App still limited compared to desktop

ZipCar is a great service but the app still has limited options compared to the desktop version. You can only search for a car to use on the same day rather than booking ahead and when you swipe through the cars available it often only shows you one car. It also doesn’t allow you to review your whole booking before you confirm. At the point where you confirm the booking the only things that are visible are the time you’ve selected and the name of the car. You can no longer see the location or the price so i always feel nervous clicking confirm.

Completely useless and unfriendly to use

Updated August 2017. Yet again the developers update app and it is unusable again. Can't even book a car at all now, just get endless error messages. Only can through full website. Utter garbage and waste of my membership. How much longer until you fix this disgrace?

Agree with all the other reviewers. This is nightmare to use and book cars, can't see availability of cars, I, like other reviewers, rarely care exactly what time i want a car, just that i need it for x hours to do errands. I've just tried and failed to see whether car i've booked today is free to extend booking. This isn't a patch on streetcar ap. like another reviewer it makes me question my subscription. Also hate the useless 'good to know' fluff and the awful americanisms. Plus the endless stupid reminder texts telling me I've booked and when the booking ends. I'm a sentient adult allowed legally loose on the roads so I am capable of remembering the length of my booking. Hate this ap.

Why only one star?

There is a simple answer.
One star for Efti, Yannis, Analyn, Demetra and then Efti again from the Zipcar Call Centre in a snowy Athens. That’s right while there were blue skies in January in south west London there was snow in Athens!
They were all very helpful and understanding. However there is definitely something profoundly wrong.
More than Climate Change too right there was a problem.
I had booked a VW Touran - the same one as I had booked before Christmas. Then I was told with twenty four hours notice that it was unavailable, because of the front left tyre had a tyre pressure issue.

The replacement vehicle had a fault too. So I had to travel from Putney to Paddington via South Kensington. That was before Christmas.

And so today imagine my concern that the vehicle I originally booked still had the same tyre pressure issue.

The problem was compounded when the replacement vehicle had kept saying “Oil Service NOW!” I consulted the Zipcar team to make sure that I bought the correct oil for the specific vehicle. I was told the oil could be charged to the fuel card. The garage said it couldn’t. The new oil did not solve the problem so I took the vehicle back.

I am still waiting for a reply from Zipcar to my last email!
