Despite the initial negative experience (where the car wud not come on, lock or unlock using the app), the support staff were truly phenomenal. They were patient and had plenty of time to talk me through the process. The problem was solved remotely (after almost 90 minutes), I drove back to the Pick-up point and I was given a replacement car. Without being prompted, the support person extended my time at no extra cost. In all, I was quite happy with ZipCar!

Card doesn't work anymore. Asks to take 6 photos of the car before unlocking it first. 6 from all sides! In a tight space of a New York City garage where the staff usually wants me out ASAP. Now if I back out of the picture taking screen, the app asks if I want to skip taking pictures, but unfortunately, when I choose to skip, it doesn't let me. Ending my session - same thing with the photos. Great waste of my time. Also can't imagine if my phone breaks or loses charge during the trip.

Hi Anton, we are sorry about the inconvenience. The reason we ask users to take photos before and after a reservation is to ensure that you won't be held responsible for damages or mess that occurred outside of your trip window. We hope you found this information useful.

Love the service, but the app is super buggy. When starting my rides, it often does not offer me a check-in prompt to evaluate condition of car. If it does, it will randomly delete all of the photos I've taken midway through the check-in. At the end of my drive, the app will usually not allow me to end the ride because the "ignition is on" despite the car being totally off. It's now become routine to call support and have them remotely end my trip (again, without opportunity to take photos).
