What is Zipcar for business?

How much does Zipcar for Business cost?

Zipcar for Business is free for your first year, then £99 a year after that. Zipcar for Business members always pay our cheapest prices – at up to 30% off standard driving rates. Take a Flex by the minute, or book a Roundtrip car or van by the hour or the day. Fuel, insurance, maintenance, and 60 miles per day are all included in membership.

How soon can I drive with Zipcar?

First, you’ll need to sign up online. Once approved, you can book right away via the Zipcar app, available on iOS and Android. You’ll also get a Zipcard in the post once you’re a member – handy in case your phone runs out of battery or has no signal.

 

What's the difference between Zipcar Flex and Roundtrip?

Flex is our one-way service. Just look for the blue pin in the app, reserve and drive then just drop in our Zipzone across London.  Perfect for spontaneous one-way trips around the city or getting to that important meeting.  With Roundtrip, pick your car up from a dedicated bay – you’ll find them all over London. Use the app to find any green pin near you, book and drive by the hour or day. Park in the same spot you picked your Zipcar up from.

What types of vehicles can I use?

When making a booking, drivers can pick from a large selection of vehicles to fit your business needs, from city runarounds to vans - even unbranded luxury vehicles. We’ve got you covered.

 

Is fuel included?

It sure is. Just use the fuel card on the side of the dashboard when you need to fill up. Every car should have at least ¼ tank to start with (please bring yours back that way, too.) Our e-Golfs are charged overnight, so they’re good to go whenever you are.

How many miles are included?

60 miles each day. Extra miles cost from £0.25 per mile. We also cover your Congestion Charge, and all our vehicles are ULEZ compliant – so everything’s taken care of. Learn more.

 

How does Zipcar insurance coverage work?

All Zipcar members in good standing are covered by third party motor liability. Members are responsible for a £750 damage fee per incident, which can be reduced or eliminated with an optional damage fee waiver. Learn more.
