Car2Go is a cool alternative to renting a car!
I recently attended an event and was introduced to a new car sharing service called Car2Go. Car2Go gives you the fab car without the costs and responsibility of car ownership. It’s similar to car rentals but with a twist.
It quite simply is a car at your fingertips, when and where you need it. Need a car? Simply open the app find one, use the app to unlock it, drive wherever you need to go and park it when you’re finished. It’s really that easy!
No reservations needed, no re-fueling and no worries. There are a few fabulous perks when using the Car2Go service. They include no monthly fees, free parking, no re-fueling costs or maintenance. You don’t typically pay maintenance or monthly fees with traditional car rentals but you are responsible for parking costs while using ,fuel and insurance (optional or use your personal).
Take a look at the Car2Go service…
I really like the free parking perk. For example if you’re driving a Car2Go vehicle in downtown DC you don’t have to feed the meter. It’s already included in your fee.

You leave it in a designated ‘home area’ near your location for someone else to use. Remember with traditional rental cars you have to return it to the agency or the airport where you picked it up.
The cars are pretty cool too! The current fleet consists of smart cars, Mercedes Benz-GLA and Mercedes Benz-CLA. The service is currently available in NYC, Portland, Columbus, Seattle, Denver, DC, and Austin. It’s also available internationally in cities like Montreal, Hamburg, Madrid and Amsterdam to name a few.
It’s all about options and this is a cool option for your quick daily errands or short weekend road trips. Sound like something you would like to try out for yourself? Click here to sign up today! Join today for $5 and receive a $10 drive time credit.
