App Reviews

  • Lousy Service

    By Go Getter Girl
    2 stars because if you barely need a car for 1-2 hours, less than once a week, then MAYBE it’s fine, but don’t count on this service to be reliable or worth your money. ALWAYS a problem with my reservation! Would be nice to have ONE reservation go smoothly & I don’t have to call and deal with their AWFUL customer service. Once or twice they’ve been nice and helpful, but 8/10 rude customer service (poor attitude, or they’ll hang up on you). Cars smell bad, full of trash, aren’t where they should be when I’m ready to pick up, one time I went to access my reserved car & the alarm started going off....another time I was driving and the car started having some steering problems that you really don’t want to have while going 60mph in heavy traffic! By the time I was able to safely pull over, the check engine light came on. ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS and not once has Zipcar made an effort to make it right. Tons of additional fees on top of the steep hourly rate and monthly membership dues. No customer appreciation in terms of discount days or coupons/sales. You will have to fight with their RUDE customer service every step of the way just so they won’t overcharge you or expect you to pay full price for a car with loads of problems. Yikes!!

    I’ve only been a member with you guys for less than a month and have spent roughly $1200 renting your vehicles! I want to express how much i regret not using a different service than Zipcar! Every time I’ve been in one they have been extremely dirty with debris, smoke odor, and trash ! Not to mention a couple of them have even had service due lights on! One being “transmission error”? You need to come up with some way or incentive to make other Zipcar users return the vehicles clean! I took my little spare time and money that I have YET AGAIN as I have done with each of your cars I’ve rented and made sure to clean up debris, wipe it down with armor all, vacuum them, and cleaned the windows but I’m not going to continue to do so if it’s not enforced or regulated to others! Especially with the HORRIBLE customer service I receive EVERY time I have to call your company. The agents are rude and don’t care nor listen to our comments! I EVEN HAD TO USE PERSONAL MONEY TO GAS UP because the gas card was not in the car!Considering how ungodly expensive your service is to rent a car for a day you’d think that Zipcar would be on top of issues like these but that’s unfortunately not the case. To say the least I am VERY disappointed and honestly don’t know if I will even continue to use this service!
  • Worst Customer Service ON THE WEB

    By jasdogJamesS
    I have driven with Zipcar for years at this point. Both in Ann Arbor, MI and in Tallahassee, FL were my experiences just as terrible. When calling customer service, they will only restate policies to you instead of actually solving your issues. In particular, Caesar, the head of customer service, has no one above him to help you solve your issue. So, he simply just keeps repeating himself to you. His inferiors, such as Xavier, barely understand how the company works, misread information to you, and will try to overcharge you. Additionally, their gas cards almost NEVER work or get stolen. You must then pay for the gas and Zipcar will "reimburse" you. Except, they might not. And even so, they'll charge you if you return the car with low gas, EVEN IF YOU REPORT THE CARD MISSING DAYS PRIOR and THEYVE STILL NOT REPLACED IT! I highly recommend using another app. The customer accusatory tone of the "face" of this companies customer service is demeaning and is only there for the company to try to charge you more money. I hope Zipcar improves its customer service and gas card issues. If not, I will be leaving the company soon. It's not worth your peace of mind, time, money, patience, or respect (as they certainly won't respect you). Shame. :/
  • This company does not care about you

    By ilssim
    Have had multiple issues with rentals - car not starting, dirty cars, not parked where they’re supposed to be, then not being able to find the car where I parked it despite having parked it exactly where I found it, double-charges to my debit card.....They literally have no way to contact customer service online. The links in their emails to customer service are all broken. The only email address online has a message warning that if your email isn’t about applications it won’t be reviewed. They send out email surveys asking how your ride was but they aren’t actually interested in knowing about or fixing customers’ problems. I called customer service multiple times and all they were able to do is tell me they’d have someone email or call me back. No one ever did. I ended up having to dispute an erroneous charge with my bank. Still no reply despite multiple bad reviews on their surveys that apparently fall into a black hole once completed. I hope a customer service oriented car rental company buys them out and fixes this company because unfortunately, Zipcar owns the market for this type of service where I live.
  • So Far So Good

    By ArkangelLyric
    All is working well after they canceled my account for months then tried to charge me for a incident I wasn’t even in.....but after months they reopened my account refunded me my money in my acc that I was billed and apologized for the mistake due to timing of the for that I am very grateful......I do however live in the region where ONE-WAY is a thing.....but when I go to use that part of the service it’s never there.....or there is no option to use that service.....before I could switch between ONE-WAY & ROUND TRIP...this was before recent it’s just a little confusing .....but all in all I give it 5stars cuz I ran into a problem and they fixed it and didn’t cost me anything so thanks for that ZIP for now I’ll continue to use your services.....FOR NOW🤦🏾‍♂️💁🏾‍♂️
  • Customer Service Issue

    By NerdLoyaltyD
    They are very unhelpful. After they switched my car because the first car had warning lights on they refunded and charged me more for the same car that was at the same location as the previous car after reassurance the price wouldn’t be different. I paid the balance then had an issue with them saying they haven’t received the payment after it’s cleared and posted to my bank account. The representative told me there was nothing he could do no assistance on how to get this settled or anything. I call back and finally get a answer on what to do but it’s now been 2 weeks of no update and still my account is on hold. I think as payments are made there should be confirmations sent out to emails because this is ridiculous. And hire people who actually want to give customer service, this car service is too expensive for crappy customer service.
  • App is so bad it makes me want to take the bus.

    By Cambridge Kit Cat
    This app is so bad it has made me HATE using ZipCar. I’m embarrassed I used to call myself a “Zipster.” For shame! Here’s the thing. Once upon a time for a school assignment I used the ZipCar app as an example of excellent UX design. Now it couldn’t be worse. It feels like they updated it for the sake of doing an update. Not for the sake of making booking a car any easier! every time I open this app I am frustrated all over again. Why am I looking at a map instead of selecting a start point? Why is that step 2? And the start and end times. I have no idea how they managed to complicate that so badly. The simplest concept in the world. A giant map to look at, but on the page to select location... my home address isn’t even in the drop-down list! How is it that I’m logged in, you know who I am, the blue dot on the map says you know where I am, in my very house, but you can’t even give me my home as a suggestion, never mind default. I’ve been a customer for 13 years. This is so disappointing.
  • New App is almost worst than their customer service!!

    By Dlicious4
    The new app is awful! I can't save addresses and it doesn't auto zoom in my location and drive options once an address IS typed! Can't change payment options which is MOST IMPORTANT! How do you not give your users that simple freedom to choose how they pay?? You basically can't do anything except book a car. And then when you try to call for help - hah! Might as well call your uncle who's on that business trip in Borneo. He'll be more helpful than the reps at Zipcar. Once I had an extremely faulty transmission and had to follow up myself for three weeks to get any kind of acknowledgement, AND to get them to listen and take the car off the road or fix it! This time, I've called twice to have wiper fluid put in the SUV that I always rent....still nothing! And winter is here so when it snows and there's no fluid? Thanks for looking out Zipcar. I'm about to start using the newer car sharing services that have joined the arena. Things can only go up from here.
  • Terrible - canceling after 15yrs

    By Mmmbbb.
    Zipcar member for 15yrs...have not been able to use the app for over a month...keeps asking me to verify my birthday, but does not accept what I believe to be my birthday...called Zipcar...said they fixed’s not. Then they suspend my account due to too many logins - so they are charging me an annual fee to use the service but denying me use of the service...until they can figure it out, which has taken over a month. Brilliant business plan. Customer service completely unhelpful (block and tackle for the company - unable to elevate concerns). Also, why always show me a map of the entire U.S. when I just need a car near my home or within a few blocks of where I am? Definitely several steps back in user friendliness. Too many alternatives - considering leaving Zipcar after so long...thanks, Avis.
  • Worst customer service. No sense of customer retention

    By cmrobins45
    I have never felt more compelled to leave a bad review in my life. Do yourself a favor and get maven. This is the worst car sharing app and they have no regard for their customers. They don’t check the cars. Before people rent them which cause for me to get a blown out tire on the freeway due to their negligence. Then when I called customer service for roadside assistance they said I may have to pay for it and didn’t care that I was stuck on the side of the freeway in an unsafe place and left me on hold for 20 mins and sent for assistance to come two hours later. Then when I asked them to extend my reservation for the late fee I had two representatives assure me that it was extended then hour later I get slapped with a $50 late charge and then have them tell me it’ll take 3-5 days to come back to me. There was no major apologies no desire to do something to keep me a customer so I just cancelled. Because this company is the scum of this earth.
