GuideAdvisor Partners With Zipcar


GuideAdvisor, a website dedicated to showcasing tour guides and adventure guides around the world, and Zipcar, the largest car sharing and car club service on the planet, have formed a unique partnership that will see members of both enjoy exclusive discounts of up to 70%.

Travellers who sign up for GuideAdvisor’s VIP program (for free) will not only receive up to 20% discounts on featured guided trips in countries all over the globe, they will also be able to join Zipcar for $30 a year (rather than the normal price of $100/year) and will receive a $30 driving credit and discounted Zipcar4Business rates during the week.

This partnership came about because GuideAdvisor and Zipcar share something in common: the belief that there are smarter ways to travel. In the case of Zipcar, it’s a matter of joining and having access to a number of different kinds of cars in many city centres without worrying about the hassles of automobile ownership. And GuideAdvisor’s belief is that hiring a tour guide or adventure guide is the better way to travel because it saves time and hassles.

“This is the perfect timing for us because we’ve seen unprecedented growth since we launched last year and we’re now looking to partner with like-minded companies,” says GuideAdvisor’s founder Nick Clayton. “We’re in the process of redefining the travel market by switching emphasis from the places being visited to the people you meet in those places. And ZipCar is a great fit because they too are in the business of redefining markets.”

GuideAdvisor was launched 10 months ago and is quickly growing to be the largest online source of guides and guided experiences on earth. Currently the site showcases approximately 1,000 tour guides and adventure guides in 61 countries as well as 2,000 guided trips. For a limited time only, travellers can sign up for free and automatically be entered into the VIP program which includes the Zipcar savings mentioned above as well as discounts on many different guided trips such as:

  • Save 10% on a guided sightseeing tour of the beautiful Amalfi Coast in Italy

  • Save 15% on a guided driving tour around the famous city of Casablanca, Morocco

  • Save 20% on a guided hiking tour around natural rock jacuzzis in Georgia, USA

“We are excited about this new beginning with Zipcar and the benefits it will bring all of our travellers,” Nick Clayton says. “Together we’re going to redefine how people travel.”
