If you’re like us, you’re intrigued by the unique car-sharing service known as Zipcar. While we’re not sure how practical and financially feasible using a Zipcar rather than a personal vehicle is on a daily basis, it’s at least a creative idea and could be good for certain individuals whose lifestyle is suits.
But Zipcar is not available everywhere. It’s only in select countries, and within those countries, select cities. Do we have Zipcar here in Salisbury?
No, Zipcar is not available in the city of Salisbury, MD. By our calculations, the closest city with Zipcar available is Princess Anne. Maryland as a whole does have a healthy number of cities boasting Zipcar compared to many other states, however.
Since Salisbury does not have Zipcar, you may want to think about buying a vehicle instead.
How does Zipcar work?
Those who wish to utilize Zipcar need to be 21 years or older and have a valid drivers license. If you’re a student at a university affiliated with Zipcar, however, that age limit is lowered to 18.
Zipcar provides various membership plans that users may choose from. After one is chosen, the company will need to verify your drivers license. Once that’s been done, your “Zipcard” should arrive by mail in 3 to 7 days. Simply activate, and off you go! Well, you do need to find a car first.
What are the benefits of Zipcar?
Zipcar allows users to get a car when they want it and pay either by the hour or buy the day. In this way, users are only paying for the time that they reserve. Gas, insurance, parking and maintenance are covered by Zipcar.
How much does Zipcar cost?
A monthly membership costs $7 per month. Driving rates start at $8.50 per hour and $69 per day. Drivers are also charged $0.45 cents per mile after 180 per day.
