Car hire in Croydon
A bustling, diverse place and home to some of the best shopping in the country, Croydon - AKA “Gateway to the South”. Yes, it’s a great place to begin a trip to the South coast in Brighton for a potter on the pier or around the South Downs, perhaps across to the stunning Surrey countryside or even up into the bright lights of the big City. In fact, car sharing in Croydon gives you easy access in every direction to some of the best places to visit in Britain. Driving cars and vans by the hour or day with short term car rental in Croydon is the low cost, convenient solution. It’s a cheaper and easier alternative to traditional car hire and can help you ‘get it done’ with all kinds of everyday tasks, like shopping, visiting friends and family or hauling furniture from Ikea - but without the expense, hassle or carbon footprint of owning a car yourself.

Where to find Zipcars in Croydon
Zipcars are dotted all around central Croydon, so you're never further than a short tram, train or walk from your nearest car share hot spot. If you're in Shirley the nearest Zipcar is just a short hop to Addiscombe. From Purley, a trip up Brighton Road to the mainline stations will give you plenty of car-sharing options. A couple of stops from Coulsdon – up to Wallington or East/South Croydon – will take you to your nearest car. From Thornton Heath there are cars on the way into the centre – on Thornton Road, Crossland Road and Whitehorse Road.
