Members may not realize it, but Better World Club also provides corporate fleet roadside assistance. Our largest fleet, with thousands of cars, is ZipCar, the car sharing service. Headquartered in Cambridge, MA, ZipCar is rapidly expanding, reflecting the increasing popularity of car sharing.
Car sharing is a cool twist on car rental, giving you on-demand access to cars by the hour or the day whenever you like. When you join Zipcar it's like you have your own personal fleet of cars available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in Boston, New York, and Washington DC. Choose from over 20 models of cars. Drive a MINI Cooper or a BMW, a Honda Element or a hybrid Toyota Prius--whatever your mood. You can own a car in the city or you can save time, money and, as ZipCar likes to say, your sanity, with a Zipcard in your pocket.
You can check ZipCar out at www.zipcar.com, where you will find car locations, pricing and membership details as well as a secure on-line application. Rates include gas, insurance, maintenance and designated parking.
BWC members receive a 10% discount when joining ZipCar.
