Our AutoShare Year – 2008
As posted in 2006 but not 2007, I’ve created a spreadsheet detailing our AutoShare expenses for the past year. For those of you unfamiliar with AutoShare, they provide excellent cars for hourly usage in locations across Toronto. Ideal for trips in and out of the city that require less than a day; after that point a traditional rental usually offers better value.
My wife and I are on their basic $10/month plan and over the course of the year incurred $25.25 of “Idiot Fees” (last minute cancellations, extensions by phone, etc.). We are very happy with the service and whole-heartedly recommend it. If only the nearby Beer Store would cooperate and provide AutoShare a spot, it would save us a 1km walk to the closest car!
A nice bonus was a $25 referral fee in August! Those are very welcome, so keep us in mind if you sign up!
