Cheap car sharing in Lambeth – The Alternative to Car Hire

Just south of the river is the borough of Lambeth. It’s full of things to do so it’s always worth a drive around. It has its fair share of landmarks, parks, and culture. There’s also plenty of places to spend the day shopping with excellent museums on offer too. Whether it’s getting groceries or soaking up some culture, the cheap car sharing in Lambeth we offer is the best way to do it.

To get around the borough or further afield, you might be thinking about short term car hire. We let you rent cars and vans by the hour, which means we offer ultimate flexibility. You won’t have to worry about shelling out for a day rate when you only need a vehicle for a few hours. It’s the best way to get things done without making you bankrupt.

Where to rent a Zipcar

Lambeth is chock full of Zipcars and vans so no matter where you’re starting your drive it won’t be hard to find one quickly.

If you’re heading off to Clapham, there’s plenty of Zipcars available within walking distance of the stations there, whilst over in Brixton there are cars nearby in numerous directions from the station. Streatham station has a Zipcar on either side of its tracks and there are plenty over at Waterloo and Southwark. Kennington also has plenty of cars to choose from around its station.

When you’ve got your trip all planned out, it’s time to get going. To find the Zipcar cloest to you, simply use the website or our app and use the map. Here you can have a look at the different cars on offer and pick the one most suited to you. Then all you have to do is take a short trip to the car and unlock it with your membership card or the app and you’re ready to go. We also include 60 miles of travel, insurance costs, fuel, and congestion charges in the price.

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.

Things to do

There’s so much to do in Lambeth that you could show up any day of the year and there will be something to pique your interest. Two amazing venues play a big role in this – the Royal Festival Hall and Brixton Academy. Between them they put on a huge variety of shows all year round meaning no matter what your tastes are, at some point there will be something that caters for you. Parking is accessible in both of these places, so you could be treating yourself to anything from a philosophy talk to a gig from the day’s most popular bands.

On the other hand, you might be on the lookout for some green space to relax in and enjoy a bit of nature. A drive down to Brockwell Park would be a great start with its ornamental garden, ponds and expansive areas of grass. There’s also Streatham Common which is a designated nature reserve. A perfect place for a family picnic, the common is also used as an open air theatre in the summer.

If you’re looking to bring back some bargains using our car club, there is a weekly car boot sale in Brixton every Sunday. If you’re after some more traditional retail therapy, your best bet is to head to Streatham. It boasts the biggest shopping area in Lambeth and a fantastic ice rink nearby where you can safely leave the kids, before finishing off the day with a decent family meal in a local restaurant.

Of course you could be looking to get outside the city and there’s plenty of places to visit south of Lambeth. A short 50 minute drive south will bring you to Biggin Hill where you can imbibe some country air. With Lumberdine Wood and Titsey Park nearby, it’s the perfect place to head for a walk with the family. Further south across the M25 is Chartwell where you’ll find another two places perfect for a getaway walk: Squerryes Park and Crockhamhill Common.

Zipcar’s car club is the ultimate solution for the occasional driver.
