BOSTON, Aug. 1, 2013

BOSTON, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Beginning today, Zipcars will be
available by the hour or by the day for residents, businesses and visitors in
Denver. The service offers a smart, affordable and convenient alternative to
car ownership for savvy consumers; an alternative to pricey fleet vehicles for
businesses; and a fun and flexible option for people who need occasional
access to a different type of car, such as a convertible, hybrid, pickup or
SUV.

"The city of Denver has long been a leader in sustainability so we're thrilled
to now bring our 'wheels when you want them' to the Mile High City," said Mark
Norman. "Thanks to the city's support we're able to offer a wide variety of
vehicles parked at incredibly convenient locations, making it easier than ever
to shop at Costco, head out for a hike with friends, or simply feel the breeze
from a convertible."

Zipcar's simple hourly and daily rates include gas, reserved parking spots,
insurance, roadside assistance and up to 180 miles of driving per day. More
than 30 Zipcars can be reserved from a minute up to a year in advance, for as
short as an hour or for multiple days, giving members a flexible and reliable
option for transportation. Rates start as low as $9 per hour and $73 per day
(24 hours). Information on membership and an application are available at the
website at www.zipcar.com/denver.

Thanks to the city of Denver as part of its plan to encourage sustainable
transportation, seven Zipcars will be conveniently parked in curbside spots in
the downtown area. In addition, Zipcars will be parked at centrally located
private lots and garages throughout the city and at the Denver International
Airport.

"We are very excited to welcome Zipcar to Denver," said Jose Cornejo, Manager
of Denver Public Works. "In the Mile High City we are focused on providing
people with efficient, multi-modal transportation options. Zipcar's service
provides residents and visitors with an incredibly convenient, environmentally
responsible method of transportation."

Denver residents can reserve and drive a Ford Escape which has plenty of room
for skis and snowboards, plus all-wheel drive for heavy snow conditions. A
Toyota Prius or Mazda 3 Hatchback are other options to cruise out of the city
for a summer night concert at the Red Rock Amphitheatre, mountain biking at
the more than 20,000 acres of parkland in the nearby mountains or the various
film and food festivals for which the area is known.

Employees of local businesses in Denver will benefit from Zipcar's presence
through the Zipcar for Business program that offers discounted driving rates
Monday through Friday. This program helps businesses save money, meet
environmental sustainability goals and reduce parking requirements by
providing their employees with access to Zipcars for business needs and other
uses.
