If your travel often requires that you rent a car, you may want to consider joining Zipcar. Zipcar offers affordable hourly and daily rates for car rentals. They provide service in several major cities throughout the U.S. and to colleges and universities.
There are two options for joining. One option requires that you pay an annual fee, and you have the freedom to rent a car as often as you like. The other option does not require an annual fee at sign up, but you must commit to a minimum of $50 worth of monthly use. Hourly rental rates start at $7.43 per and daily rates start at $69.30. Rates vary depending on the plan you sign up for.
The application to join this service is available online. When you are approved you will receive your zipcard by mail within 3-7 business days, or within a day if you pick up your zipcard at a Zipcar office. After you receive your card, you may reserve your car online or over the phone. After you make your reservation, you may pick up your vehicle at the Zipcar site of your choice. There are Zipcar rental sites located at various WMATA metro stations throughout the DC metro area. Cars are unlocked by passing your zipcard over the reader attached to the vehicle’s windshield. Simply return your car to the rental site at your return time and lock the door. Extremely simple and convenient service.
