You can find our VW Transporter vans to rent anywhere that Zipcars are available in LondonBristolOxford and Cambridge. Here is some technical knowledge you might need before you rent a van:

  • The Gross Vehicle Weight of our VW Transporters is 2.8 tonnes.
  • The dimensions of the full vehicle are 489cm (L) x 224.2cm (W) x 196.9cm (H).
  • The approximate loading dimensions of the VW Transporter are 235cm (L) x 148cm (W) x 130cm (H).

As the weight of the vehicle is over 2 tonnes, it is restricted from travelling through some areas, most notably the Rotherhithe Tunnel in London, and failure to obey any restrictions will result in a Penalty Charge Notice. Also, it's a member’s responsibility to always obey the Highway Code when driving any of our vehicles.
