Car and Van Hire with No Deposit Required

A security deposit is the amount of money held at your credit or debit card when you rent a car. Some consumers may not want to pay a deposit when renting for many reasons. Zipcar’s car sharing service offers you to benefit from 24/7 car hire with no deposit from either Roundtrip or Flex cars.



How Much is a Typical Deposit?

How Much is a Typical Deposit?

A typical deposit can range from £200 to £300 plus the estimated cost of your rental. The cost depends on the city you are in, the car you are renting and how old you are. We understand this might create an unfavourable and unaffordable experience for you. That is why, at Zipcar, we offer car hire with no deposit. Enjoy the flexibility to book, pay and unlock a car, all via our easy-to-use app.

What is a Car Hire Deposit?

A car hire deposit is normally asked by rental companies to ensure that they do not lose any money if there are any problems during your rental period. For example, returning the car late, dirty or with any damages will result in the company holding some or all your money.
