New Car Sharing Service Option…Car2Go!

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. Click here for more information on the pricing.  #Winning #Fabulous   Another feature of the service that I like is that you don’t have to return the car to the original pick up point.  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.

  1. Shoot, I’m sold by the fact that you don’t have to feed the meter in DC. DC parking can be a hassle so the perk of free parking is awesome!!!

  9. I’ve never done a car share. I live out in the country so having our own car is a must but if I lived in the city I definitely would because sometimes I get tired of driving. It would be perfect to use to attend events.
