(Modo)

Road-trip, anyone?

In Victoria, many people use transit, walk or ride their bike, and don’t necessarily own a car of their own, due to either cost or lifestyle choice; it’s for these people that Modo’s carsharing service could be a complete game-changer!

If you’ve been on the fence when it comes to carsharing, now is the time to take the plunge – from parking issues to traffic, these problems are only on the rise as the population grows, and Modo offers the perfect affordable solution. Carsharing with Modo starts at just $5/hour, with gas, insurance and privileged parking included. They have a very diverse fleet of 700+ cars, trucks, SUVs and vans, to accommodate every kind of trip and suit every need in a fun and cost-effective way!

Modo isn’t new to the carsharing game – in fact, they were the very first carshare cooperative in North America – but the cooperative’s new ‘Open Return’ option takes the term “convenient” to a whole other level.

Open Return means that you have all of the freedom to use Modo’s car for as long as you like in a 24-hour period, and the flexibility to return it earlier than originally planned – you only pay for what you use! No more worries about running behind, padding time, or incurring late fees.

Here are 5 reasons you need to take advantage of Modo’s awesome Open Return option:

  1. You can have the best of both worlds – Whether you want the piece of mind of booking your car a year in advance, or the flexibility to decide on your drop-off time last minute, Modo has got you covered.
  2. You’re not always going to know how long you’ll need a car – and that’s okay! – Not quite ready to end that perfect first date, or is your lunchtime meeting running beyond its allotted time? No problem! You only pay for the time you used, even if you did book for longer than needed.
  3. Open Return is an affordable, convenient option – For less than the cost of a latte, Modo’s $3 Open Return fee offers the ultimate piece of mind that’s worth its weight in gold.
  4. The ultimate in flexibility – Without having to worry about late fines or padding extra time, you can return your vehicle anytime within a 24-hour time-frame – sounds like a no-brainer!
  5. Modo prides itself on being inclusive – Open Return is an available option for all membership types, and on all Daily Drive and Premium Vehicles.

Whether it’s for a road-trip with friends, to get you to your business meeting on time, or just to help accomplish your weekly grocery-shopping, Modo has the car for you!
