Co Cars in Southernhay


If you are a regular visitor to Exeter or are thinking about staying in the area for a couple of weeks, Co Cars might be the perfect eco-friendly travel option for you: ideal for those days when you want to head out to explore Exeter’s surrounding coast and countryside. 

Join Co Cars and you can arrive in Exeter by plane, train or coach safe in the knowledge that you’ll have a whole fleet of hire-by-the-hour or day low emission and electric cars at your disposal.

You’ll find Co Cars parked in dedicated bays at locations around the city, including Exeter St David’s and Central Train stations, so wherever you’re staying, you’ll never be far from a Co Car.

Book your chosen car using the Co Cars app, collect from its dedicated bay, unlock with your smartcard and PIN, then simply return the car to the same bay at the end of your trip.


Co Cars makes perfect sense for your wallet as you only pay for the time you drive, not all the hours you don’t. It costs just £25 a year to become a Co Cars member and hire prices start from £4/hour or £29/day + 18p per mile. If you book one of their expanding electric fleet – many of which have a 240+ mile range – it’s just £5.50/hour or £40/day and there’s no mileage to pay when using their charge points. Fuel, insurance, tax, maintenance and emergency cover are all included so there are no hidden costs.


Find Co Cars at locations in central Exeter including Exeter Central and Exeter St. David’s as well as neighbourhoods across the city and at other locations around the South West. Members of Co Cars can book any car in the network.

Co Cars also operates the Co Bikes electric bike hire network, ideal for journeys around the city itself or for exploring the Exe Estuary Cycle Trail.
