Often getting to that perfect trail, moving into a new flat, buying new furniture and even just to get away at the spur of the moment requires a car. Many of us don’t want to own a vehicle in a city as it is not very practical, nor good for the environment, and we don’t have to as there is usually good public transport.
But for all those moments when a car is essential, there are car sharing schemes! Car shares are amazing. I belong to Zip Car and there are many parked with a five-minute radius of my house. My mobile phone unlocks them and it is only about £5/hour to rent a cute VW Golf. There are also vans for moving, which was helpful to pick-up my new kitchen island. Greatest thing: petrol and insurance are included. Too easy. I may never own a car again.
