Pay-as-you-go car hire firm City Car Club has bought its rival WhizzGo for a six figure sum.
The deal establishes City Car Club as the UK's largest with a network in 15 cities operating 500 cars for 16,000 members.
City's chief executive, James Finlayson, said it was a strategic acquisition which will allow "our current and future members to have access to our cars in most major UK cities. Buying WhizzGo was a key move and one we have been looking to make for some time."
The combined business will turn over around £5m.
