Is there a maximum or minimum booking length?


Roundtrip is our classic service. You can book a Zipcar for as little as one hour or as long as 7 days at a time. If you require a reservation extension, a minimum of 30 minutes can be added.

When booking, keep in mind that the Zipcar you booked is available for others to reserve before and after your reservation. Make sure to give yourself enough time so that you don't impact another member's trip if you get caught in traffic.


Flex is our one-way, drive, and drop service available only on the app.

Flex cars can be booked for a couple of minutes or maximum of 48 hours. Flex cars (blue pins on the map) can’t be reserved in advance but can be held for up to 15 minutes with no charge before you drive. You can then purchase additional hold time if you cannot make it to the vehicle on time.
