How Flex works
Zipcar Flex is our one-way option, like a self-drive taxi. Ideal when you need to pick up a car in one destination and drop it off in another. Once you’ve joined, hitting the road is simple. Reserve your one-way Flex trip in our app
Find and reserve
Find your nearest Flex car in the app – just look for the blue pins (there’s thousands of them). You reserve it and we’ll hold it for 15 minutes.
Unlock and drive
Unlock the car with the Zipcar app (you'll find the keys in the glove box). Fuel, insurance and the Congestion Charge are all taken care of.
When you’re done drop your Flex car off in our Zipzone. The Zone covers 13 boroughs in London and Heathrow T5. It’s the largest in the world.
Getting to and from T5 is easier with Flex.
