID-19 symptoms.
  • What should I do if during or post reservation I start to exhibit COVID-19 symptoms?

    Members should contact Clubhouse on 0345 266 9290 immediately. Enterprise Car Club will then enact a ‘rapid response’ protocol to isolate the vehicle, taking it out of use.

  • I am trying to book but am getting the message "The reservation could not be created" - what does this mean?

    When making a booking if you see a message telling you that “The reservation could not be created” it could be that there is insufficient time between your booking (including the 24hr buffer) and the next. Temporarily when booking via the app or website to secure a booking you’ll be shown vehicles that are available for your selected reservation dates/ times, plus a subsequent 24 hours. This extra 24 hours is automatically identified, giving us time to clean the vehicle for the next member. You do not need to include this timing buffer in your search criteria, and the cost of the time isn’t included in your rental fees. If you want to extend your trip for more than 1 hour you will need to call the Clubhouse. You will not be charged for any additional timing buffer outside your reservation. For more information please click here.

  • Why is it dangerous to leave hand sanitiser in vehicles?

    The NHS has warned that leaving your hand sanitiser in a vehicle can become a fire risk. Most hand sanitisers contain an element of alcohol which is highly flammable and when combined with high temperatures can cause a fire. For this reason, we strongly advise you take your hand sanitiser with you every time you leave a vehicle.
