Zipcar was founded not to long ago in 2000 by Antje Danielson and Robin Chase. They built and molded Zipcar after European car-sharing companies. They first launched in Boston and over the next 10 years expanded to New York, San Francisco, and other major cities around the country.
Today, Zipcar host more than 30 different makes and models, ranging from your everyday compact cars to your premium luxury cars. One of the best parts about Zipcar though is just how easy it is to use. To get started simply sign up online, and once you’re approved you’ll receive a Zipcard in the mail. Through the Zipcar website or mobile app you can see a complete listing of available vehicles. All you have to do is reserve a nearby vehicle of your choice, pick it up, and, when done, drop it off at the same location. Let’s say you find yourself needing it longer than you expected, you can extend the reservation on the spot so long as another member hasn’t already reserved it.
Rates vary by city, but you’ll always receive a complimentary gas card and insurance with each rental. But one sure way you can save on your reservation is to take a look at Zipcar’s Groupon coupons page. There you can find special sales and discount promo codes towards reservations or memberships.
