There are all kinds of different ways to reduce the cost and environmental impact of your commute. You can walk, bike or utilize public transit. But every once in a while, there are just some places you have to go that independence and convenience of a car.
Car-sharing programs like Zipcar make it super easy to enjoy all the benefits of using a car without all the time and effort it takes to own one. This year, Zipcar introduced Zipcertificates so that you can share the joy of community car ownership by giving your loved ones a Zipcar membership.
Coolest Things About Zipcertificates: They start at $50, can be used to pay for membership or driving costs, and are a simple solution for those in need of a great last minute gift without the cost and hassles of expedited shipping.
Perfect Gift Idea For: People who want to save money, people who use public transit but need a car sometimes, people who hate the hassle of fueling and maintaining a car, people who travel for business, people who want to take better care of the planet.
How You Can Get One: Purchase a Zipcertificate at www.zipcar.com/gift, and receive an email to forward or print within minutes -- no shipping or wrapping required.
If you'd like to get a Zipcertificate under the tree this year, there's also a handy tool for giving your loved ones the hint!
