Is Zipcar For Me?



The beauty of the Zipcar community is that we're all different. Members use Zipcar as an alternative to the costs and hassle of owning or renting a car. It's also more flexible than public transport.

But if you're unsure if Zipcar is for you, we've put together some scenarios.


I want to save money

Zipcar members report an average monthly saving of around £300 compared to car ownership. Whether you're a car owner or a taxi taker, with car clubs there are savings to go around.

I take public transport, but need a car sometimes

Public transport and taxis can't always get you where you need to go.

I don't want the hassle of owning a car

Maybe you're looking to shed a car, or maybe you're looking for a way to never have to own at all. Either way, Zipcars practically take care of themselves: they have parking spaces, plus cleaning and maintenance crews.

I want to do my part to take care of our planet

Zipcars are good for the planet and the wallet. Each Zipcar shared takes at least 20 personally-owned vehicles off the road.

I want to impress my boss

We have a couple of solutions: take them out in a swanky Zipcar, or save your company time and money by joining Zipcar for Business. We see a promotion in your future.
