Car Club's Electirc Nissan
Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre Development Trust operates a Car Club where Members of the Club can lease a Nissan Leaf Electric Vehicle from as little as 1 hour or for as long as they need. Membership is subject to Terms and Conditions which can be viewed by clicking on the box below.
We aim to keep the membership rates as low as possible, click here to see the current Membership fees and lease rates.
To apply to become a Member, you can either fill in the on-line form below or, you can download a form, fill it in and send it to us at the Trust's offices. There is some other paperwork to do, so please make sure your read the instructions on the forms. If you need any help, just get in touch.
Once you are a Member, we will need to show you around the car as well as how to charge it, should you need to. We will also show you how to gain access to it at the beginning of your hire.
As a Member, booking the car couldn't be easier! You can either phone the REWDT offices, or book via the link below where you can see, at a glance, if the car is free when you want to use it. We can show you how on-line booking works, too!

Terms and Conditions
Volunteer Driver Trial Scheme (off Rousay only)The REW DT have been asked if it is possible to provide a car driving service using the electric vehicle. The idea is to have a pool of volunteers preferably PVG registered, who could hire the car and drive mainly but not exclusively the older residents who do not have access to a car, to appointments on Mainland Orkney. This could be for example, a visit to the hospital or to take a pet to the vets etc. The car hire would be paid for by the resident, not the driver.
At the moment we only have one volunteer, Sarah Foulds. If you wish to book Sarah, please call her on 07756 939413
If you would like to volunteer, please contact the office, we would like to discuss with all those who offer their help, how this service could be managed successfully.
