Bad UX Design

Your service is really awesome, but the app lacks a lot of user experience. And need more user testing and Ux research.

There is a lot of missing behaviors.

You can book a car, and once you reach the car, it doesn’t start. And when i called the service center they told me that this car is not working please choose another one.
(So why your putting not functional cars on the map?)

Second, I booked a car for a month, the delivery spots said its between 12-3 pm when i finalized the booking it showed me that the car is pending and the delivery is between 3-6pm, and after calling many times the support told me that this car is not available and we have one but its doubled the price. (1- why ur putting unavailable cars on the list? 2- if the car is not available why I dont receive any message or alert that this car is not available? 3- why do you make the user wait all these hours and at the end you said its not available?)

I like your service! And i like your cars! But please get a proper UX Designer and fix the app!! Thank you ♥️

Beware of the Surprise fees!!!!

Although the idea and the service is very practical and nice, but the rip off hits you by surprise after returning the car if they claim that you have not returned it with the same fuel level as when u received the car Especially that it’s a percentage value that only the company can decide on, we as customers can’t know the numbers except when you find you were charged 40-50$ for fuel level discrepancy. Even if you had 1% discrepancy, they charge u for a full tank.

That is a Rip Off

Developer Response ,

Hi, our long term vehicles do not cover fuel and parking and to avoid any inconvenience to the next possible user we request all our users to refuel the car to the same level before ending the trip. We do give a buffer of 10% variance but anything beyond this will attract a penalty.

Bad experience

I got a car when I drove the tire pressure was showing low for all 4 tire and the sirens for that started, so I call the costumer care and was advised to find nearest station to check the, so I did but the sirens did not stop so I call again but this time I was informed to replace the car by other and I will be refunded the money for first car, but since I was out the region of the drop off car I had to deal the noisy sound of the sirens until I got to other car.
After I replaced the car I called to refund as promised by customer the first car cost, at least portion of first car cost as i waist my time stop by station to check to tire, and then time to find another car , and for dealing with this noisy sound while driving.
However, the request was denied and I got nothing
