How much does Zipcar for Commuters cost?
You’ll be charged monthly for your Zipcar for Commuters membership plan. The cost per month varies based on your location. You’ll also be charged $.45 per mile driven ($.30 per km in Canada). Gas, insurance, maintenance, and a dedicated parking spot are all included in membership. Price it out.
Where can I park my car?
During your week-long reservation, you do not have to return the car to its dedicated Zipcar parking spot each night, but you have the option to use that spot if it’s convenient for you. You can also park in any legal parking space. On Fridays, you must return the car to its Zipcar parking spot by 7pm.
What is the difference between a Standard plan and a Plus plan?
Your membership plan determines which vehicle type you will be matched with. For Standard members, an approved vehicle may include the following: Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, or similar. For Plus members, an approved vehicle may include the following: Honda CR-V, Jeep Renegade, Ford Escape, Subaru Crosstrek, or similar.
When will I be billed?
Your monthly membership fee will be billed each month. Mileage will be billed at the end of each week. If you book additional hourly or daily Zipcar reservations on the weekends, you will be charged fees + mileage at the end of each reservation.
What is your cancellation policy?
You may cancel your Commuter membership at any time. You cannot receive a refund for the unused portion of the billing period (month); however, you will not receive a charge for the following months. We ask that you provide one week’s notice prior to the start of your next billing period. To cancel your membership, please call 1-866-4Zipcar. Please note, Zipcar may revise or discontinue the terms of this offering at any time.
