Take a look at what’s down the road once you’re a Zipster.

I own a small business, The Peacock Room. I save over $500/month by not owning a car anymore, a move made easy with Zipcar. I don't have to pay outrageous monthly insurance fees, or have my time consumed by expensive repairs and maintenance. Zipcar is a transportation and a concierge service in one.
