INTERNeX Canada: Zipcar – Summer Party Silver Sponsor

INTERNeX is glad to introduce our partner and Summer Party silver sponsor Zipcar today! They are helping INTERNeX with the biggest event of the summer 2012! See the INTERNeX Summer Party event page for more information.

Did you ever wish to do a short one-day trip outside of the city where no bus is going? Need to do big shopping? Want a North American road trip? That’s what Zipcar will help you with! Zipcar is a car sharing company that gives you temporary access to a car if you are 21+ – choose time and type of car you need and enjoy the freedom!

All you need is to be a Zipcar member, your driver’s license and a driving record. It only takes a minute to join, just apply online! For INTERNeX candidates it’s $30 annual fee for your membership and cars start from $8 per hour! This price includes $30 in driving credit, all the gas you might need, insurance, 24/7 roadside assistance and 200 free kilometers/day! All you need is the Promo Code: INTERNeX2012! Once you’re approved, you’ll get a personal Zipcard, which is your ticket to any Zipcar in Canada, the US, and Europe! Zipcar launched in Barcelona and the UK this year and will be launching in Vienna soon! Yes, worldwide and you can even cross the US/Canada border on your Zipcar road trip!

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!

Celebration of Light Festival

Wednesday’s Vancouver’s streets and corners were filled with people wanting to see the annual Celebration of Light Festival happening at English Bay.

Since 1990, Vancouver has been home to the Celebration of Light (originally known as the Symphony of Fire). This international pyro-musical fireworks competition has attracted the world’s leading fireworks designers and is seen as a highly prestigious event. The fireworks festival creates an exciting arena where spectators can enjoy each country’s representatives unveil their latest techniques and use the most innovative fireworks materials as they compete to be crowned the winner.

Didn’t get the chance to see Wednesday’s show? No worries, you have three more opportunities! Meet other INTERNeX candidates this Saturday for another viewing of the Fireworks. We will meet up at the Starbucks behind the laughing statue in English Bay at 7 pm! Bring a good book, a game and a blanket because it will be a wait and can get a bit cold after the sun goes down!
