Car sharing with Zipcar
20 June 2014 - Impact Hub

Car-sharing is a great way of getting wheels without the cost of owning a car (to your bank balance or the environment!)

That’s why this year, we’re teaming up with Zipcar again to offer HUB members a free one year business account (normally £99) plus a free driver.
Unlike car pools there are no risks or fixed costs. Rates start at £4.79 an hour for cars and £8.13 an hour for vans and include 60 miles of fuel, insurance and the congestion charge. There are Zipcars located all across London so you can pick up a car from near to your office or where you live.
To sign up visit zipcar.co.uk/impacthub or call 020 3004 7816. You can be in a car or van near you on the same day!
*all rates exclude VAT

Beyond Zipcar: Collaborative Consumption (Harvard Business Review)

It’s been more than a decade since the founding of Netflix and Zipcar, and by now both are well-established businesses. They’re leading examples of an economy and culture model we call collaborative consumption—systems of organized sharing, bartering, lending, trading, renting, gifting, and swapping. Collaborative consumption gives people the benefits of ownership with reduced personal burden and cost and also lower environmental impact—and it’s proving to be a compelling alternative to traditional forms of buying and ownership.
