How long does it take to become a member?

While we are eager to get you out and zipping around, first we'll need to review your application and documents. 

Once you're approved (or if we need further information) we'll reach out to you via email (this may take up to 48 hours).

We'll then pop a Zipcard in the post to your registered billing address, which usually takes about 7-10 working days for it to arrive. You can still use the service without the Zipcard by downloading our handy app.

Business Accounts and Additional Drivers

Please note that if you are joining an existing business account, the application process may take just a little longer since you will need to be approved by the account admin first (usually the person who set up the account).
