Zipcar

Zipcar at W&MThe new alternative in transportation

The Zipcar program offers a convenient, cost effective and environmentally friendly option to owning a car on campus. Zipcar supports our efforts to reduce congestion, pollution and frustration.

The ultimate in convenience

Our Zipcars are conveniently located in high-demand areas and are self-service. They can easily be reserved online and accessed at any time. Zipcar even offers a fun iPhone app that will allow you to make reservations, update changes, and even honk the horn to locate your Zipcar and unlock its doors. Three vehicles are currently available: a Honda Insight "Hybrid" and Ford Focus on Wake Drive, and a Ford Focus in the OD Lot off of James Blair Dr.

The power of freedom and flexibility

Zipcars give students who don't have access to a car the freedom and flexibility to participate in off-campus activities such as internships and job interviews. At the same time, students and faculty members alike can be proud that they are reducing their environmental impact by lowering their carbon footprint and using alternative transportation methods.

Students, faculty, and staff: join for only $25 and get $35 free driving! (you save $10 in the 1st year, thanks to Ford!)

Get 24/7 access to Zipcars parked right on campus! Simply reserve online, let yourself in with your Zipcard and drive. Our low hourly and daily rates always include gas and insurance. You only need to be 18+ to join. Members age 18-20 can use a dedicated group of Zipcars that live on the W&M campus. Members age 21+ also have access to thousands of Zipcars all around the world.

How does the Zipcar insurance policy work?

For Zipcar members 21 years of age or older, insurance coverage consists of a combined single limit of $300,000 per accident, meaning that all third party bodily injuries, or property damage costs relating to the accident are covered in the aggregate up to $300,000.

For drivers under 21, Zipcar provides coverage up to state-mandated levels, for Virginia that would be 25/50/20. The Zipcar vehicles are covered under a comprehensive vehicle collision policy. Members in this category may obtain additional coverage under personal insurance policies, or accident coverage provisions offered by your credti card company.

For both third party and Zipcar vehicle damage claims, the member may be responsible for a damage fee of up to $750 if they're involved in an incident during their reservation. Members age 21+, who have had no accidents in the last 12 months, have the option to purchase a damage fee waiver to reduce that amount or eliminate it altogether.

 If you have any questions or concerns about the insurance coverage Zipcar provides and whether it works for your personal situation, we encourage you to consult with a licensed agent and put them in touch with us if needed. Insurance can be tricky and we want you to be informed. You can reach us at insurance@zipcar.com.
