ABOUT ZIPCAR CANADA
So, you've crunched some numbers and was faced with the daunting realization that owning a vehicle is putting a serious damper on your finances. Factor in car payments, gas, insurance, parking, maintenance costs and other payments and that hunk of steel becomes the reason you aren't going on vacation or buying that big screen TV. Getting rid of the car might solve your problem, but what about your wekly grocery haul, the odd appointment on the other side of town or the occasional weekend road trip? Zipcar has your solution and trust us, it comes at a fraction of the cost of car ownership.
Around since January 2000, Zipcar is an international car sharing company headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. Based on a tried and true system already implemented all over Europe, Zipcar gives members access to vehicles for a small hourly fee (plus the cost of the membership). Users reserve their cars and pick them up at conveniently located Zipcar pickup spots, using their key card to unlock the door, and return the car after use - without having to pay for fuel, parking, insurance or maintenance fees!
WHO IS IT FOR?
Boasting close to a million global users, Zipcar's fan base is quite varied. From busy professionals who travel for business and prefer their Zipcar membership to traditional car rentals, to families that occasionally need a vehicle to get around. Because Zipcars are typically located in large urban centers, many Zipcar members are simply people who have decided against the gridlock, city parking fees and pollution that goes hand-in-hand with city car ownership and frequent car use.
