Hopefully this deal applies to all of them! (I'm in Toronto)
Great service, check it out and see how it compares. They include gas & insurance (don't forget that!). On a recent trip where I needed a rental, it was cheaper to go with these guys versus a traditional company (last minute) just for the fact that they were covering my gas (I did a lot of driving, maybe $30-40 in gas).
Edit: They have a referral program, but that link is not a part of it. That is not my personal referral, the posted link is the one found through the RFD ad.
Why this is good
If the membership is free and they'll even give you a small credit to sign up, you'll be a member, ready to drive when you need it. Concert, Dinner, Club Night, Friend's House, anything ...
Since you are billed by the minute, you can take quick trips when you need to (under 1 hour) and drop the car off right on the street. This is not a traditional rental and people have to get passed the idea of renting. If more people thought of it as wheels for a little bit to get them somewhere faster (when they aren't out with a car), I think a lot more people would sign up for this. I'm a fully insured, car owner and yet I STILL use Car2Go.
This company is great for SHORT rentals - a few hours - not entire days!
