- Not only is it much cheaper than owning your own car, it is much cheaper than traditional car rental.
- You don’t have to deal with crooked repair shops. If a car has a mechanical problem, just take a different car. It is not up to you to fix it.
- You can use a small car for small jobs and a big car for big jobs. You don’t need the expense of a truck for all your transportation just because you need one sometimes. You can even have a BMW (Bavarian Motor Works) if you want one to impress for a special occasion.
- Each zipcar takes 15 personally-owned vehicles off the road.
- Zipcar users typically drive less than 8.80 megameters (5,468.07 miles) per year. Rental discourages mindless driving just for something to do, which saves gas and greenhouse gas emissions.
