Inspired by a car sharing scheme in Berlin, Bostonian Robin Hill launched her car-share service in 1999. Today ZipCar has networks in New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Chapel Hill. The service provides rental cars on an hourly basis without need for a central garage or in-person reservation. Simply find the Zip Car parking and spaceswipe your Zipcard to unlock the door and drive away. They even do the car in electric!

Zipcar’s perfect for those little trips to see the girlfriend’s parents: ‘oh is that the time, we have to get back now because we’re being charged by the hour!’
