Currently reading: Audi On Demand launched as short-term rental offering
The latest on-demand service is Audi’s, and it has launched in Manchester. It will be extended to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Birmingham and London by year’s end

Audi has launched Audi On Demand, a mobility service that allows short-term loaning of its cars, in the UK.

The service has begun in Manchester, before being extended to Edinburgh and Glasgow later this month. London, Newcastle and Birmingham will all join the scheme by the end of the year. 

The scheme starts at £70 per day and tops out at £190 per day. This price includes delivery and collection, unlimited mileage, roadside assistance and fully comprehensive insurance. Each rental can last as little as one hour or as much as 28 days. 

Most of Audi’s range is available on the service, with the Audi A1, Audi A3, Audi A4, Audi A5, Q3 and Audi Q5 ranges, including the Audi S3 and Audi S5. The Audi A6, Audi A7Audi A8Audi Q2, Audi Q7 and all RS models are currently unavailable. 

To begin with, the rates apply to customers within 30 minutes of Oldham Audi, although the brand is looking to eventually expand the scheme across the country. 

The scheme is already offered in the US, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and Germany.

Audi is just the latest brand to launch an on-demand service; Volkswagen Group stablemate Bentley trialled a similar scheme last year, before Porsche launched its subscription service in the US.

The Audi Q3 is a desirable and capable contender that fails to engage its driver, which ultimately, leaves it trailing the BMW X1 and the Range Rover Evoque

Why I'd use it

If Audi won't let you test drive a car for 24hrs then I'd hire and do as many miles as I could to see if it suits before buying.
