Car Sharing in London – The Alternative to Car Hire and Ownership

Car Sharing in London – The Alternative to Car Hire and Ownership

London. One of the world's great cities - historic, cosmopolitan and ever-changing. It's one of the most exciting places on the planet to live, and a feature of every discerning traveller's bucket list. From the inner city medieval castle that is the Tower of London, to the cutting edge cultural and tech district of Shoreditch, there's a corner of London for everyone.

Most of the time you can get by on London's public transport network. But it's a big city with lots to do, and sometimes you just need a car. Even though we have lots of locations around central boroughs like Westminster, we’ve grown our network to make sure as many Londoners as possible have easy access to a Zipcar. From Enfield in the North to Croydon in the South, from Havering in the East to Hounslow in the West, there’s something for you.

Where to find Zipcars in London

Zipcars are all over the place. No matter where you are in London – North, South, East, West – there'll be a Zipcar available for hire near you.

We don’t just concentrate on the politicians and workers in Westminster, we’ve made sure as many Londoners as possible have easy access to a Zipcar. From Enfield in the North to Croydon in the South, from Havering in the East to Hounslow in the West, there’s something for you.

Wherever you are in London, there's a Zipcar close by. From central to the suburbs, if you've got your smartphone or Zipcar club membership card, you'll be able to get an hourly car hire to go wherever you want for whatever you need, including vans for moving house or picking up large items.

Just use the app to find a nearby vehicle, reserve it and you can unlock it with your card or phone - cheaper than traditional car hire, with far less waiting around.

Why Choose Zipcar

  • Zipcar is a car cub - the world's leading car club network currently operating in London, Bristol, Oxford, Cambridge and Maidstone (and another 50+ cities across Europe and North America).
  • Joining Zipcar gives you access to the car or van you need when you need it, perfectly maintained but with none of the hassle or expense of ownership.
  • Zipcar is far simpler and more convenient than conventional car hire. Once a member, when you need a car, just choose your make and model from the great selection parked around your local area; get in and drive off.
  • "One Zipcar helps take 17 privately owned vehicles off the road in the UK."*

4 Simple Steps to Zipcar Freedom

How to enjoy your car share experience

Whether you're just visiting or a thoroughbred Londoner, there's always something new to see in this great city.

Visit Greenwich and see the Cutty Sark, Greenwich Park and the Observatory all in one go. Head to Portobello Road on a Saturday to see the street market and the galleries, or park up and visit the Imperial War Museum and nearby Cuming Museum.

How about driving out to Richmond Park for the afternoon? Away from the hustle and bustle of London’s streets, you can enjoy a picnic whilst wild deer graze nearby.

Why not use your Zipcar to get out of the city for the day? Drive down to the coast and spend an afternoon taking in the Brighton seafront, playing the penny arcades on the pier and discovering the boutique shops of The Lanes.

Maybe you’ve had enough of London’s green spaces and want somewhere with a bit more fresh air. National beauty spots like the Chilterns and Box Hill are barely an hour from central London by car.

Zipcar is about being able to do all the great things you can only do with a car, without the expense and hassle of running your own vehicle, and with a smaller carbon footprint. Save time, money and the environment, without limiting your life.
