Zipcar Referral Program Bonuses and $25 New Member Credit for Zipcar Car-Sharing Service

The Zipcar referral program offers bonus credits for both parties when a current member refers a new member to the Zipcar car-sharing service.

New Zipcar members can get $25 in rental credits when you sign up through a current member’s referral link.

Plus, current Zipcar members can earn $25 in rental credits for each new member that you refer.

Zipcar is a car-sharing service that is available in many major cities, which allows members to conveniently rent cars on a short-term basis.

Zipcar Referral Program Details

Although the Zipcar Referral Program is displayed on the homepage, further information about the referral program is unavailable without a member account (which I’m unable to attain), so these details are pieced together from various resources around the Internet.

Current Zipcar members supposedly have 3 referral options:

1. To split the referral bonus $25/$25 with the new member.

2. To keep the entire $50 referral bonus and offer $0 to the new member.

3. To keep $0 from the referral bonus and offer $50 to the new member.

Referral credits do have an expiration date, so you must use them rather quickly, as they typically expire 30 days from the date of membership approval.

Only 1 referral credit may be applied to a referring member’s account for each referred member who executes a member contract and starts a non-trial offer rate plan under a non-sponsored/non-discounted account.

Referral credits cannot be applied to sponsored/discounted account applications.

If you are a member of Zipcar and have access to the referral program information, please feel free to provide further details in the comments section below this article, and you are more than welcome to share referrals with potential new members as well.

$25 Zipcar New Member Bonus

If you would like to earn a $25 credit when you open a new Zipcar account, you can sign up through the Zipcar referral link that is posted at Off Topic (the small banner or badge is the referral link).

Once you become a Zipcar member, please feel free to post your referral information in the comments section below this article in order to exchange Zipcar referrals with other members.

    Zipcar sucks. I referred over 100 people and they took away all my credits saying that I could only refer people I knew personally. Then they charged me around $300 for a 1 day rental because apparently if you drive a certain mileage you pay per mile afterwards (although it doesn’t say that anywhere except the terms and conditions, and who really reads those). I’ll never use their service again

    Just wanted to let you know that you are incorrect about the expiration of referral credits. If you read the terms and conditions, you will see that Zipcar clearly states that referral credits expire 30 days from the date of the award.

    Hello Brandon,

    Thank you very much for your comment.

    We contacted Zipcar customer service, and they confirmed that there is an expiration date:

    “Referral credits do have an expiration date on them, typically 30 days from the date of membership approval.”

    We’ve updated the above article to reflect this information, and I apologize for any confusion that this may have caused.

    Thank you very much for your help. Max
