car_mini_270x200-2 Although we don’t personally drive, our vehicle-loving friends are certain to dig the new rent-by-the-hour service Connect by Hertz. Now in operation in New York, London and Paris, the scheme allows members ($50/year) to rent fully-gassed cars by the day or hour — from just $8.50 per hour, including petrol. The actual vehicles range from the eco-friendly Toyota Prius to far more stylish BMW Minis (above). Launching in 20 more cities soon, Connect cars come equipped with iPod adapters, GPS systems. Let’s hope — at least in my case — with a driver as well.
