Christmas unzipped

The countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun, and London is buzzing with activity! We’ve made a list of all of our Christmas musts, and a bit of insider advice on the best alternative places to do them to avoid the crowds:

Classic Mince Pie

No Christmas is complete without a mince pie! We love the giant pies at Brompton Food Market in Kensington. They’re buttery and boozy and full of spiced fruit, and we think they’re some of the best you’ll find anywhere!

We love to discover new places, but if there’s one thing we’re guilty of, it’s not exploring our own backyard enough. To remedy this, a few of the team at Zipcar have decided to share their secret spots and local knowledge to create a set of guides for the ultimate day out in London, borough by borough.

We’re beginning with Hackney, one of London’s most vibrant boroughs. It includes visits to our favourite spots, locally owned businesses and the best part is that it’s completely walkable.

Unlock London with the Zipcar App

Living in London teaches you to make the most of each and every sunny day, and that with the help of a smartphone and the app store, you can plan a day out at the touch of a button. So, when the sun made a rare appearance this week, a few of us in the Zipcar team knew we had to act fast. A day out of the office was cleared, and armed with just a smartphone, a camera, and a desire to be anywhere but indoors, we walked into the sunshine.

The summer holidays are coming to an end and with that, comes the great British autumn weather but fear not, Zipcar and Love Home Swap have teamed up to banish the holiday blues.

Running a business is expensive. For many companies, the costs involved in daily business operations can easily overtake the amount of profit being generated.

It now costs an average of £87 per square foot (just 30cm x 30cm) of office space in London, including rent, service charges and property taxes - findalondonoffice.co.uk

The amount of time and money required to recruit a new member of staff in the corporate world is astounding. And it isn’t just the initial hire cost either – just like when you buy a new car; you have to take into account the many different expenses associated with hiring an employee. Not to mention the resources, such as experienced staff member’s time, which you’ll have to dedicate to training a new recruit.

Almost all businesses could do with cutting recruitment costs.
