Zipcar Placing Vehicles at Newark Liberty, LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy Airports
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zipcar, Inc., the world's leading car sharing network, today announced the introduction of Zipcar vehicles at three airports in the Greater New York City area, including Newark Liberty, LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy (JFK) airports. The cars are conveniently located in Zipcar branded parking spaces at the Avis Car Rental pick-up facility at each airport.
"Every day tens of thousands of members rely on the convenience of Zipcar's on-demand access to 'wheels when they want them' near home and work. Today we're excited to bring the convenience of Zipcar's leading solution to Zipsters when they travel," said Zipcar President Mark Norman. "We look forward to supporting members' travel needs at additional airport locations over the course of the coming year."
Zipcar is currently offering four vehicles at Newark Liberty Airport, four vehicles at LaGuardia Airport and five Zipcar vehicles at JFK Airport. The Zipcars in these locations include Honda Civic and Nissan Sentra models, with pricing starting from $12 per hour and $89 per day. As with all Zipcar reservations, gas, insurance and 180 miles per day are included in the reservation price for these vehicles. The vehicles contain E-ZPass® readers, and members will be billed separately for the toll charges.
The vehicles can be reserved by all Zipcar members ages 21 and up, including those residing in the greater New York City area as well as those traveling to the area. Detailed instructions on how to locate the Zipcars will be included in the reservation confirmation page for reserving members. The Zipcars at JFK and Newark Liberty airports are accessible via the airports' monorail systems, and all three airports can be reached using public transportation.
"The availability of Zipcars at airports will provide increased options for members who may not need a full day rental car, or for those who need to travel somewhere not easily accessible by public transit," continued Norman. "We believe this is the first in many new offerings that will enhance the value of Zipcar membership that we can provide thanks to the support of the Avis Budget Group."
