I don't own a car, so I bought this Groupon to try out Zipcar during my big move. I ended up keeping the membership for a few years after it ran out, and using it for things like buying new furniture, hauling garden supplies, and making big grocery runs. It's nice to have the option to grab a car if I need it! The only thing that bums me out is that I have to return the car to the same lot I rented it from, so it's not practical for one-way or overnight trips.

Great for big cities (SF/NYC) where parking is too expensive and where you have decent public transportation.

What You'll Get

_Jump to: Details Reviews_

There are so many reasons not to own a car:

  • Insurance
  • Maintenance costs
  • Parking tickets
  • Back pain from hydraulic lifts
  • The irresistible but dangerous urge to sleep beneath the hood on the warm engine
  • You have to leave the car in order to ride a pony

While riding a pony solves some of these problems, there’s still a lot you can’t do:

  • Carry more than one bag of groceries
  • Pick up your Craiglist waterbed
  • Run errands in no-pony zones

You need a car, but only every once in a while; join Zipcar, where each car is fully equipped with zippers and where you save 72% with today’s Groupon.


Zipcar is perfect for San Franciscans who wish to avoid the costs of car ownership but still need a car on occasion. For only $35, today’s Groupon gets you a one-year Zipcar membership, plus a $50 driving credit. That’s 72% off the normal $125 value.

Zipcar keeps a fleet of vehicles at a ton of locations that are at your beckoning when, where, and for however long you need them. No matter where you are in the city, you’re likely close to a Zipcar location and one of its 792 cars. Click here to see rates, starting at $8.33 per hour.

Signing up is easy, your Groupon will include simple instructions for redemption on Zipcar’s website. Please note, anyone who doesn’t meet Zipcar safe driver requirements will not be eligible for membership, but will receive a complete refund in 1-2 weeks.


Yelpers give Zipcar four stars. Here are a few reviews: > * It is affordable and you don’t have to deal with insurance OR paying for gas. And I love that they have hybrids now. – missy s. > * I totally love zipcar! I gave up my car about 8 years ago when I moved to SF and I dont really miss it but I do miss being able to go to Target and home to visit my parents in Sonoma occasionally. – Nicole C. > * I’ve been a Zipcar member for 3 years and couldn’t be happier with the selection of cars and especially the customer service - always there to help when you need it. – Aaron R.
