Cheap car sharing in Harrow – The Alternative to Car Hire

Cheap car sharing in Harrow – The Alternative to Car Hire

Situated in northwest London is Harrow. By car you visit plenty of green, open spaces, a nature reserve, a golf club and lots of restaurants and shops, with much more all over this borough. Due to the car sharing service we offer in Harrow, it’s a great starting point for a trip out into the country, either north into Hertfordshire, or west into Berkshire or Buckinghamshire where you can while away the day in one of the many villages dotted around the area.

As our service means you can rent cars and vans by the hour we offer flexibility that other can’t. We’re also very cost-effective so you won’t break the bank if you want to escape the city for a couple of days. Zipcar’s car sharing club is much simpler than traditional car hire too. It’s also far more environmentally friendly than owning your own car.

Where to rent a Zipcar

Getting to a Zipcar isn’t difficult. There is one based just around the corner from Canons Park tube station. A quick walk to the corner of Howard Road and Unwin Way will get you there. There are also a few more just across the border with three by Colindale station, and another three down south by Wembley Park station.

To make things convenient, it’s really easy to find the closest Zipcar to your location. Log on to the website or the mobile app and that will tell you exactly where to go. Once you’re at the car, you can use your membership card or the app, to magically unlock the doors. With the 60 miles, fuel, insurance costs, and congestion charges all included you’re ready to go. Once you’re finished with the car just park it back where you found it and you’re done!

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

Not having a car to get us around on errands or for pleasure, can be quite restrictive. But so is buying your own one what with the outright cost, insurance and repairs. Zipcar’s car club means you don’t have to worry about this as you can enjoy all the comforts of car ownership without any of the hassle. Whether it’s doing the weekly shop or visiting family, we have the cheaper and more convenient option.

If you’re after a relaxing day, then Harrow’s numerous parks are perfect for a picnic or kickabout. There’s also the Bentley Priory Nature Reserve. Here you can feel like your miles away from London as you stroll along one of the walks and trails, scout out some interesting wildlife, and enjoy some peace and quiet before you return to the energy of the capital.

You could also drive just across the border to visit the Hendon RAF Museum where you can learn everything you’d ever want to know about the Battle of Britain. There’s also the Harrow Museum which hosts different exhibitions throughout the year dedicated to local history.

The joy of having car means you can go further afield though. Why not completely escape London for the day? Heading west will bring you to the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This incredible place spans 322 square miles meaning there’s a huge amount to explore. There’s plenty of different walks to take, or you could just pitch up somewhere with a nice view and relax. If you’re wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, you’d be hard-pressed to find somewhere better.

If you’re looking for a way to get around that won’t just bring extra stress into your life, then Zipcar is the right choice for you.
