Cheap car sharing in Camden – The Alternative to Car Hire

Cheap car sharing in Camden – The Alternative to Car Hire

Camden, well-known for its punk connotations, is one of the more vibrant boroughs in London. With mohicans and goths still a common sight, a simple walk near its famous market is interesting enough. It’s not all dyed hair and piercings though, there’s also a strong music scene and countless bars and restaurants worth a visit. Short term car rental in Camden is also the perfect way to head to boroughs new or head north into the British countryside.

Hiring out a car or van by the day or by the hour is a great way to get things done if you don’t own a car. By taking advantage of the cheap car sharing in Camden offered by Zipcar you can not only make your life easier, but you can save a lot of money compared to your average car owner and have a much lower carbon foot print than them too.

Where to rent a Zipcar

There’s no shortage of Zipcars in this borough. In the Camden Town area there are plenty of cars nearby along with more near to the Mornington Crescent and Chalk Farm. A bit further south around St Pancras you can find Zipcars in all directions from the station along with more all the way down Euston Road and Marylebone Road as far as Edgware station.

Finding your nearest Zipcar is as simple as logging onto your mobile app and looking on the map. Once you’ve decided on the car you want, you’re just a few simple steps away from getting your journey underway. All you need to do is use the app or website to book the vehicle you want, and then when you get to it just unlock it with your membership card. That’s all there is to it, plus insurance, congestions charges and 60 miles of travel are inclusive of the price.

Things to do

Whether it’s an everyday task or an exciting adventure, a car makes life a lot easier. Of course buying a car is incredibly expensive, especially when you factor in insurance and petrol. That’s why if you’re an occasional driver using Zipcar’s car club is the perfect alternative to car hire. No fuss, no hassle, and it’s affordable too.

There’s no shortage of places to go in Camden. The famous market in Camden Town pulls tourists from all over the world who want to pick up some clothes or just people watch. The banks of the river that flows through there are also perfect for a stroll in the summer, while during the colder months you can take advantage of the many music venues in the area, such as the Barfly or KoKo.

London isn’t the be all and end all though. Camden is a perfect place to start your short term car hire out into the country and unsurprisingly there’s plenty to see out there. Hertfordshire is just north of Camden and well worth looking around. Places like St Albans and Hatfield are perfect for a day trip where you can take a relaxed walk through the towns and see some history. St Albans has its beautiful cathedral and architecture while Hatfield has galleries, museums and a nine screen cinema.

If you’re more of a nature person then you might want to consider the half hour trip up to Epping Forest. Here you can take some riverside walks, seek out some wildlife you won’t see in the city, or have a picnic. The forest is also a big attraction to sporting types, particularly mountain bikers, so if you want to make your lifestyle more active, Epping Forest could be the place for you.

Using Zipcar means you can enjoy all the comfort of owning a car without the negatives that come with it. Don’t be constrained by cost, our car club can get you where you need to go.
