Roundtrip and Flex

There are two ways to travel with Zipcar. Roundtrip is perfect for when you’re looking for a car or van for a couple of hours, a day or more.  Flex is there for one-way travel across London or to the airport. Perfect for commuting, heading to a friend’s place or getting your shopping home. What’s more, our Flex fleet has over 1000 electric vehicles.
