Can I Get a Refund For Returning Zipcar Early?

Many clients return a Zipcar early; however, the car-sharing service does not provide any discounts or money-back refunds for early returns. When you first book your Zipcar, you will be required to pay for the time you choose upfront and returning it early would not make it available for other users, so no matter when you decide to return the car, you will not be able to get a refund on the extra time. However, if you are late in dropping the car off, then you will be charged a late fee. Late fees start at around $50. If you think you will be late in returning a Zipcar, you can use the Zipcar app to try and extend your reservation, but if someone has already reserved the car after you, then you will not be able to get an extension on your time.
