Overall Opinion: ZipCar is one of the most convenient solutions to the problem of transportation. For many people, owning their own vehicle is not only unrealistic from a cost standpoint, but the hassle of dealing with owning a car isn't worth the effort. Many people are looking for a way to avoid having to own their car while still being able to get around freely, and ZipCar is the solution. You can choose the duration of your rental, and you don't have to rent by the full day. You can rent a car for only a few hours if that's all you need, and there are numerous vehicle styles to choose from. The app connects you with vans, hybrids, sedans, and many other vehicle varieties. Available cars near you can be sorted by make and model, and you can use the app to see what reservations you have coming up. If you haven't yet found your ZipCar, the app will give you step by step directions that will lead you there. Once you are in the the vicinity of the vehicle, the app will send a signal to the car to honk its horn so you can find it. The ZipCar team is only a few taps away through the app if you have any issues, and you can use the app to alter, cancel, or extend any reservations on the fly. Some locations where ZipCar is active are already trying a new method for unlocking the car that requires a Bluetooth signal from your phone. The phone will connect to the vehicle via Bluetooth and issue the command to unlock. This system is being tested now, but it will be implemented soon. In essence, ZipCar is a car-sharing service in which users can allow other users to rent their vehicles for a certain price. There are so many different vehicles in this system that it provides you with the flexibility to use the vehicle you want in almost any area. ZipCar is active in more than 500 cities across the world, and those cities are scattered throughout the United States, the UK, Spain, France, Taiwan, Canada, and Turkey. If you aren't already a member of the ZipCar system, you can join through the app or by visiting their website. Once you join, you'll be able to rent your first car in no time. There are over one million people who use this app every day to help them get from point A to point B. There's no harm in downloading the app just to check it out since it is entirely free until you actually rent a vehicle. You'll find the app to be an excellent solution to your transportation troubles.

Pros: Fully Comprehensive App Easy Car Locating
