How to access Zipcar

Kingston Council have set up a Zipcar account to enable employees to use the cars and vans whenever needed for work purposes. Reservations can be made for as little as 1 hour to as long as 1 week- however long you need.

Your nearest Zipcar is in the Guildhall car park, ensuring the vehicles couldn’t be closer! Zipcar also have vehicles at further locations nearby, including Ashdown Road, Grove Crescent and Winery Lane.

What are the advantages of the service?

  • Use a vehicle within seconds- nearest ones < 100 meters away
  • Save time and hassle- no need to fill in expense forms; simply book, unlock and drive; Zipcar team available 24/7, 365 days of the year to answer any queries
  • Eliminate cost and time spent finding a parking space- the Zipcar has its own bay within your car park
  • Eliminate time spent in rush hour traffic jams- leave your car at home and cycle or take the train to work, whilst still having access to a vehicle when needed during the day.
