That’s what the INTERNeX girls did when we decided to go to Seattle for the Fourth of July! We tested Zipcar earlier on a trip around Vancouver and to IKEA for some shopping. Both times the booking was so easy and we had an awesome time. Having a car for a day gave us flexibility to visit a Fourth of July parade near Seattle, do a small city tour to the gum wall and the first Starbucks and at the end see the incredible fireworks of the 4th of July in the US! We had so much fun that we were late to return the car. But Zipcar makes it easy: we just called and extended the reservation without any charges.
To reserve your Zipcar or change your reservation is as simple as that: use their reservation system anytime and anywhere; online, by phone or via apps for iPhone and Android. Find a Zipcar parking spot in your area, there are a lot of Zipcars parked throughout the city – a Zipcar lives near you! Your Zipcard is programmed according to your reservation, use it to open the car and you are good to go!
Cruise around in a MINI, take care of big stuff in a pickup, impress your friends in a BMW or be eco-friendly in a Prius hybrid. You’ll find all kinds of cars for whatever occasion you need!
If you guys are interested in doing a road trip, go to an outlet store for some nice deals, or just want to do some groceries, Zipcar is the perfect solution for you! Rent a car for a couple of hours, for a day or even longer and have the freedom to go ANYTIME ANYWHERE! See the Zipcar website for more information!
