Renting a Car Has Never Been Easier

Aug 03, 11 Renting a Car Has Never Been Easier

Maybe you don’t own a car, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need a set of wheels every now and then to get you to and fro. Business trips, car in the shop, moving day; there are times when a bike or a bus just won’t cut it.  So what do you do? The obvious answer is ‘rent a car’, but the key here is who you are renting from. You can go to old-fashioned car rental places and pay out the nose while waiting in line forever, or you can do it 21st century style and Zip it. Que que? Services like Zipcar are popping up everywhere, where they present a fresh alternative to car ownership and cabbing it. All you have to do is sign up (one-time application fee and annual membership fees apply) and you will have 24/7 access to a car. You can rent by the day, the week, even by the hour! And you can make your reservations over the phone or online, so you don’t have to go to some boring office to even pick up the keys because all you need is your Zipcard. There are several plans tailored to different needs, but all the prices include gas, insurance, and 180 free miles. Similar services include Mint and Connect by Hertz, so check them all out and see which one suits you best. It’s either that, or getting a ride from papi in his beat-up, old station wagon.
