Zipcar is the greatest thing you didn’t know you needed!


Zipcar is a car-sharing service where you can “check out” vehicles, much like you would a book from the library, for any length of time, from any Zipcar location, simply by using your mobile device or computer. Search for a variety of car options, whether you need an SUV to transport furniture home from Ikea or a small vehicle to run out and pick up lunch for co-workers, Zipcar has a vehicle that is just right for you! And what is even better, you can find a few right here on Chapman’s campus!

Zipcar is unique compared to traditional car rental companies given that the only requirements are being 18+ and having a driver’s license from any country. You can book cars by the hour, or by the day at an amazing low rate. The best part is that gas, 180 miles per day of driving, and insurance is completely covered at no extra cost! Reserve a car anywhere days in advance or only mere minutes before you want to take a trip and be on your way. Each car has its own reserved parking spot so you don’t even have to worry about finding parking.

This service does require a yearly membership fee, but the discounted rate offered to Chapman University faculty and staff is very affordable at $25 a year and as an added bonus, you will receive $50 of free driving credit! That is a lot of driving. Just use the promo code Fluent15 at, but hurry because this offer won’t last forever. The people over at Zipcar are incredibly helpful and eager to answer any questions you may have. Signing up is a simple process that only takes a few minutes of your time so do not delay and join Zipcar today!
