Zipcar members save $1000/month

Zipcar provides affordable access to a car 

With the cost of private car ownership rising 9% since 20211 owning a car is more expensive than ever. This is especially true when that car sits unused for 95% of its life.2 With Zipcar, members pay for what they drive, and nothing more: no parking, no maintenance, no insurance. Zipcar members save $1,052 per month on average compared to car owners.
