compare to hire

You could hire a car (but that would be silly).

Car hire is great if you don't mind standing in long queues. Not to mention, you're usually paying for fuel, insurance and parking. But that's not what the Zipcar way of life is all about. With Zipcar, you're free from paying for all three (they're included) and your Zipcard opens the door to any Zipcar in any Zipcar city – whether you're there for business or pleasure.


When considering hire cars over Zipcar, have a look below and think again:

Stand in a queue and wait for your hire car
OR
Book online or via one of our apps and pick up the car around the corner 24/7?
Pay for fuel, insurance and Congestion Charge
OR
Pay a low hourly or daily rate that includes insurance, the Congestion Charge and 60 miles of free fuel a day?
Race back to the rental depot sweaty and panicked to return your car before 5:00PM
OR
Extend your reservation using your mobile device, and then finish your meeting?
Listen to on-hold music for 45 minutes only to learn that the rental office is closed for the day
OR
Call Zipcar Member Services 24/7 and talk to a real person?
Take out a standard, entry level hatchback
OR
Reserve one of our luxury Zipcars and adjust to being comfortable. And happy.
