Do I need a Zipcard to drive a Zipcar?

In most cases, no! However, there are some cars which do currently require a Zipcard to begin the trip (often those in underground garages or with low cellular coverage).

Having a Zipcard is still a good backup option, and we encourage you keep yours handy in case you have difficulty unlocking your Zipcar from the iPhone® or Android™ app or drive to an area with low-to-no cellular coverage.
