Warmer weather is on the horizon, and you’re making plans. 

It’s time to go to festivals, plan camping trips, go on hikes and take in spectacular views… but you kind of need a car.

Luckily, we’re in the “no car, no problem” camp, because there are some amazing alternatives that can also save you a pretty penny. 

Communauto is a Canadian car-share company that makes it easy to get a ride when you need it for as little as $30 a day!

With a car-share, you only have to pay for a car when you need it. All those other pricey costs, like insurance, gas, parking, and maintenance are covered for you. And that’s nothing to sneeze at! According to RateHub, the cost of car ownership for Canadians is over $1300 a month! 

If you only need a car for the occasional trip or grocery haul, why not just pay for what you need? You can even rent a Communauto car for as little as $3.95/hour. All the more reason to really hustle while you’re at Costco… 

Here are all the perks of using Communauto for your next trip or errand day!

Everything’s Included

We’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. When you rent a Communauto car-share, you’re only paying for what you need. Owning a car means you’re constantly forking over cash for things like gas, maintenance, repairs, and insurance. And that’s not even considering things like financing, interest, and depreciation! 

Communauto has all that covered. Plus, you’ll see the full cost breakdown before you even book, so there are no surprises. 

Flexible Plans

Borrow a vehicle for the afternoon, or book it for the whole week. Communauto has car share options for every itinerary. Maybe you live downtown and don’t really need a car – except there’s a stellar find on Marketplace and you really don’t want to haul that plant shelf on the bus. 

That’s what flex trips are for! Book a car the day you need it, and drop it off when you’re done. There are pick-up and drop-off locations throughout Edmonton and Calgary, so you don’t have to worry about any hassle. 

Parking Freedom

Who else loves circling the block again and again searching for parking? That’s right, nobody. With a car share, your parking is all included, so you don’t have to bother with the meter. So this must be what celebrities feel like…

It’s Super Easy

Open the app, find a car, leave it – wherever! If you just need a car for a short trip, Communauto’s one-way FLEX rides are available 24/7 within defined central areas of both Calgary and Edmonton. 

Find a car near you, drive it to where you need to go, and leave it when you get there. What could be easier?
