Please note that because it is essential that you can physically demonstrate safe use of the Tramper, it is only possible to become a Countryside Mobility member at a hire location. You cannot become a member online or by phoning Countryside Mobility.
Having a Membership system makes it much quicker when you come to hire a Tramper again as we have already covered a lot of the safety and administration.
3. Start Exploring!
At each of our hire locations we have carried out professional access audits to establish where it is safe (and fun) for someone hiring a Tramper to go. The member of staff or volunteer will provide you with a map and guidance.
Please note that admission and parking fees (where relevant) still apply and that some hire locations charge a Tramper hire fee (never be more than £2.50 per hour) to help cover some of the cost of the Tramper hire service.
Already a Countryside Mobility member?
1. Book Ahead - As most of our partner hire locations only have one Tramper we recommend you always book ahead by contacting the location directly. See section 1 above for links to the relevant information.
2. Don't forget to take proof of your membership with you on the day -This will either be the paper given to you when you first became a member or, if you have become an Annual Member, we will provide you with a membership card (we aim to get this to you within a month of when you become a member (depending on how quickly we receive the Membership form from the partner hire location).
3. Receive a Refresher - You should always be offered a refresher of how the Tramper works. Although this is optional we would always recommend that you take this up so that you feel safe and confident before heading out.
