ZipCar is a car-sharing service where you rent a car and drive yourself. Members of the service can rent cars by the hour or day, accessing the vehicles using a special card (called a “Zipcard”) or the company’s mobile app. Whether you need to visit a friend out of town or do a few hours of shopping in your own city, it’s a great short-term car rental option for anyone who doesn’t own a vehicle.
You pay a daily or hourly rental fee, drive where you need to go and return the vehicle when you’re done. It’s as simple as that.
