Wednesday is almost over, but we still have enough time to save some money!! This week we are going to talk about saving money on transport, especially by car.
First of all, instead of taking public transport or a car it is always way cheaper to walk or go by bike. This is of course not in all cases possible if you don’t live close to work or outside of downtown.
If you do want to go by car but you will not use it that often it is expensive to buy a car. A better and cheaper option is to look into companies like Car2Go, ZipCar or Evo. Those companies have a lot of cars around and in Vancouver and you can use them if you have a membership with one of those companies. The idea is just to share the cars and use them whenever you want. Another advantage is that you don’t have to park it at the same spot again, just another Car2Go, ZipCar or Evo parking spot in the city is fine!
When you are going to travel far by car it is a good idea to do a lot of research in the car renting companies. The cheapest way is to have a person that is 25 years old in your group, because then you don’t have to pay the extra fee for younger drivers. If you don’t have someone that is 25 years old it is still affordable to rent a car. There are lots of companies and with good research you can find the cheapest company. In my experience it is cheapest to rent a car at Budget, but sometimes the other companies have great deals too. So always keep that in mind!
I hope you can now save money on your trips, when they are close and/or far. See you guys tonight at PuB NiGHT!
