What it costs

Gillingham Car Link is entirely funded by voluntary donations. When you book your journey  the coordinator will give you a guide value for your donation. THIS IS JUST A GUIDE. It represents what it costs Car Link to take you on your journey.What you give is entirely up to you, just seal your donation in the envelope and hand it to your driver. We work on the basis of Forty Five Pence per mile. This means that every penny goes on providing your journey. We keep nothing for administration costs.


Clients on incapacity or other means tested benefits can recover the cost of travel to hospital appointments from the NHS

All journeys are return. A one way journey costs us just as much as a return journey. The driver expects to wait for up to two hours. If you know that you need more than that you should book two trips.


* Gillingham refers to a journey that is within the SP8 4 postal area.


** Gillingham rural refers to journeys from outlying villages in the SP8 post code area into Gillingham and back, or from Gillingham to an outlying village.


We are indebted  to Gillingham Town Council for a grant wwhich has enabled us to reduce the donations we ask for  the second time.


If you are a basic rate tax payer we urge you to register with Car Link. We can then claim gift aid on your donation making every pound worth £1.25. This is another way in which we can keep our recommended donations low.
