Zipcar, the world’s leading car sharing network, is a cost-effective and sustainable membership based option for exploring with plenty of vehicles conveniently parked close to hotels.
Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
Provenance Hotels, with six locations in Washington and Oregon, is raising the bar on sustainable travel by partnering with the experts in car sharing services and electric vehicle technology – Zipcar and Tesla Motors – to make it even easier and more affordable for guests to use alternative transportation when visiting the eco-conscious cities of Portland, Seattle and Tacoma.
Provenance Hotels’ art-filled hotels are conveniently located downtown within steps of each city’s light rail routes, making them the perfect getaways for those who want to go car free. When guests who are Zipcar members need or want to venture further, Zipcar, the world’s leading car sharing network, is a cost-effective and sustainable membership based option for exploring with plenty of vehicles conveniently parked close to hotels. To incentivize guests to try car sharing by becoming new Zipcar members, Zipcar and Provenance Hotels have partnered to offer $50 in free driving credit when travelers sign up for Zipcar’s Occasional Driving Plan or a Monthly Rate Plan of $6/month. Guests who are already Zipcar members can enjoy $15 in free driving. For more information please visit, http://www.zipcar.com/provenancehotels.
Two new Zipcars – a BMW X1 and a Cadillac ATS – have checked in at Hotel deLuxe. Parked in the hotel’s lot, they are available for Zipcar members to use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Reservations can be made easily and quickly via the Zipcar app on members’ smartphones, online or by phone. Zipcar discounts for guests of Provenance Hotels can be accessed through the hotels’ websites and links included in guest reservation confirmations. Guests signing up for Zipcar must apply online for membership prior to their stay and have their Zipcard on hand for their reservation.
For those who prefer to bring along their own eco-friendly electric vehicles, Provenance Hotels has partnered with Tesla, the world leader in electric vehicle technology, to install two Tesla high power connectors and one standard electric vehicle charger in each of the parking garages at Hotel Max in Seattle, Hotel Murano in Tacoma and Hotel deLuxe in Portland. These EV and Tesla charging stations are available to both hotel guests and for public use with no extra charge beyond standard parking fees. Tesla owners can easily locate these chargers using the Tesla navigation app on their smartphone phone or in-car display. Tesla charging stations will also be added to Hotel 1000 in Seattle in the near future.
