Gifts for Geeks, Part 13 - Zipcar

By  Dec 11, 2007


This car "membership club" lets you reserve a car and then access it with the swipe of your membership card. Borrow a car for an hour or a day - gas and insurance included.

The downside of Zipcar is that it's currently available only in larger metropolitan areas, so if you live in Peoria, you're out of luck.  It's perfect, though, for urban folks who don't need a car most of the time, but really need one some of the time.  Plus, your options are much cooler than the typical airport rental - BMWs and MINIs are on the menu. 

Zipcar makes it easy to give a membership or car hours as a gift.
