Some Things To Know
- Your phone and the Zipcar must have cellular reception and be within close proximity of the car for the lock and unlock options to appear in the mobile app.
- If you are booking a trip without your Zipcard, make sure to only book cars and trips where your cell phone will be in range until your Zipcard arrives.
- Once you receive your Zipcard, keep it with you on all trips just in case you’re in a low signal area or your phone runs out of battery.
