Do you ever wish you had a car for just an hour, either to pick up a piece of furniture you bought at IKEA, or to get a huge grocery haul from the discount supermarket that is too far for walking distance? Or maybe you want to take a weekend road trip to Whistler or Seattle? This is where this week’s Smart Saver will come in very handy for you! INTERNeX has just partnered up with a company called Zipcar and if you haven’t heard of them before, I am sure you are going to be very interested in what they have to offer.
Zipcar is a car sharing company that has vehicles all throughout Vancouver for any of their members to use at any time on any day. All you have to do is go online or use your IPhone or Android and look up where the closest Zipcar pod is to your current location. From there you can reserve or book a car by the hour, the whole day or even longer!
Once you are a Zipcar member, you have access to every single car in their fleet, and the rates start at $8/hr for a car rental. How cheap is that?? But that’s not even the best part, when you rent a Zipcar you are not responsible for any fuel or insurance costs and you get 200km free which each reservation. So if you want a hybrid car for an hour, all you’re going to pay is $8.00 and that’s it!
Zipcar is such a great way to have the freedom of driving without the cost of having to pay for gas, insurance or costly monthly car payments. Zipcar is regularly $90 to join and $65 annually each year after, however, they have a special offer, which is a $30/year membership (Savings of $60) and will be giving back $30 in driving credit. After this is paid, you have access to every single car in zipcar’s fleet. They have such a wide variety of vehicles to choose from, they have hybrids, MINIs, coupes and even BMW’s if you’re feeling extra classy or want to impress a hot date 😉

What a great idea! I am definitely interested in trying out Zipcar!!
This is great! Reason enough to start working on getting my drivers license! 🙂
That great then I do not have to get a cab, when I’m doing my heavy duty groceries.
No Kidding! We should do a huge costco shop… maybe even add IKEA all in 1 trip!! We’re going to have a pick a big zipcar in order to fit all our stuff.
What’s costco shop? I’ve never been there?
Costco is a store where you can get stuff very cheep. Bit like the Real Canadian Superstore
It’s so convinient to have a car around the corner, like home!
Or we could go shopping in Seattle, that would also be amazing and cheap.
It’s great to everyday use and to take trips around Vancouver on your own!
The zipcar for business option looks also very attractive.
