Mount Holyoke College's contractual relationship with ZipCar is specific to permitting ZipCar to place vehicles for community use on our campus in exchange for favorable membership and rental rates for our students. MHC does not provide any insurance in excess ZipCar's insurance unless the vehicle is rented for college business. MHC recommends that all students read the membership agreement carefully as this is a legal contract. Students under 21 have only state minimum insurance limits ($20,000/$40,000/$5,000) and are responsible for the $1,000 physical damage deductible. Lower deductibles and higher insurance limits are not available to students under 21. MHC is not responsible for any damage, loss, or claim arising from the use of ZipCars by any person unless the vehicle has been specifically rented on college business.
