car hire made simple
- Zipcar is a car club - the world's largest 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 or 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."*
