Revealed: How Co-wheels are the cheapest (and greenest) car hire

We’ve done the research so you don’t have to (and some of it involved burrowing deep into some tiny small print). As you can see from this chart, Co-wheels are overall the cheapest car hire in Birmingham. Not only are we the best for hourly rates and mileage charges, we have the lowest insurance excess and NO SMALL PRINT!

Do you own a car that you don’t use every day? You could be better off selling it and switching to pay-as-you-go! Join Co-wheels Birmingham here

  3. Vote as much as you can on Tuesday. You can vote up to 10 times from the same number. Calls cost just 11p from a landline.
  4. Watch the video clip on central 6pm on ITV1 (look out for Green Revolutions bods on our bikes with 2 year old Arthur) and be inspired!
