Zipcar Parking Rules

 

The rule ares simple, during your reservation you need to ensure you pay for parking as if it were your own vehicle. If you're ending your trip you will need to return your Roundtrip vehicle to the designated bay you picked it up from or for Flex you need to ensure you're parked in an approved bay in line with London borough you end your trip in. 

 

Parking during your reservation

During your reservation, you can park the vehicle as if it were your own. Ensure that wherever you are, you are parked legally and take the keys with you to lock and unlock.  

 

 

 

Parking a Roundtrip Vehicle

Roundtrip vehicles need to be returned to their designated Car Club Bay, where you started the journey, at the end of your reservation. Information detailing the location of the bay can be found in your reservation confirmation email. If there are any changes to the bay, these will be detailed in the email.

If the designated Car Club Bay is taken or blocked, please call us as soon as you can on 0333 240 9000 so we can guide you to park in a safe bay. Blocked bays are out of Zipcar’s control, however, we always do our best to assist and guide our members should this circumstance arise.

You will not be able to park your own personal vehicle in the Car Club Bay during your reservation.
