Learning to share is a habit that comes in handy when you need a car, husband, or set of underwear in a pinch. Share the road with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-year Zipcar membership and a $50 driving credit (a $135 total 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 for family outings, 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 are burrowed in dozens of locations across the Toronto terrain. The reservation includes driver's insurance and a gas card to fill up the tank, and rentals are billable by the hour or by the day, starting at $8 per hour and $73 per day, and include 200 free kilometres per day. This Groupon covers the $30 membership sign-up fee in addition to your year-long membership (a $55 value), plus 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. 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—please note that your membership will automatically renew at the end of your year if you do not cancel it.
This Groupon is for new Zipcar clients only. Must be 21 or older.
Five Toronto-based Yelpers give Zipcar an average of 4.5 stars:
- The cars are always well maintained and not having to worry about gas and insurance is great. There is always a good selection of smaller and larger cars depending on my purpose as well. – Kurt G.
- With Zipcar, I can book a car to go to a party, return it around 5am, walk home, go to sleep and not have to worry about waking up early to return it to an office. – Nicole B.
