4 Simple Steps to Zipcar Freedom


1. join

Apply online today. It only takes a few minutes. Once you’re approved, you get your very own Zipcard and can start planning road trips.

2. reserve

Reserve a Zipcar – for a couple hours or the entire day. Do it online or on your mobile.
We’re easy.


3. unlock

Walk to the car and hold your Zipcard to the windshield for a few seconds. The doors will unlock and it’s all yours!


4. drive

Drive away... and return to the same reserved parking spot at the end of your reservation. That’s it! (And remember, gas and insurance are included.)

Is Zipcar for me?

How to reserve & unlock a Zipcar


It's easy peasy. You reserve a car using our mobile app or website. Then walk to the car, scan in with your Zipcard, and go!
