4 simple steps to Zipcar freedom

1. join

If you're 18+ you can apply online in minutes. Once approved, you get your very own Zipcard and can start planning road trips.

2. reserve

Reserve a Zipcar from your desktop, phone, tablet - whatever has Internet. Take out cars for a couple hours or the entire day.

3. unlock

Hold your Zipcard to the windshield and BAM! Unlocked. Remember, gas and insurance are always free (like the 7 bananas you stole from the dining hall).

4. drive

Drive away... and return to the same reserved parking spot at the end of your reservation. That’s it!
