Re:Member is a series of helpful tips and reminders for Peg City Car Co-op members.
This month’s topic: Winter readiness!
Winter driving in Winnipeg is a horse of a different colour, but we are here with all the right gear to get your through it!
From November to April, all of our vehicles are outfitted with winter tires (even some of the big car rental companies don’t do this seasonal swap) and windshield scrapers, and more than half of our fleet has heated seats and back-up cameras to make your trip a little easier–and a lot warmer.
It’s important to remember that road conditions can be a bit unpredictable in the winter, so booking extra time on either side of your trip is a good idea. MPI always shares thoughtful and thorough tips on how to keep yourself (and your car) safe during the winter months. Practicing defensive driving is also important; give yourself and others plenty of room to stop on those icy streets.
Members benefit from daily rate caps and free overnight hours, making multi-day bookings over the winter holidays an easy, affordable option! Members pay $40/day (plus kms) and those on the Member Plus plan pay just $24/day (plus kms).
In the event of an inclement weather – a brutal cold snap, blizzard, or notice from the City to minimize all non-essential road travel – we will cancel current bookings at no charge to our members.
