Where to rent a Zipcar

Lewisham certainly isn’t lacking in Zipcars, so you don’t have to worry about going too far to find one that’s suitable.

Starting from Lewisham station, there are Zipcars located a brisk walk in a number of directions meaning you won’t waste much time getting your trip started. If you’re out in Forest Hill there is a Zipcar just outside the station, and one also outside Catford station. Brockley Station also has two Zipcars in close proximity, while starting in Blackheath is easy with one just a short walk down the road from the station adjacent to the huge park.

To make your journey as simple as possible, you’ll want to find the closest Zipcar to where you are. You can use the website or app for this and book out the chosen vehicle when you’ve found it. To get on your way all you need to do is make the short trip to where it’s parked and unlock the doors with your membership card of the app itself. That’s it, you’re ready to go.

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."*
