Streetcar offers self-service cars and vans for rent by the hour, day, week or month. The vehicles are parked in a dense network of dedicated spaces in several UK cities and can be booked for as little as 30 minutes or as long as 6 months. Our fleet of brand new Volkswagen Golfs, Polo BlueMotions and Transporter vans can be reserved online or by phone, and can be collected and returned 24/7 using one of our high-tech smartcards and a PIN number.

The cost of your usage is based on how long you have the car, and how far you drive. Payment is simply taken 24 hours after your booking ends.

Streetcar London Reviews


Genius concept - I discovered and joined Streetcar a few months ago, after a friend recommended it. Living in WC1 it would be virtually impossible for me to own a car (think: congestion charge, no off street parking, traffic wardens, drunk and disorderly UCL freshers wielding parking cones...) but this is a genius concept. They have cars parked all over the city and my closest garage is at the end of my street, so it's almost like having my own car. Even trips to IKEA are more bearable (although IKEA itself remains resolutely unbearable) thanks to the Streetcar van hire. I haven't had a bad experience or a bill over £25 for a day's hire - and they pay for the petrol! You just go online or call Streetcar, book your nearest vehicle and go. It's a no-brainer. If you like or need to drive occasionally but can't keep a car in London, this is an invaluable service.

Streetcar - don't believe the hype - Have to say, our experience with Streetcar has been the complete opposite. Inadequate instructions on how to access cars in car parks, out of date key fobs so that you can't actually get out of the car park (that one was fun), cars so beat up that you spend half your rental period trying to match dents to sketchy descriptions, and no answer from customer services. The idea's great, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired...

Convenient, cheap and quick! - Ditto to all that is written below... it totally heart streetcar (in fact I think I might be their no 1 marketing tool). I've been signed up for a few years now and if you ever need a car srtaightaway for those trips to the garden centre, IKEA, in-laws etc then use streetcar... if you need a car for more than a day, then usually it's cheaper to get a hire car, but with streetcars usually only 3 mins walk away from your own house, its easy to see how convenient they are!

Smart Car - I completely agree with Jo's review below. Streetcar is the brilliant solution for big city dwellers who want the flexibility of having a car without the high costs. We had a car for nearly 4 years whilst living in London and 85% of the time it was simply parked outside our house mocking us. I might as well have stood in front of an open drain and thrown twenty pound notes in every day. I shudder to think how much that car ended up costing us overall, especially after a little incident involving a stationary car and a narrow one way street in Camden... But I digress. With Streetcar you can simply book a car by the hour when you need it. Car locations are all over London and new ones added every month. They offer a selection of VW Golfs, Polos and vans. Petrol is included for the first 30 miles, you can add another named driver to your account and upgrade your insurance to £0 excess (very handy for me). Ok you do need a tiny bit of pre-planning as they can get booked up at weekends but to be honest as long as we have booked our slots towards the end of the week, we always get a car for when we need it. Weekday bookings are easier and we've been able to book only a few hours in advance. Other pluses with Streetcar - the cars are equipped with maps and Ipod docking stations so you can bring your own muzak, you can easily view your account online and booking is a breeze. You also get brownie points if you find the car a bit dirty and you spend 10 minutes getting it cleaned at a carwash (paid for by Streetcar). Customer service is also brilliant - I never have to wait long to speak to someone, and having once arrived at our booked slot, we found the car had not yet been returned by the previous customer, and Streetcar immediately gave us compensation and offered to find us the closest available alternative.

Slick, smooth, superb - I've been debating buying a car for a while. Living in central London it seems a waste of cash and space to own a car. But there are times when we want to head out to the countryside for a few hours or pop down to the garden centre for a few bags of compost, which is a bit tricky to get home on the bus.

So when a couple of friends told me about Streetcar it sounded like the perfect solution. You can hire cars from 30 min slots upwards. The 24 hour rate is expensive but when you factor in the fuel which is included I think its only slightly more than regular car hire, but much more convenient. There are locations all around, we've got 3 cars two streets from us. So no more treking to the closest car hire place, and racing to get the car back before the hire company closes. With Streetcar there is total flexibility.

And the customer experience is amazing. Signing up took less than 15 min. I received my card in 2 days and was on the road within a week. I am developing a 'John Lewis' type devotion to StreetCar- its a fantastic concept superbly executed. I'm just jealous that I didn't start the company first!
