Ratings and Reviews
Please update to allow SEPARATE pickups/dropoffs
So far so good! Still in my first month, but I’ve reserved cars probably 5ish times both weekdays and weekends. It’s obvious the actual (advertised as ‘estimate’) prices are based on demand, but I get the feeling it’s pretty heavily relying on generalizations rather than actual data based demand. I don't use public transportation, but for those who do I think this is a no brainer. Getting to the car otherwise factoring in the cost of time (walking for example) and for me, taking a Lyft. I am a single mom with a 7 month old baby who travels with me using Zipcar since I value both our lives and prefer the responsibility of getting us around Los Angeles safely rather than trusting strangers (public transit or Lyft drivers). PS I’ve had more positive experiences with dog friendly drivers than baby friendly 🤔 Anyway unless they update their features to allow separate pick-up and drop-off parking spots, I don’t plan on remaining a member due to the carseat switches which I can avoid by using traditional rentals. Otherwise I’ve had excellent experiences, great cars, clean, fast customer service.. it’s really so close to perfect!! 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼
A Great Option Even If You Own A Car
I’ve been a Zipcar member since January 2008. You can rent cars located in or near your neighborhood by the hour. You reserve cars at the website by day, date, and time, based on availability. I’ve made reservations just minutes in advance, and currently also have reservations as far ahead as several months. The only limit is if and when someone else has booked the car you want, but you usually have alternative cars available nearby. Even if you own a car, it makes sense to be a member and have a Zipcard in your wallet, for when your car is in the shop or you’re traveling to other cities and want the convenience of a car when you get there. The billing is similar to Lyft or Uber, and the app works as well as the website and is very intuitive and instantaneous. It’s a great option, one I use at least a couple times a week, and I haven’t owned a car since 1992.
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.
