Hourly, Daily and Overnight Rates

Hourly and Daily Rates

The hourly rate is the base cost when reserving a Zipcar and the daily rate is the maximum reservation cost for a 24-hour period. Select the time you want to pick up and drop off the Zipcar and we’ll give you the best deal depending on how long you reserve.  

Keep in mind that the daily rate doesn’t necessarily mean you have the vehicle for a full day; you’ll still need to return your Zipcar by the end of your reservation time.

Hourly-Only Zipcars

We have some cars that can only be reserved by the hour. When the daily rate appears as "N/A" on the reservation page, there isn’t a day rate available.

Overnight Rate

Many cities have a promotional “Overnight Rate” for reservations between 6pm and 8:30am. Please note that if you scan into your Zipcar before 6pm or extend your reservation beyond 8:30am the Overnight Rate will no longer apply.
