tips and tricks
Get the low-down on some easy ways to get more zip outta your membership.
It Pays to Have Friends
Tell your friends about Zipcar. You’ll both score free drive time when they join (and you get a new chauffeur).
Monday Fun Day
Weekends get all the attention. Boost your week by booking a Zipcar between Monday and Friday—and you’ll cash in on a lower hourly rate.
Try Something New
Don’t follow the crowd. Reserving a Zipcar on the edge of town can earn you a lower hourly rate than downtown wheels.
