opening up To release the ignition key press the button in the top left hand corner, just like in any VW vehicle. To open the boot, put your fingers under the handle and push up on the button. For the bonnet use the lever found in the passenger side footwell.

getting started Push both the clutch and the brake down while you turn the key in the ignition to start the engine. Note that when you turn off the ignition, you’ll need to remove the key and reinsert it to start the car again.


steering lock Trying to turn the ignition but it won’t turn fully or connect? You’ll probably find the steering wheel lock is on. To release, give the wheel a firm wiggle from side to side.


fuel it up The fuel flap just flips open, then just twist the cap. There’s no key required, but the vehicle must be unlocked. Be sure to double check which type of fuel your Zipcar drinks before filling up (you’ll find this on your booking confirmation and/or a sticker inside the fuel flap).


for a rainy day You’ll find the wiper controls on the right hand side lever off the steering wheel. The symbols on the stalk indicate how to operate the different settings. Tip: if the front wipers aren’t working, check that the bonnet is shut properly. If the rear wipers aren’t working, then it may be that the boot isn’t closed properly.
