Zipcar saves the day

Not only are Zipcars handy for the everyday stuff like dropping off the kids or nipping to the shops – our members are always keen to share how Zipcars have helped create an opportunity or solve a problem – like this one from Amalia Pacquola.

Amalia Pacquola loves cakes – she is a passionate baker and spends lots of her time in the kitchen cooking up tasty treats for friends and family. Amalia uses Zipcars to deliver her cakes to her lucky friends who live all over London.  ‘I love making cakes and last year I made a beautiful 3 tier wedding cake for my friends’ wedding. She was getting married in Richmond park – so I hired a Zipcar to transport the cake (very carefully!) over to the venue.’

After she’d set up the cake, Amalia decided to pop into her friend as she was getting ready at a hotel nearby – ‘While I was there, the bride received a phone call to say that the taxi her family were in were  totally lost. Her parents don’t speak English and so were at a loss to direct the driver. I used my Zipcar to dash off and meet them and deliver them safely to the wedding venue. Zipcar saves the day!’
















Amalia has just moved from Clapham to Kennington and once again called on her local Zipcar to lend a hand in moving her stuff ‘It’s so easy as it’s parked right outside my house. I just reserve it via the app. What I love about Zipcar is the freedom of knowing that if I want to do something with a car, I can. Sometimes I just miss zipping around in a car, and with Zipcar I can.‘

If you ever need a Zipcar in a hurry you can always book one on the run with our handy app for mobile and android. Tell us one of your own stories if you like  – just drop us a line at
