savings versus car ownership
compare us to car ownership
It's super expensive to own a car in the city. You knew that. In fact, that's why you're here. Here are some stats to help decide if Zipcar is right for you.
Car: Something similar to a SEAT Ibiza.
- Car payment:
(including registration and depreciation)
- Finance charges:
- Driving Tax and Vehicle Inspection:
- Maintenance and tires:
(estimated by Zipcar)
EUR€602/mo is a lot of money!
That's about 120 hours or 10 days of Zipcar driving.
Car: Whatever your whim - a Toyota Yaris one day, a Renault Megane the next.
- If you drive a lot:
Several trips each week and a weekend trek out to the country (10 two-hour, 2 three-hour and 2 24-hour reservations)
- If you drive a fair amount:
A couple trips each week (6 two-hour and 2 four-hour reservations)
- If you don't drive much:
About one trip a week
(4 one-hour reservations)
Loads of members have told us they either sold their car or decided not to buy one after joining Zipcar. Each shared vehicle takes 15-20 personally-owned cars off the road. Think of all the good that's doing for the environment and community.
