Car sharing in Barnet

Once you’ve decided to use Zipcar, it’s easy to get to one of our vehicles in Barnet. If you head to Finchley Central station, you’ll find three Zipcars within walking distance, while in the west side of the borough you can find three near Colindale station. The first step is logging onto the Zipcar app or website, finding the car you want and where it is, and then booking it out. Then it’s just a matter of showing up and unlocking the vehicle with your membership card or mobile app. To make this even easier, we include 60 miles of travel, congestion charges and insurance costs in the price.

Where to rent a Zipcar in Barnet

Aside from the great choices in restaurants and shops in Barnet, you can also drive up to the RAF Museum there. You can see some of the famous planes from aviation history, including a set of planes from the Battle of Britain. If golf is more your thing there are two courses; the South Herts Golf Course and the Metro Golf Centre. If you prefer your green spaces without balls and clubs, there’s Monken Hadley Common in the north of the borough and Edgwarebury and Watling Park in the west. All are perfect for day’s wander or a relaxed picnic. Of course a Zipcar is a great way to escape the city for the day. So why not head north to Welwyn Garden City.
