Cheap car sharing in Redbridge – The Alternative to Car Hire

Cheap car sharing in Redbridge – The Alternative to Car Hire

Sitting just north of the Thames is the borough of Redbridge. With its own golf course, parks, shops and museums, there’s always plenty to do here. It’s also a perfect place to start a journey outside of the capital, either east into Essex or north into Hertfordshire. With cheap car sharing in Redbridge made available by us, you won’t consider using traditional car hire ever again.

Using Zipcar’s car sharing club is a great way to explore the capital and to go further afield especially as you can rent cars and vans by the hour. Zipcar’s service is simple, can fit around your needs, and is often cheaper. It’s perfect for a day out with the kids, a trip to a car boot sale, or for a big shop. It’s also much greener than owning a car yourself.

Where to rent a Zipcar

Getting to a Zipcar isn’t difficult in Redbridge. Head down to Ilford or Seven Kings station and there are three of them easily within walking distance. There’s also another car just over the border in Romford by the main station. If you’re nearer the west of the borough, a quick trip over to Walthamstow will put you close to another 20 cars or so.

Once you’ve chosen which car your want, it’s time to get going. Get on your computer or phone and log on to the app or website. From there, select your car and book it out. Then make your way to the vehicle and unlock it with your membership card. To make things more convenient, the price of car hire also includes 60 miles of travel, insurance costs, and any congestion charges.

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."*

4 Simple Steps to Zipcar Freedom

Things to do

Zipcar gives you the ability to travel as you please without having to pay for your own car. Not only is that costly, but it’s bad for the environment too. Our car club means you get a vehicle when you need one for as long as you need it, while not producing a massive carbon footprint. So whether you’re simply getting the groceries or taking a road trip, Zipcar is here to help you do it.

This borough has plenty to offer. There’s a wide selection of parks you could drive up to enjoy a nice walk or kickabout with the kids, while there’s also the Redbridge Museum in Ilford. If you’re a fan of picking up some bargains, you could head north just past the border to the Picks Cottage Car Boot Sale.

You don’t just have to stick to London though. Short term car rental with Zipcar gives you the chance to head much further afield and have a unique day out.

You could head east and visit Hadleigh Country Park, where you can get a breath of fresh air and see the Thames meet the sea. It’s an unforgettable place to visit where you can go on long walks, cycle, and see some amazing examples of wildlife and nature you’d be hard-pressed to find in London. You can even explore on horseback, or you could simply pitch up somewhere for a picnic and enjoy the scenery.

If you’re after some history, you could take the car up to St Albans in Hertfordshire. There you can see beautiful old churches, Roman walls, and enjoy a walk around this historic city. It’s a haven for keen shoppers as St Albans is home to many speciality boutiques and independent retailers.

Our service is for everyone who wants a bit more freedom in their life when it comes to travelling. That’s why we always aim to be affordable and flexible.
