Yesterday the INTERNeX PR team took to the streets of Vancouver with the help of our awesome friends at Zipcar! The weather was amazing and it was a perfect day to tour around the city and see what the Zipcar service has to offer. We saw so many places and did so many things in a much shorter amount of time than we ever could have if we were taking public transit. We tested out what it would be like making an IKEA trip, driving to the cheaper supermarket that is not normally accessible through public transit and of course had a great time driving around, blasting some tunes and making our own mini road trip!
If you guys are interested in doing your own trip or just want a car to grab some groceries or pick up some furniture, I highly recommend you consider doing it in a Zipcar. The process was so much easier than going through the lengthy process of renting a car. We didn’t have to book it far in advance or worry about fuel costs and paying for insurance. With Zipcar, all of that stuff was taken care of and all we had to do was arrive at the car with our Zipcar card in hand.
The system was so easy; all we had to do was place our Zipcar card on the top left corner of the windshield, which then unlocked our car. The car keys were tethered to the dashboard so you never have to worry about using them. Our car was a brand new Mazda 3 hatchback named Manseuto and it was perfect! We couldn’t believe how fuel-efficient it was for all of the driving we got done in our trip. Speaking of gassing up, the process for re-fuelling couldn’t have been any easier. All we had to do was find the closest gas station, go inside and show them our universal gas card that was ready for us in car. Once the gas was paid for, we filled up to a quarter tank and we were good to go!
Here are a few photos of all the things we were able to do and see on our INTERNeX Ziptrip. If you want to follow our trip, you can check out our Twitter page where we tweeted, checked in and posted pictures all along the way. You can also view the rest of the pictures on our Flickr Page.
If you want more information about Zipcar and the process of taking a car out for the day or a even a weekend road trip you can check out our INTERNeX blog post about Zipcar, and of course, check out the Zipcar Website for all of the details.
We had so much fun on our Ziptrip and we know that you guys would have just as much cruising around in a Zipcar 🙂
