  • The details
    • Pay only for the time you hire. Book a car from as little as 30 minutes up to several days, only paying for the time you hire.
    • Sign up for free. There's a free membership for Orkney residents over 21 who have held a valid UK drivers license for at least two years. Sign up online with code REFLEX1. It takes about one week after sign-up to receive your membership.
    • Easy booking. Book online or through the Co Wheels mobile app, then pick up your car with your smartcard from locations around Orkney. They include locations in Kirkwall and Stromness, both funded by ReFLEX Orkney.
    • Insurance included. Once your Co Wheels membership is set up and licence details added, set off without any paperwork.
    • No keys needed. Hiring a car is a fully-automated process. Receive a smartcard that unlocks and turns the car on once you have booked it.
    • Share a membership. If you live at the same address as an existing Co Wheels member, they can invite you to join their account as an additional driver at no extra cost if you use the REFLEX1 code.
    • Do you live in the outer or inner isles? Check out our Isles residents factsheet for info on accessing ReFLEX Orkney's services where you live.

Charging the car

Charging the car

  • Plug in for free at the designated Co Wheels ReFLEX charging bays.
  • To charge in a different location, the Charge Your Car card provided in each car gives you access to the charging point and is paid for by Co Wheels. (Fines incurred from overstaying at a charging point will be paid to Co Wheels plus an admin fee.)

  • Directions on how to use ReFLEX car chargers can be found in each car. Public charging posts have easy-to-follow instructions.
