A GREEN Car Rental Company



Have you heard about VroomVroomVroom?

I have to admit I haven’t used their service yet (being in an armchair travel phase at the moment), but I just LOVE their commitment to pay all of the carbon offsets for all car rentals reserved through them. You can check out all the details at their green car rental page. I did however, talk to the friendly folks at VroomVroomVroom and here’s what they had to say about themselves and their services:

We all need car rentals. They’re convenient, they take you places, and you can fit a lot of junk in the trunk. Not does VroomVroomVroom love cars, but they also love the environment – what’s the use, after all, of having a car rental if you can’t drive through forests, or to the beach, or to nature reserves? A lot of other companies aren’t so thoughtful. They’ll send you off in a car without thinking about the impact we’re having on all things green. Or, they’ll make you pay the extra to cover green programmes, but how can you trust your hard-earned money is going to the right place?

Esteemed nature expert Kermit the Frog once said ‘it’s not easy being green’. Perhaps the good folk living on Sesame Street weren’t aware of just how easy it really is! VroomVroomVroom makes it very easy, because we do all the hard stuff for you, like calculating your carbon emissions, and then off-setting them with environmentally friendly projects. The best part? It doesn’t cost customers a dime – they look after everything for you.

So how do we do it? First, we work out what your carbon emission is based on a simple calculation – burning one gallon of gas produces around 20 pounds of carbon dioxide. Then we factor in how far you drive, and what car you’ve chosen to book through VroomVroomVroom.

Next, they do the responsible thing and, through our partnership with The CarbonNeutral Company, they pay to off-set your carbon emissions. The CarbonNeutral Company are good people – they’ve worked in climate change for more than 10 years, and have over 200 carbon off-set programs around the world, including renewable energy, waste reduction, resource conservation, and forestry projects. All of their programs are reviewed by an Independent Advisory Group of experts, so we know they’re the real deal!

You see, it really is easy being green when you book with VroomVroomVroom. You can hire a car and go as many miles as you please, and know that like us, you’re green at heart.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
