We believe car sharing should be simple, which is why each trip includes:
• 60 miles a day, then from £0.25p/mile
• Comprehensive insurance
• 24/7 breakdown cover
• Congestion Charge
What cars can I drive?
We have 3,000 vehicles for you to choose from, including vans and luxury cars too. We also have 325 electric cars you can try out.
What’s the difference between Roundtrip and Flex?
Roundtrip cars and vans live in their own dedicated bay. Just look for the green pin in our app and book. When you’re done park it in the same bay you picked your Zipcar up from.
Flex is our one way service. Search for the blue pins in our app, reserve and we’ll hold it for 15 minutes. Once you’re done just drop it off (almost anywhere!) in the Zipzone.
Do you have a business offering?
Business members get up to 29% off standard rates, and options for their own branded vehicles too. To find out if you’re eligible just search Zipcar for Business
