Get the free app now. If you're a fan, tell a friend and rate us. If you think there's a way we can make it better, we’d love to hear all about it - join our beta group https://goo.gl/V1Uu4K and tell us what you think! Our Android team love hearing your feedback!
Regarding app permissions - we’re piloting a fast and easy new way to register for Zipcar in some cities where new users can scan their driving licence and payment card and become a member in minutes. This new feature uses the camera to scan the ID and payment card, so you may see a new permissions update when you install the app. Let us know if you have any questions and we’d be happy to answer them!
