Did somebody say road trip?

As a student, you’ve got to know the ins and outs of college, meet as many people as possible, and explore the world off campus, too.

Wondering how to make the most of all this new-found freedom? Check out Zipcar.

Zipcar is a car-sharing service with vehicles on and off campus that lets you reserve cars by the hour or the day. (Gas and insurance is always included.) To join for $25, go to Enter the promo code FIRSTYEAR12 and you’ll get $40 in driving credit to get you started.

So whether you’re carless by choice, don’t want to deal with the hassles of bringing a car on campus, or just want to impress your new friends, check them out at today.

You can even ask for the gift of Zipcar from your friends or family so you can get started for free. (Repeat after the Zipcar team: “I’m saving my money for textbooks.”)

*Offer applies to students and expires on October 15, 2012.
