Zipcar - A Car Sharing Service for Occasional Driving
I first of heard of Zipcar last year while watching a morning TV show travel segment. It peaked my interest so I decided to do some research.
This is a service that focusing on the growing population of carfree people. It's different then renting because you pay an annual membership fee to join. When you want to reserve a car you either pay a hourly or daily rate. Your gas and insurance are included.
There are two plans, Occasional Driver and Extra Value Plan. Check the website for details.
There's self service access 24/7 to the vehicles. Most of their locations are located in large cities and college towns. There currently is no location in Las Vegas or Nevada.
