Used them at the peak of the season, between Christmas and just before New-year for four days. I was there for more days but since the prices were 'sky-high' returned it earlier.
I would rate them four-stars out of five. One star less because:

'sky-high' prices, but this can be accepted because this is the peak of the peak season in Goa.
I had contacted them two months earlier itself and requested for a yellow-on-black number-plate. But I got only a black on white.
I was promised a Swift but just a few days before was told that I would be getting a WagonR instead.
When I took delivery, petrol was at 4 bars but when I dropped the car they told me it was at 5 bars. Anyway it was their own photo which came to my rescue (the amount involved is minor, it was the attitude).
There was a dent in the rear which they were discussing, maybe to charge me, but again their own photo showed the dent was there when I took delivery.
I felt that they were trying their darnedest to charge me extra for something, out of the Rs.5,000 I paid as deposit! They took some time going over the car, looking underneath, etc, but finally returned the full deposit.

The good:
Shameena was very friendly and professional throughout.
(I had mentioned that I was a team-bhp member for 9+ years).
The car was well maintained and a joy to drive.
The radio and charger-port worked well.

Shameena and her staff Imran were there when I took delivery.
When dropping the car, found out that the young and friendly guy was called Zain and was Shameena's son.

I will certainly use their services the next time I go to Goa!
And recommend to friends and family to use them.

Referred Zain Travels to my cousin who used it for four days in January.
Rs.1,400 per day for the WagonR.

His pick-up time was around 8 pm.
His drop time was around 4 am in the morning.
Everything was arranged well and he was very satisfied with their service.

Here are the details of my dealing with Zain Travels -


One thing is for sure, that White number plate car is definitely to be avoided.

Based on my dealing and having read other reviews about Zain, I would summarize it as - all is nice and good in general. But as soon as things start going even a little South, their attitude drastically changes.
