What's New in Version 5.1
What’s new?! EVERYTHING! Everything under the hood has been rebuilt to give all of you, our members, the best experience possible with a new interface and increased stability.
New App is almost worst than their customer service!!
The new app is awful! I can't save addresses and it doesn't auto zoom in my location and drive options once an address IS typed!
Can't change payment options which is MOST IMPORTANT! How do you not give your users that simple freedom to choose how they pay??
You basically can't do anything except book a car.
And then when you try to call for help - hah! Might as well call your uncle who's on that business trip in Borneo. He'll be more helpful than the reps at Zipcar. Once I had an extremely faulty transmission and had to follow up myself for three weeks to get any kind of acknowledgement, AND to get them to listen and take the car off the road or fix it! This time, I've called twice to have wiper fluid put in the SUV that I always rent....still nothing! And winter is here so when it snows and there's no fluid? Thanks for looking out Zipcar. I'm about to start using the newer car sharing services that have joined the arena. Things can only go up from here.
Zipcar needs to improve customer service you can’t get your problems rectified when speaking to a representative all they say is “ I don’t know I’m sorry for the mishap “ I’ve been with Zipcar for about three months I’ve heard bad reviews about them but still wanted to give it a try . So recently my account has been closed due to payment issues . Please keep in mind my account always has sufficient funds & when ever I use zipcar the charges come on immediately . Talked to one rep & all she said yea once the membership team closes your account that’s it . I get my account closed based on a error on your side . Please take more pride in customer service !! ATTEND TO CUSTOMERS ! 0 rating . They will make everything smooth at first then after awhile close your account . This happened to four other people I know as well who were zipcar members .
Update is Garbage
I hadn't had any issues with the app before today, but when I went to book a car today I noticed the updated UI and attempted to block out a time for a specific car. The app told me that the car was already reserved even though the time blocks were all white. I thought maybe I misunderstood what the colors meant (bad UI), but had no luck with other cars either.
I'm not a huge fan of the new layout either. I went to the search feature and it wasn't prompting anything until I went to my drives and followed the prompt to book a new car. It's far more complicated and the issues are compounded by the fact that I wasn't actually able to use the app for its intended purpose.
