Zipcar

Zipcar gives you wheels when you want them!

Thinking about everything you need to do for back to school can get a little overwhelming. You need to buy books, enroll in the best classes, start a prank war and stock up on snacks. It’s exhausting. Zipcar can’t help with the pranks or classes, but they can get you off campus to stock up on everything else you might need if you’re not bringing a car to campus.

Zipcar is a member-based car-sharing service on campus that allows 18+ students to use their cars by the hour or the day with gas and insurance always included. So, if you decide to leave the car at home to save on parking and insurance, then Zipcar can help you get off campus, get home to visit your parents or head out on a road trip with the people from your hall.

To celebrate the new school year, Zipcar is taking $10 off your annual fee and giving your first $25 in driving for free. Make sure to enter promo code: B2S2013 when you sign up at zipcar.com/unc.
