There is an alternative to car ownership in the upper Calder Valley.  You can use a car whenever you need one, for as little or as long as you want, and pay as you go.   All the benefits of owning a car and none of the hassles and worries.
With prices from £7.50 per hour it could save you a lot of money.   And it’s really green: Hour Car members use cars much more efficiently, and we have a wide range of fuel efficient vehicles to choose from.
All our vehicles are well maintained and comprehensively insured, with nationwide breakdown recovery.
You pay an annual membership fee to join (less than the cost of road tax for most cars).  Then all of the Hour Car fleet are available for you to book whenever you want, for as long as you want.  Booking is easy online.

What people say about us 

One of the best things about Hour Car is not having to worry about a car parked outside our house that we need only very occasionally.  On the occasions that we do need one it's there; when we
don't, it's not just sitting there rusting away and not being used
