Does the job, but improvements needed
This app has functionality to create and manage e-car bookings on the go. I really appreciate that it is possible to extend the return time during the reservation.
However, various improvements are needed to make it a really great experience:
- The main issue is that for bookings that can be flexible with time, there is no display of the availability of cars over a full day. If cars are booked for the time period requested, the app displays "Vehicle unavailable", and the only solution is to repeat the search with different times until an available period is found. On the website, there is a display of when the car is booked/available over the length of a full day.
- When multiple cars are found, sliding down can sometimes be difficult as the app keeps highlighting the car under your finger instead. It doesn't always happen though.
- If you get charged extra because the car is returned slightly late, the booking view doesn't show it, even though it is displayed on the website.
- in the side menu, the "SUPPORT" button fails to open the web page because the URL uses the wrong domain (e-carclub instead of ecarclub).
I got my UK license when I was 17 and started using this service when I was 19. So far on the market the only car rental which allows young drivers to use which is great. I have had no issues other than turning up to a car that I have booked and it is not there. Customer service is more than happy to replace the car with a different one. Really cheap and extremely easy to use. The only downside is that the cars located near me cannot be used Monday-Friday 08:00-18:00 which restricts how much I can use it. They are sitting there on charge without anyone using them. Would love to use it more however this may be restricted to my local car park. Been using for almost 4/5 months now with more than 100 hours of driving and not a single problem. This is a great platform ( although the app needs an ever so slight optimisation ). Would deffo recommend!
Great solution for an already existing great idea.
The app makes booking vehicles so much easier. Booking a vehicle quick is effortless and has never faulted me. I love the feature to end your booking and start your booking too, helpful especially when you leave the house without your membership card by mistake!
