Connect by Hertz - Car Sharing - Free Membership (Usually £50)

I've seen Streetcar andZip car deals on here, both looked pretty good, thought I'd post this one by Connect which I took up as I think its a better deal.

Free membership for a limited time.

Its my first deal I'm posting here, I only just signed up.

This is not the same as Car Hire, if you don't know about the concept of car Sharing then please read about it before voting cold.

The occasional shopper who needs boot space for their bargains. Savvy business owners that don't want to pay fleet costs. Green conscious motorists who want to help the enviroment.

There are 122 cars in 68 locations in London - good if you live in London

Why did this get only 34 degrees? This is an excellent deal IMHO but given it got only 34 degrees, I never saw it .. Sometimes this web site amazes me - the amount of crap that gets super super hot and then actual good deals are totally overlooked.

Compared to streetcar:
- initial membership fee: £0 with Hertz for the 1st year vs. £50 for Streetcar
- hourly rate: £3.99 with Hertz vs. £4.99 for Streetcar (for the cheapest car)

Looks like Hertz gives you £20 of free credit when joining by typing code 1151. Also there is £5.05 of Topcashback (I think when you make your first booking? Not sure).

They have two cars in my street - I just registered.
