What is Car Sharing?

City living often means high costs and high emissions, and travelling around can be difficult with crowded roads and few parking spaces. Our solution? A Toyota Hybrid shared car ready to go when you are. As a member of YUKÕ Toyota Car Club you’ll have access to a car parked nearby whenever you need it, making city mobility simple and environmentally friendly all at great value for money. And, as we take care of tax and insurance, you can drive worry-free.

What is Hybrid?

A hybrid combines a petrol engine with an electric motor, powered by a battery which the car charges for itself. You never have to plug it in. Every time you use the brakes, ‘regenerative braking’ recharges the batteries.

Do I pay for parking and where can I park?

Your YUKÕ can be parked for free in any public parking space, in the Dublin City Council territory.
Please return the vehicle onto the same street you picked it up from at the end of your booking.
If you can’t return it onto the street you picked it up from please contact customer support ASAP.
01 691 8816 or email support@yuko.toyota.ie
You must be legally parked 24/7. Beware not to park in taxi ranks, bus lanes, private spaces, loading bays, clear ways or take up 2 spaces. The clampers will have a field day.
In the event of your YUKÕ being clamped due to any of the above, you will be charged for the removal of clamp plus a €10 YUKÕ admin fee.

Do you have one way trips?

Not at the moment. You must return the car where you picked it up from.

The car is low on fuel, what do I do?

Our maintenance teams refuel the YUKÕ vehicles on a regular basis. After heavy use, from time to time the fuel might be low. If you are low on fuel during your booking and need to refuel, there is a fuel card located at the side of the Telematics box beside the rear view mirror. You will recieve the pin for this in your booking confirmation email before your booking begins. Remember to enter the Reg and Millage each time, the reg can be found on the fuel card and you can find the millage on the vehicle's odometer.

Adding additional drivers to your account

Anyone who lives at your address can be added to your YUKÕ Toyota Car Club account as a driver. It’s simple, you pay a discounted joining fee of €10 for each additional driver and they’ll receive their own smartcard. All bookings will be charged to the same account.

How to pay

The hire cost is debited 2 hours before your booking. When you bring back a vehicle early, you will still be charged for the full length of the original booking made, unless it is subsequently booked out by another member. If you travel more than 50km you will be charged for this after your booking.

Car hire costs

Our prices start at €8 per hour or €55 a day. The in car technology will work out how long you’ve had the car and how far you’ve travelled. The hire cost is worked out on the duration of your booking in fifteen minute blocks. On every booking you get 50km free fuel and only 10c per km after this! Check out our Pricing Page for more info!

  • Smoking or transporting pets within a YUKÕ is not allowed.
  • Please do your best to leave the cars clean, free of litter, and don’t forget to pick up your belongings.
  • And remember to turn off all lights and close all windows when you’ve finished using the car.
  • You always leave automatic cars in Park (P)

Please note: There will be a €25 penalty should you break any of these conditions.
