Great idea and product.

The company sometimes applies major workflow changes, for instance how payments are done. It would be nice if there would be notifications to the user to explain why there is a change and what actually changes. There is in fact some confusion amongst users as to how things work because of this.

Also, the Messages section has never been very stable ever since I have used it, which is about a couple of years. Notifications come through, but if the user has the app open on the Messages section, One needs to exit the Messages section and come back in in order to refresh it and see new messages.

STILL can’t change the language - UPDATED

I downloaded the app while in France, but my phone’s settings are in English. Even so, the app insisted on French.
I’m back in the US, and traveling in Mexico frequently, but I’m still stuck using French and Euros. I know enough French to get around, but I’d much prefer English or Spanish. That you refuse to allow a language or currency change in the app shows that you fail to reconcile the diversity of your clientele.
Do better.

UPDATE: after a reply from the developer, advising me to change my region to the UK (I live in the US), I’d like to ask: Do the developers understand that this is an app for travelers, and thus it might be a nice feature to be able to customize options such as language and currency? Who wants to change the settings of their entire phone just to customize one single application?

I’m presently in Mexico, and would love to use the BlaBlaCar app to book a car. But when I use the app, my only options are French and Euros. So, I go to the website, change to Mexico and Pesos, and set up alerts for new trips. Then, I get emails about new trip in English, with Pounds as the currency?

Nobody wants to have to do all these unnecessary currency conversions, and nobody wants to struggle through a language they barely speak, unless the goal is to learn that language.

BlaBlaCar as a service is great, but there are a LOT of improvements that have to be made before this app can deserve 5 stars.

Hi Thomas! Here's what you can do: Make sure that you've closed the app.
Go to PHONE SETTINGS and follow these steps:
General - Language & Region - Region (If you want your app in ENGLISH, select UNITED KINGDOM as your REGION).
The app will then automatically open in the right language.
If it doesn’t, we know what you should do! Make sure that the language and region of your phone are the same as the language you want for the app.
You can always use our mobile site if you’d prefer: https://m.blablacar.mx/

User cannot choose his language

As other reviewers have pointed out, this app sets the language according to the country chosen, making it effectively useless for many of us. I understand from developer responses to other reviews that they are working on this problem.

There’s a feature for ID verification; my verifications failed repeatedly but no information as to why, or what to do was forthcoming.

Following my initial posting of this review, the developer kindly contacted me to ask for further details. To me this indicates a good developer so I improved my rating. Furthermore, they are releasing new versions frequently.
