Zipcar Introduces Two Summer Offers in Toronto

Zipcar launched two of its services in Toronto for the upcoming summer months. The "Zipvan" cargo van service will be available for members, as well as a monthly membership plan, according to a company announcement on June 6.

The "Zipvan" cargo van service will include 15 Ford E-150 full-size cargo vans available for hourly or daily use with rates starting at $14.75 per hour and $104 per day. Prices include gas, insurance, parking and roadside assistance for all vehicles in the Zipcar fleet. The vans are equipped with a back-up camera and more than 6.5 cubic meters of cargo space.

In addition to the vans, Zipcar is bringing a new membership option to Toronto customers. Those opting to join the six-month minimum monthly membership will pay a $30 application fee and $6 per month after that.

Members can add an additional member to their account for $3 per month, and can switch to an annual plan at any time.

"We hope the new 'pay per month' option will benefit those seeking a lower initial cost to join, as well as those looking for access to a set of wheels only on a seasonal basis without an annual committment," said Zipcar Toronto General Manager Christian Demers.
