Zip Cars

Wheels with no strings attached

Zipcar is a membership-based car-sharing service at Dartmouth College that allows students 18 and older, faculty and staff the ability reserve a car by the hour or day. There are three cars that are parked right on campus in convenient locations; one nearby the Blunt Alumni Center, one in front of McKenzie Hall, and the other down by Tuck/Thayer School.  To use Zipcars, simply register as a member, reserve a car online or by phone, use your Zipcard to enter the car, and drive away. When you're done, return the car to the same location where you picked it up.
For insurance reasons, drivers under the age of 21 must download and fill out the Insurance Acknowledgement Form upon completing Zipcar's online application. The Insurance Acknowledgement Form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian and submitted to or faxed to 603.646.1205 before membership approval.

As a member you get:

  • Access to Zipcars 24/7.
  • Discounted hourly rates for faculty, staff and students age 18 and older:
    • Rates start at just $8.50/hour or $69/day.
  • Gas, insurance and maintenance are included for free!
  • Join for only $25 a year, and receive $35 in driving credit your first month.
