My reservation appears as N/A when I search for the free cars on on zipcar.com. Will it still be free?
Yes. Once you get to the reservation confirmation page, you will be able to note the discount applied to your reservation. All cars that fit the qualifiers above will be free on November 8 between 6pm – 10pm.

My reservation is showing the original full price when I search in the Zipcar app. Will it still be free?
Yes. Reservations in the Zipcar app will show full price when searching and as $0.00 upon checkout. This applies to all vehicles that fit the qualifiers above on November 8 between 6pm – 10pm.

I don’t need to vote. Can I still take a free Zipcar?
We’ve made select Zipcars free to our members in an effort to make transportation on Election Day as easy as possible. Our intention is that these cars be available to people who are zipping to the polls or celebrating Election Day with their community. For this reason, we ask our members to be considerate of this as we’d like to make as many free Zipcars as possible available to those who need transportation for the election.
