What does it cost to join Zipcar?

How much is a Zipcar membership? I want to join, but don't want to have to pay a recurring cost.

“If you don’t want to pay a recurring fee, Zipcar does offer an annual membership for $70. To join Zipcar, you’ll need to pay a one time $25 application fee, along with:
  • A picture of your driver’s license
  • A picture of yourself
  • An online account
Once approved, the only additional fees you pay are when you rent a car. These fees are typically hourly or daily and vary depending on the type car you rent.
The benefits that come with a Zipcar membership are:
  • Liability coverage for all trips
  • Free gas
  • Maintenance and roadside assistance
  • 180 miles per day included
Before deciding to join Zipcar, you can look at the cost of membership along with the cost to rent a vehicle. By purchasing a yearly membership, you save $14 versus paying a recurring monthly fee.
If you decide to move forward, also consider car insurance coverage. While Zipcar offers insurance, you may want to add coverage to ensure you’re properly protected. You can do this through Zipcar, a personal auto policy, or a non-owners policy.
If you’d like help with your insurance, go to Jerry. The free Jerry app is the easiest and most effective way to find a car insurance policy that is customized for you.”
