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.

Here at Zipcar HQ, we've been thinking about those Christmas traditions that really get you scratching your head. We thought you might like to hear about some of the stranger traditions across the globe (if our online research is to be believed!)

A delicious protein shake from Scramble in London

At Zipcar, we’ve teamed up with a wide range of businesses as part of Zipcar for Business. From our own experience, we know that it takes a sheer amount of passion and determination required to start a new business, which is why we love working with local start-ups and getting to know the people behind them.

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 Zipcar right outside our flat was booked during Monday's commute to work, and there was no going back – come the weekend, we were escaping this concrete jungle, seeking out fresh air, tranquillity and a oneness with nature."

Another weekend, another getaway in the Zipcar!  The poor Texan has been working like a dog lately, with late nights in the office on Fridays, and weekends ruined by endless meetings...

Rent Moola x Zipcar
These days, it's not all about ownership. In fact, many of us are shrugging off those financial burdens and complexity by opting for access and its comparative simplicity instead. We spoke to Sam Hall of RentMoola, a new platform that rewards renting, and got his idea on exactly what RGeneration is all about.
