Never renting from a traditional car rental company again
I’ve had some terrible experiences with renting cars, in particular I remember waiting in line at Avis for about an hour when trying to pick up a car in Maui that I had already paid for. And at the Seattle airport where the person renting me the car charged without my permission extra insurance. And since I signed it, I didn’t have any recourse thru my credit card company. Anyways, using the Kyte app reminded me of how it felt to use Uber back in 2009, when it was new and the alternative was just taxis. It was life changing. Now I don’t rent cars that often, so I’ll save the hyperbole, but this is soo much better than the current opinions. I just wish they were in more cities.
Kyte got all the little things right. When I first got my car, I was in a rush, my phone was nearly dead, and I was running late. When I got in, there was a phone charger and holder waiting in the dash for me. When I got home from my trip, I completely forgot to refill the car with gas. Turns out, you don't even need to do that with Kyte! They refill the tank and don't charge any surcharges or fees. I had a great experience!
Christmas Eve Fail
I saw this app and thought it sounded amazing. I booked a car and got my confirmation email. The home screen showed my upcoming reservation so I assumed all was good. So today I’m waiting to get my car delivered and it hasn’t arrived . I click on the char button where it says there was an issue and my reservation was canceled. I was more than confused at this point as I never had a cancellation email or even a push notification for chat. I called the number and it’s a free google voice number. This really does not seem like a well run organization and chat support could have cared less that they left me scrambling to find another car in SF on Xmas Eve. I’ll stick with apps like Turo or even a more established rental company.
Developer Response ,
Thank you very much for sharing your experience.
I would like to sincerely apologize, on behalf of the Kyte Team, for your experience with our service this past December. I would also like to extend an apology for the significant delay in our response to your review. At Kyte, our goal and mission is to make the car rental process as easy and straightforward as possible, and we pride ourselves in our customer service. This said, it is very clear that your experience with Kyte was most definitely not a good representation of the type of quality we want to provide, and I’m truly sorry we were not able to match our standard of service.
Although in no way justifying your negative Kyte experience, we were greatly overwhelmed by demand during the holiday period and were unable to fulfill your booking. I completely acknowledge that the lack of better communication, and prior notice given before your booking was cancelled, was a grave mistake on our end and was, once again, completely out of line with the type of service we strive to be.
I would love to offer you a special, deep discount in hopes you will give us another go! Please reach out to me, Julia, at email@example.com and I will get you setup!
We truly appreciate your feedback and are looking forward to “wow” you for the next try!
I look forward to hearing from you,
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
