How do I extend my trip?

If you need to extend your trip you can do so on our iPhone® or Android™ mobile apps or via text alerts.

Mobile App

  • Open the Zipcar mobile app
  • View Current Trip and then select Extend to extend
  • Click Update Trip to verify your extension is complete

Text Alerts

  • Sign up for text alerts here
  • A text will be sent to you 30 minutes before your trip ends to let you know the vehicle is available for extension
  • Respond with a text to extend your trip


If you are unable to extend your trip, please return on time as someone may have the car booked after you.
