50% off journeys for NHS teams

We’ve been helping the NHS’s teams get to and around at work for years, but during these challenging times, we wanted to do more. That’s why we’ve been working with the NHS trusts to give all NHS staff up to 50% off journeys with Zipcar.

We’re stronger together.

Thank you, NHS.

How the discount works: 

•    For one-way Zipcar Flex journeys, where you can pick up a car and drop it off anywhere in our Zipzone, (most of London!), you will receive 50% off bookings done by the minute or hour, and 30% off bookings done by the day. Flex cars are from 29p/minute and £12/hour, which means you would pay 14.5p/minute and £6/hour. 

•    For Zipcar Roundtrip journeys, where you pick up a car or van from its dedicated bay and drop it back at the same spot, you will receive 40% off bookings done by the hour, and 30% off bookings done by the day. The cost of a journey depends on the model of car you drive, take a look at the ‘more detailed pricing’ link on our pricing page for full information. 

For more information on our response to COVID-19 please see our blogpost here.


Ts and cs: Up to 50% off Zipcar journeys is valid for NHS employees and social care workers only, until 30th June 2020. Zipcar may extend the discount period, and are following updates on Coronavirus (COVID-19) closely. 


NHS Volunteers

We are pleased to hear of the UK government’s call for 250,000 volunteers to help the NHS to deliver help to those most risk from the virus to stay well, and the overwhelming response they had to this. We're looking into ways we can support those volunteering - please keep an eye on our social media for any updates.
