It's a great thing to keep in your back pocket if you live in an eligible city just in case you need a car.
The cars are awful and it's pretty expensive to rent (relatively speaking) but sometimes you can't beat the convenience.

For those in Vancouver, Evo might be a better option.
Same pricing roughly but bigger cars.
Plus a slightly better home area that includes free Airport.

Personally I have a membership to Car2go, Modo and Evo for specific use cases.

I too have a Car2Go membership while I still own and drive a car. There are just times when you'd like to hop in a car, it's for 1-way travel, unlike everything else in Toronto (ZipCar / Enterprise). It became even more flexible as you can park at standard street parking spots now.
Just this week, we were talking about using it to go to the Christmas market.

So if you register and then never use it, are there any fees at all?

Could be useful to rent one of these golfcarts during the holiday season. Like it or not, this is the future of intracity travel.

The most convenient form of travel available downtown right now (at an affordable price). Almost any travel within the core is a lot cheaper than taking an Uber (especially if there are two passengers). The new models of the smart cars are actually an immense upgrade over the originals and unlock a lot quicker.

Mmmmh... someone who signed up could answer my question ? The promo code is to register for free but what is the register fee ? On the sign up page it says 5$ registration fee and on the pdf sent to my email address, for Montreal, it says 40.24 $ "One time sign up fee". How much do we end up to pay only to create the account ?

I have Car2Go membership and was recently given some free minutes to use....Just want to know more about

" even more flexible as you can park at standard street parking spots now"

Can you park at meters? or do you mean side streets with permits. I found it much easier to discipher where to park in Vancouver but I'm scared to try it in Toronto because it can cost $50 or more for a parking ticket.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

It use to be that you could only park in registered Green p lots, so you would end up using the app to find the correct lot.
Now, Car2Go is letting everyone park on the street and they will move the car for you.
I haven't done it personally so I can't comment on actual meters where you are suppose to pay, but i am pretty sure there's a write up about what is and isn't allowed on their site.
There was a whole FAQ about it.

Edit: Looks like the answer is no to meter parking.
