How long can I book a car for?

You can reserve a Zipcar for as little as one minute, or as much as 7 days at a time. Whether it's a quick shopping trip or an extra long escape from the city, there is a Zipcar for you! Our Roundtrip vehicles can be booked for a minimum of one hour. If you require an extension for your reservation a minimum of 30 minutes can be added. Flex reservations can be booked for a minimum of 60 seconds and are charged by the minute. 

If you'd like to keep a car for more than 7 days, you can email us at and we'll try to help you out. Please understand that due to availability, location and other factors, we cannot guarantee reservations longer than 7 days.
