Is there anything I need to do before my ride?
Before you ride please make sure to do a safety check! Make sure the brakes are working, the tires are undamaged and the lights work.
How do I park my eScooter?
Zipp Mobility eScooters can be parked almost anywhere within our Operational Area. That said, please ensure that you do not park scooters in the way of pedestrians and drivers.

Am I insured when I ride Zipp?
Our eScooters are insured by Zego. When riding a Zipp Mobility eScooter you are covered under Rider Liability Insurance. This is for protection against damages to third parties. You are covered up to £1 million for material damages and unlimited for bodily injury to a third party.

How environmentally friendly is Zipp?
We are passionate about the environment and as such sustainability plays a key role in our business model. Zipp Mobility uses electric cargo bikes to pick up batteries for recharging and uses electric vans where a collection of the eScooters themselves is necessary. The use of electric bikes and vans ensures that Zipp Mobility is environmentally friendly in all aspects of its operation and means that Zipp Mobility has a small carbon footprint.
Vehicle hardware problems
Can’t unlock - Check the following:
Is the scooter on the Rider Map?
Does the scooter have more than 20% battery?
Have you turned on Bluetooth and 4G?
Do you have the latest version of the Zipp app and phone software?
Is there enough money on your card?
Close and restart the app.
If none of the above, please contact Customer Support.
No Parking Zone
Scooters have to be parked within the operational zone as shown on the map.
There are some locations inside the geofence where it is not possible to park too! If you try to park in “No Parking Zone”, you’ll get a message asking you to bring the scooter back. Ending the ride a red zone may result in a penalty fee.
If you're having problems, don't worry! Tell us the scooter ID (4 digits on the handlebar) and give us a brief description of what happened.

Shut down during ride
If a scooter slowed down and stopped during the ride, it's most likely because it ran out of battery. Our best advice for you here is to check the battery level before you start a long ride (planning is always a good solution!).
Information about the battery level of a scooter is displayed directly in the app. You can check it easily by tapping on a scooter icon on the map.
So, if a scooter has less than 30% and you're planning a long Zipp, try looking for another one.
Can’t end ride
Sometimes, the scooter won’t connect when you're trying to end a ride. In most cases, the reason for the problem lays in connection issues or bad reception/signal.
To make it work, it's usually enough to: Make sure that you're standing right next to the scooter; Reboot the app; Make sure that your app is updated (yes, sometimes it's the cause of problems with ending a ride!).
If none of these hacks work, contact our support. We’ll end the ride for you!
Phone ran out of battery
Please, ensure you have enough battery before you start the ride! If you ran out of battery while riding a Zipp, the scooter will be considered abandoned and you may be charged a fee. Please, contact support for further information.
Can't find the scooter shown on map
We use centimetre level positioning at Zipp so our scooters should always be available when shown on the map. However, sometimes scooters hide some 5-10 meters from the map location. If you really can’t find it, please mark it as missing in the app.
There is a fixed unlock fee of £1 after which you will be charged £0.15 per minute of usage. The cost of riding a Zipp may vary from city to city and may depend on the time of day.
