Surviving the G20 protests!

London, April 1st 2009 - If the images of today's riots got you worried about getting to work or circulating around London tomorrow, Worry no more! The Zilok community is here to help you.

A website where people can rent anything to and from anyone can help you bypass the G20 protests and make sure you keep your job while you still have it!

To make sure you can safely get from A to B within London during the G20, offers a wide selection of helmets across town, for just £5 a day.
Ladies who want to protect their heads in Style can even choose from more fashionable models such as this Hello Kitty design in West London:

If you are a bit too claustrophobic for helmets, or just curious to see the protests, you may also hire Stilts for only £10, right in the centre of town:

However, if you happen to be a recently famous banker, Zilok highly recommends renting a Batman Mask if you really must travel within London this week...

And if you decide to stay home after all, how about making a few quid renting your helmet, stilts, masks or anything else online?

I booked titkecs for me and my family to fly to Cape Town on Mango and then requested a quote from Tempest ti hire a car. After looking up Tempest on the internet I received a quote that was more than the figures listed on your site. I have subsequently provisionally booked a car with a competitor at a lower rate. I battled to get the link from Mango to Tempest to work on about 8 occassions.
