The genius of car sharingit's like owning a car, without the sucky parts

Car sharing is kinda’ like car rental, but way better

You reserve wheels when you want them, by the hour or day (online or in the Zipcar app) and only pay for the time you use them. And unlike a car rental, there’s no waiting in line at the counter.

  • Save time & money

    Car sharing saves you hundreds over car ownership. Plus, you never have to worry about finding the time to get routine maintenance performed. Zipcars are cleaned and taken care of all year round.

  • No hidden fees

    Our low rates include everything you need to get behind the wheel. Gas, insurance and 180 miles* a day are all included in the price of the trip. Ah, simplicity.

  • Go beyond public transit

    Car sharing is the perfect complement to the bus and train. So when you need to carry home a ton of groceries, move a bureau across town, or feel like getting away for the weekend, get behind the wheel.

  • Super convenient

    12,000 Zipcars are parked in cities, airports, and on campuses around the world. As a member, your Zipcard unlocks ‘em all. You’ve got 24/7 access to clean, comfy rides.

  • Unlock a variety of cars

    Zipcars come in all shapes and sizes – compact sedans, luxury SUVs, spacious vans – and the vehicle you choose is the vehicle you get. Switch it up whenever you feel like it.
