For $50, today's Groupon gets you a one-year Zipcar membership and a $50 driving credit (a $125 value). Urbanites who ordinarily hoof it, use public transit, or ride on the backs of men bred for transportation purposes can't resist the convenience of wheels-at-will without the hassles of car ownership.
Reserve an SUV with a ski-rack for a winter outing, a truck for heavy hauling, a hybrid for whale-saving, or a coupe for couping; there are tons of models you can choose to drive. View vehicle availability online, and then reserve the car; Zipcars live in hundreds of locations all over the city. Like every Zipcar, the car must be returned to the original location. The reservation includes driver's insurance and a gas card to fill up the tank. Reservations are billable by the hour or by the day, starting at $8 per hour and $77 per day, and reservations include 180 free miles per day. This Groupon covers the $25 membership sign-up fee, gets you a year membership (a $50 value) and a $50 driving credit. Click here to see complete rate info.
Signing up is easy; your Groupon will include simple instructions for redeeming on Zipcar's website. Please note: Anyone who doesn't meet Zipcar safe-driver requirements will not be eligible for membership, but will receive a complete refund in one to two weeks. You must activate your Groupon within the next month.
