What's included in a Zipcar membership?

I want to get a Zipcar membership, but I'm not sure what's included. I know some programs do free gas and roadside assistance. What's included?

“When choosing a car-sharing service, the benefits of membership are important! If you get a Zipcar membership, it includes:
  • Gas (gas cards are available in every vehicle)
  • At least 180 miles of driving (more with certain membership plans)
  • A free, designated parking spot
  • Roadside assistance services
Zipcar also includes basic liability insurance with all its rentals that meet the state minimum car insurance requirements. There is a damage fee waiver that covers damage to the vehicle with a $1,000 deductible. They also offer additional liability and damage protection plans.
Beyond this, you can reserve a Zipcar for hourly or daily rates.
Before deciding to sign up for Zipcar, you should compare its benefits to other car-sharing services in your area. Whatever provides the benefits and cost that best meets your needs is the service you should join.
If you plan on renting or using car-sharing services frequently, consider getting non-owners insurance. Non-owners insurance extends coverage to any vehicle you drive, ensuring you’re properly protected.
