While most applicants are approved in just a few minutes and can book and drive a Zipcar instantly, there are few exceptions where members must first wait to receive their Zipcard before they can begin driving:
- Members reopening an existing account
- Members joining through a business plan
- Members joining in Canada
If any of the above apply to you, you will need to receive and activate your Zipcard before you can book and drive a Zipcar. Your Zipcard will be mailed to the address you entered on your application and should arrive within 5-7 business days.
