One-Way Reservations


A one-way reservation blends convenience of one-way trips with the reliability of parking in a reserved Zipcar location. These are the most flexible Zipcars yet, and can also be used as "round trip" vehicles, allowing members to select the original location as the drop off location if desired. 

To learn more:


Booking Your Reservation

You can book a one-way trip up to 30 minutes in advance. These more flexible Zipcars are intended for spontaneous, last-minute trips. Since these cars are constantly moving around the city, they can't be tied down in one place for too long, so we are unable to allow booking more than 30 minutes in advance.

Extending Your Trip

You'll always be able to extend a one-way trip since no one has the car after you. However, late fees still apply so make sure to extend if you want to keep the car longer. (Late fees start at $50.)

Dropping Off Your Zipcar

When you book a one-way trip, you'll select your drop-off location at the time of booking. However, you can change that location anytime during your reservation using the mobile app. You will need to return the Zipcar to a designated Zipcar spot.
