We’ve all been in this situation: you’re happily strolling around Ikea, stopping to gobble up a few meatballs, thinking your Zipcar is free for hours after and you’ll just text to extend your reservation towards the end. Suddenly you get a text saying that there’s another member booked in straight after you and you’ll need to hurtle through the endless maze of Ikea and drive the 10 miles back through London traffic to the Zipcar bay – all in 30 minutes – and then sheepishly sidle up to the disgruntled fellow member waiting for you.
But now, those clever guys who make all Zipcar’s techie stuff as amazing as possible have created a cool and highly useful new update. We’ll send you a text to let you know if and when a new booking is made in your Zipcar straight after yours, advising you as far in advance as possible if you won’t be able to extend, so you can plan your trip accordingly, and help you avoid pesky late return fees.
To take advantage of this clever update make sure that you’re signed up for text alerts.
