Overall, it was a pleasant experience.
Had an opportunity to rent out a Chevy-Enjoy from these folks last week for a run to Bangalore. There are no swanky offices & getting there can be a chore, but the staff were really great Everything about an unknown vehicle that matters to drivers about to take one out was explained & demonstrated clearly.

Per-day rent for the "Enjoy" was 3K & any Kms more than the per-day limit of 300 Kms was charged at Rs.6-per-Km. The Enjoy was just 2 months old & resulted in a painless drive to Bangalore & back. Would recommend these folks for those looking for a value-for-money rental agency

I have used carzonrent, but it was in 2009, they are professional, but slightly on the expensive side, and they try to take every opportunity to charge you extra money, so be ware of that.

At that time we booked a Swift, at the price of Rs. 1500 per day, for two days. After insurance, riders and taxes, the total amount for two days came to Rs. 5200. So its not cheap.

Hi

Looking to hire a self drive car from Jaipur preferably for a Rajasthan roadtrip (and avoid Delhi which has multiple options but adds to the time taken and distance traveled - I'm a resident of Bangalore) Think Orix has service there but could not find much info about vehicle options and charges at their site.

Any info will be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Hi

Have a bit of a complicated trip plan. I am looking for a self drive rental that originates from Delhi but who will need to drop the car at Udaipur from where I will pick it up. I am willing to look at them also providing a driver to drop the car from Delhi to Upaipur, and I will pay for his return trip back to Delhi through other transport. I will drop the car back in Delhi after a Rajasthan road trip on the way back. Request if someone could provide any information about travel agencies who can customize the same

Regards

Carzonrent has introduced Myles, a self-drive car rental service. With plans to operate a fleet of 5000 cars in 35 cities across India, the company is investing an estimated Rs. 400 crore on the project over the next three years.

Hi BHPians,
need your advice on agencies in Mumbai who provide self driven cars. As this thread is quite old, request your fresh inputs. I will be visiting Mumbai for a month in December and would prefer to have a self driven car instead of depending on taxis and autos. No preference as such for the car type as long as it is relaible, comfortable, clean and doesn't guzzle fuel.
Thanks

Used myles selfdrive service from carzonrent recently. My take below

Vehicle booked - Innova
Duration - 1 day
Booked from - Gurgaon, Haryana

A colledge friend was getting married at Modinagar (Uttar Pradesh) - about 80 odd kms from Delhi and all us friends from college decided to book an innova taxi so that we could go together. Decided to take the self drive option since it was working out cheaper. Moreover there were seven of us so it was more comfortable without and extra driver. We needed the cab from Saturday noon to Sunday noon. Following were the economics

Innova white plate taxi
Rent for 2 days @ 200km/day @ 14rs/km = 5600
Extra driver charges for overnight halt = 400
total = 6000

Myles self drive taxi
Rent for 24 hours = 2474 including taxes
Diesel for 200 km run = 1200
Road tax for U.P. for 2 days = 365.40
MCD entry charges to delhi = 90 (@ 45/entry)
Total = 4129.4

I booked the cab online which was relatively easy and chose a pickup place near by. It gave a list of documents to carry (Passport & DL). I also had to carry a credit card for pre-authorization of 50,000 as security deposit. It said online that I will be contacted by the concerned pickup location shortly. The online receipt below
Feedback on different Self Drive rental agencies-carzonrent.jpg

Now the wait starts and it is 2 hrs before my pickup time and no call. I decided to ring up the helpline and after being given a number of someone who gave me another number who directed me to a third person, I finally managed to get in touch with the concerned person after a good 30 minutes. Not a promising start.

The concerned person is not sure about my booking and calls me back after checking to say that my preferred pickup location is not working out and he will send the cab to my place with the credit card machine and documentation to which I agreed. 15 minutes later he calls back and says I should rather come to their other office and do the documentation and he will get me picked. At this moment I felt that I had made a wrong decision and these guys are a bunch of incompetents.

Nonetheless the pickup cab turned up before time and I was driven to the office not too far from my place. From this point onwards it was a brilliant experience to deal with the agency and they more than made up for their initial fumble to the point I would rate them 5 stars. Key pointers
  • I was allotted a brand new Innova - driven only 700 kms
  • Top of the line GX model with 3 row ac, driver seat height adjustment, airbag, abs, parking sensors etc
  • Documentation was very quick and clean
  • On my request they deposited the required UP road tax there and than only, vide my credit card and gave me print out of receipt
  • Car had all the required documents nicely placed in a folder
  • Car had a ice box, music system & screen with DVD player

The concerned person Mr. Devender was a pleasure to deal with. When I expressed concern over taking a brand new car incase I scratch it he assured that as a company policy any small damage below 3000 rs will not be chargeable.

The car performed brilliantly and took 7 overgrown adults in total comfort to the marriage party and back. Returning was equally painless and I was dropped home.

All in all an excellent deal and experience. I don't think I will ever hire a driven taxi again.

cheers
Vishwas

Yes, I used the self drive service from Girikand travels in Pune. Rented Innova for 5 days to go to Dandeli and back.

Can't remember exactly now, but I guess they charged around 2800 per day. You can check rates online.

Pretty happy with service and the vehicle. No doubt will go to them next time if there's a need.

An update with a twist. Received a mail from carzonrent thanking me for using their services and a link to invoice on their website.

The invoice on website shows INR 1939 pending towards me owing to some parking/driving tickets. I am very amused with the mail, I have already got my refund on security and expecting me to pay for it now is hilarious.
Nonetheless being a good Samaritan and very pleased with their service, I decided to ask for chalan details. I had made up my mind to pay it if, I have violated any traffic rules during my usage which attracted penalty.

Thats when I noticed that all details on the invoice are wrong (my address, DL no., car no. kms etc etc). Net net only my name is correct on the invoice.
Below is the most misguided invoice I have ever seen
Feedback on different Self Drive rental agencies-myles-invoice.jpg

Though it doesnot bothers me but I have shot a stern mail to them, demanding a rectified invoice with no dues.

I want to set the book right as I am looking forward to using their services again and do not want any hankypanky in future.

Will keep updating as the story unfolds.

cheers

Hi Vishwas, I am wondering how can the rental start date and rental close date be the same in both the invoices. Does it mean a single day rent as per them, when the car was taken on Saturday noon to Sunday noon 24 hrs.

Anyway, I have a long experience of dealing with carzonrent (erstwhile Hertz), their working is like this only. The right hand does not know what the left is doing. You will never find any synchronisation within their own departments. But yes, one thing that they are very prompt is customer service.

I have found their services to be very good when compared with other operators in the market.
