An affiliate of Enterprise, WeCar mobilizes its members with short-term rentals of fuel-efficient, hybrid, and plug-in vehicles. For a minimum of one hour, drivers borrow cars for errands or business meetings at an hourly or daily rate that includes gas, basic insurance coverage, and up to 200 miles per use. Upon making a reservation—which can be done 24 hours a day—members retrieve a vehicle from its designated location. Members are expected to keep the car in respectful condition, keeping pets in carriers, not smoking, and using the included gas card to refill tanks once the reach only one-quarter full. Any trips longer than 200 miles incur an additional $0.35 fee per mile, and 24-hour roadside assistance ensures drivers aren't stranded with flat tires, dead batteries, or horns that won't stop honking the Knight Rider theme song. At the end of each trip, the car must be returned on time to its original location.
