INTERNeX Canada: ZipTrip Review

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 🙂

Cheers,

Your PR Team

Smart Saver Vancouver

IKEA is well known for low-priced furniture and household goods, but if you’re looking for a cheap meal, Sweden is the place to go!

Breakfast:  IKEA has $1 dollar breakfast served daily until 11am

Lunch: Make your way to the IKEA Bistro and get a hot dog for only $0.75! Or if you’re feeling extra hungry, go for the combo and get 2 hot dogs and a drink for only $2.

Dinner: Head out for a full meal for $2.99 (Mon-Fri) $4.99 (Sat-Sun). This screaming deal includes 10 meatballs, potatoes, cream sauce and lingonberry jam!

Dessert: IKEA offers $1 frozen yogurt cones, or their famous butterscotch chocolate cake for $2.99.  But if you really feel like getting a good deal, opt for the cake anytime between 2pm-5pm and get a cup of coffee and the cake for only $1.99.

Click here, to see all of the other inexpensive and tasty meals available.

And don’t worry, you don’t have to travel all the way to Sweden to take advantage of these cheap meals.  There are two locations near Vancouver, one in Richmond and the other in Coquitlam.

The Richmond IKEA is located right near the skytrain.  Just head on the Canada Line towards Richmond, get off at Bridgeport Station and hop on the 407 or 430 bus to Sweden Way.

Happy Eating!
