Supermarket trip

"I took a Zipcar trip to the supermarket, it was convenient because the car was parked right outside my house. I chose Zipcar because my friends told me how fantastic the service is!"

Transporting my urban jungle

"My favourite trip I took with Zipcar was from Colombia Road Flower Market. Zipcar was perfect for me - I got up early on a Sunday, took some cash and went plant shopping. I got a little over-excited and bought a massive selection of large and small plants. With heaving bags full of plants and a large plant in each hand, I thought I needed a Zipcar to rescue me. I found one just around the corner and loaded it up with all my bargain finds. The car ended up looking like a greenhouse on wheels and I got some funny looks at the traffic lights!"

Philip, Southwalk

"My first Zipcar trip was when I took a van to go and collect a bicycle. It worked out very cheap! I chose Zipcar because the cars are great value, good quality, and well maintained."

"We went to a lovely little garden centre just after they opened after lockdown. It was great to get out of the local area safely for the first time in months."

"The first Zipcar trip I took was a pay per minute Flex car. I drove it to Lidl to stock up the cupboards when we first moved into our new flat."

"I always use Zipcar for my shopping! I like to visit different shops and having a car means I can go to all the shops I wanted, which are in different areas. Zipcar cars are good quality too!"
