What You'll Get
For $35, today's Groupon gets you a one-year Zipcar membership and a $50 driving credit (a $125 total value). Urbanites who ordinarily hoof it, use public transit, or ride on the backs of men bred for transportation purposes can't resist the convenience of wheels-at-will without the hassles of car ownership.
Reserve an SUV, a truck for heavy hauling, a hybrid for whale saving, or a coupe for couping; there are tons of models you can choose to drive. View vehicle availability online, and then reserve the car; Zipcars live in dozens of locations all over the city. The reservation includes driver's insurance and a gas card to fill up the tank. Reservations are billable by the hour or by the day, starting at $8 per hour and $77–$115 per day, and reservations include 180 free miles per day. This Groupon covers the $25 membership sign-up fee in addition to your year’s membership (a $50 value) and a $50 driving credit. Click here to see complete rate info.
Signing up is easy; your Groupon will include simple instructions for redeeming on Zipcar's website. Anyone who doesn't meet Zipcar safe-driver requirements will not be eligible for membership but will receive a complete refund in one to two weeks. You must activate your Groupon within the next month—please note that your membership will automatically renew at the end of your year if you do not cancel it.
This Groupon is for new Zipcar clients only. The $50 credit expires in three months.
- I love that gas and insurance are included in the rental. Having sold my car…Zipcar is the perfect answer to my car needs. – Philine v., Yelp
- If you live in the city it's much better than owning your own car. Nice selection of vehicles as well. – JMQ, Citysearch
- I never want to have to own a car, but occasionally there are times when I need one. Zipcar makes sure that I can easily get my hands on one when I need to run a local errand or take a short road trip, because their cars are located all around the City. – Heather H., Yelp
