frequently asked questions
How do I pay for Zipcar?
Zipcar accepts all major credit cards: American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Diners Club. The application fee will be charged to your credit card when you apply. Membership fees are charged to your credit card once you receive and activate your Zipcard, or three days after you've been approved for membership, whichever comes first.
Driving charges are billed (and appear on your statement) when you make your reservation. If there are any additional charges (like tolls) during your trip, then we will add them at the end of your reservation.
To keep you zipping without interruption, if your Zipcar membership has an annual or monthly fee, it will be automatically charged to your credit card on file, too. Of course, you can view all of your statements online at any time to see any applied or pending charges.
