Cheap car sharing in Barnet – the Alternative to Car Hire

Cheap car sharing in Barnet – the Alternative to Car Hire

Situated just south of the M25, Barnet is not only an excellent place to visit, it’s also perfect to start a journey north of the capital. With museums, parks, and restaurants located within and the expansive countryside just beyond its borders, car sharing in Barnet is a great way to visit them all and have the perfect day out.

With the ability to hire by the hour, getting a car or van in Barnet is a much cheaper and more flexible alternative to traditional car hire. Zipcars will ensure you can get what you need to do done, whether it’s in Barnet or beyond. Moving house, visiting the family, or doing the weekly shop is a piece of cake without the bother of having your own car – not to mention hiring means you’ll have a much lower carbon footprint.

Where to Rent a Zipcar

Once you’ve decided to use Zipcar, it’s easy to get to one of our vehicles in Barnet. If you head to Finchley Central station, you’ll find three Zipcars within walking distance, while in the west side of the borough you can find three near Colindale station.

The first step is logging onto the Zipcar app or website, finding the car you want and where it is, and then booking it out. Then it’s just a matter of showing up and unlocking the vehicle with your membership card or mobile app. To make this even easier, we include 60 miles of travel, congestion charges and insurance costs in the price.

Why Choose Zipcar

  • Zipcar is a car cub - the world's leading car club network currently operating in London, Bristol, Oxford, Cambridge and Maidstone (and another 50+ cities across Europe and North America).
  • Joining Zipcar gives you access to the car or van you need when you need it, perfectly maintained but with none of the hassle or expense of ownership.
  • Zipcar is far simpler and more convenient than conventional car hire. Once a member, when you need a car, just choose your make and model from the great selection parked around your local area; get in and drive off.
  • "One Zipcar helps take 17 privately owned vehicles off the road in the UK."*

Things to Do

Aside from the great choices in restaurants and shops in Barnet, you can also drive up to the RAF Museum there. You can see some of the famous planes from aviation history, including a set of planes from the Battle of Britain.

If golf is more your thing there are two courses; the South Herts Golf Course and the Metro Golf Centre. If you prefer your green spaces without balls and clubs, there’s Monken Hadley Common in the north of the borough and Edgwarebury and Watling Park in the west. All are perfect for day’s wander or a relaxed picnic.

Of course a Zipcar is a great way to escape the city for the day. So why not head north to Welwyn Garden City. Only a 40 minute drive away, you can enjoy gold, a dry ski slope, tennis, squash, a gym and bowls. You can also leisurely explore the town and enjoy the beautiful gardens, making it the perfect place to get away from the stress and noise of London.

You could also drive out east to Chelmsford. Here you could load the car up with lots of shopping, while finishing a day of shopping in one of the many high-quality restaurants there. There’s also museums, parks, and the Tropical Wings Zoo. No matter what you’re interested in, there’s something for everyone.
