| | Re: Pay & Zoom – A Brand New Self-Drive Service in Bangalore
To anyone interested, took ZoomCar for a day and half from Pune and turned out to be great. The car (EcoSport) was in great condition (22K kms done). Some points to note:
1) Their doorstep pickup/drop option is good but in time crunch situation - like I had where drop point was Pune airport - it might be better to opt for self drop as you know exactly where to drop the car. There is a chance that their person could be late at drop off point and then you would have to wait or park the car with inherent risks.
2) I saw they didn't check for minor scratches when I dropped the car (luckily there was none on my car), all they do is note the dents and big visible scratches. Make sure you take photos of the car from all angles (and the ares where you see even smaller scratch) just to be safe if the person handling the drop gets too picky.
You can also use their app to fill the "checklist" which actually means gathering info about dents, scratches issues seen at pickup time. If their peson is filing the checklist, ensure he puts all that you see.
3) ZoomCar did not charge me 5K security deposit - may be because of my first booking.
