Horrible! Horrible service!!

Never in my life have I seen a company so disinterested in there customers. I spent more than 10 Hs on the phone trying to get my zipcard shipped to the correct address, not only did they not ship it to the correct address but also on 8 different occasions told me they had te sent it and only did so once!! I kept calling and they would keep telling me they would ship it again only to find out on my next call that the card was never sent. I paid my subscription in advance and after 4 months of trying again and again I decided to cancel the account, but it turns out I can’t get my money back. Total ripoff!!! Be careful think it twice there is many people that have been overcharged or had trouble using this poorly offered service. Everyone I know that signed up could never get their money back they offer you credit that you rarely get to use because it expires I had in my account over 100, 10 or so for every call I did. I would not recommended this at all. I couldn’t even get my zipcard to start using the service, I don't even want to imagine the sort of trouble I would have if I began using it. Save yourself many hours and headaches. Good idea poorly executed.

Stranded with Courtesy

Interesting experience today - the car I was using wouldn’t start in an under ground garage at local mall because there wasn’t a satellite connection.
Received suggestions like get someone to help you push it closer to entrance/exit to make connectivity (I’m a small woman - in NY, in Brooklyn, really,?) also, if you pay for help get a receipt...huh? Gee sir thank u for going out of your way, can I give you a few dollars and oh btw I’ll need a receipt even though it’s not my car and I’ve been waiting for over an hour for a call on a tow truck - smh/really deep sigh.
The best offer - we’ll credit you and extend your time. Hmmm, credit (not refund) for a car I’m not able to use, extend my time while i stay with unusable vehicle waiting for a tow truck that never came?
This was suppose to be a quick dash to the supermarket and Home Depot..2 hours maybe 2.5, not shopping, picking up specific items - in and out, waiting on line would be most of time.
And yet everyone at Zip was friendly courteous and unconcerned about me being stranded/inconvenienced if ya know what I mean. Anyway, I finally got vehicle started - and out of the garage with a $5.00 parking charge (usually cost $2-3) not that big a deal/difference just annoying. Guess it’s time to consider getting a vehicle kinda miss having my own.

Please change this

I would love to give this app 5 stars i enjoy my ride whenever i use. However, this parking garage just makes it a headache. Its a garage thats blocks off reception so now ur mobile key is as useful as a brick. Meaning if ur not using it to break the windows ur not getting in. This is the second time ive had to sit on hold outside the car for 30 minutes or more to get someone. This last time i waited 40 minutes on hold just for them to drop my call or hang up 5 seconds into him answering. He asked for my name and that was it. Now im on hold again sitting outside the car currently waiting to get in

Do not get this app. ii never hot that firat problem resolved so ii ended up canceling my account. About a month ago ii saw a random charge for tolls of about 50 bucks despite the fact that it had been months sense my last rental. I figured it was a delayed charge and let it go. Same thing happened this month. Then im getting emails about owing a balance even tho my last ride was paid in full in the beginning of august. It will keep ripping from whatever account it’s connected to. Im trying to get rid of this app for good and cant

Developer Response ,

I'm so sorry to hear this! We are currently in the process of rolling out bluetooth to all of the cars so that they can be unlocked even when there is no reception. I can understand how that's no consolation for your bad experiences to date though! If you'd like us to take another look at this erroneous charges, please reach out to app-support@zipcar.com using your Zipcar account email so that we can get in touch.
