Hello, I am thinking about joining a car sharing service and have seen both Streetcar and Zipcar in the area. Does anyone have any experience with either of these and have any suggestions as to which to choose?
I'm a Street car member and I have no complaints; clean cars, reasonable charges. I understand that there is a monthly charge now for new members though, so not sure how that stacks up against Zipcar. I would still recommend a traditional car hire company for longer journeys, for the unlimited mileage.
I am a member of Streetcar and they're really good. We have done 2hr hires and have recently booked a car for 5 days - for a fixed fee including mileage: £150.
They do have an annual membership fee and if you want to diminish the insurance excess then you'll need to pay a bit more but i'm sure other car clubs do the same.
Their phone support is really good and on the one occasion I've had to query my bill they were really clear and helpful about what the charges were.
In my experience of both current Zipcar user and ex-Streetcar user, I would definitely recommend ZIPCAR, they are great - awesome cars: BMW, Audi, Mini... and lots of car available in SE1 all the time...
On top they give £25 free driving credits when joining in - You must have a coupon though... Here it is!: rieifzma :) feel free to use... ;)
