With the summer vacation setting in we had made bookings in Club Mahindra, Madikeri for a week long stay. This was a family trip with two kids in tow. Normally we drive by our car from Pune if we are visiting places in Karnataka. This time around we decided to do something different and fly down to Bangalore (Air India had a killer sale) and then drive to Madikeri. Booking through Zoomcar I suggested to my husband why…

Shrinidhi Hande, one of our members and a travel enthusiast, lists his top 5 driving destinations around Bangalore. Check out his blog at www.enidhi.net. ————————————————————————————————– This post suggests driving destinations from Bengaluru for those of us who enjoy driving. If you ever feel stressed, hop on to a Zoomcar and zoom away to one of these places to rejuvenate yourself! These places have been picked because of the following reasons- curvy roads & hairpin bends, brilliant scenery, and…

India with its pervading taxi and cab culture still needs some time to adjust to the idea of self-drive rental cars. But once you have discovered the joys of self-drive rentals, you will never go back to sitting in the passenger seat of a taxi or cab. There are a host of reasons that prove self-drive rentals are way better than cabs, with some of the main ones being: 1. Privacy: Weekends and late evenings are the…

You may have seen our risqué crowdfunding campaign to “Pimp Out” a Hindustan Ambassador.  It was a success!  It warms our hearts to know we have such amazing and enthusiastic members.  What started off as a fun way to engage our members turned into media frenzy the likes of which we couldn’t ever have anticipated! In total we raised $1069 – 69 dollars more than our target!  We swear, we didn’t rig that number, but…

The Festival of Colors. The Festival of Love. The celebration of Spring, new beginnings, and new relationships. Clouds of color and faces covered with pink, yellow, green, and every color in between. It is easily the most iconic and photogenic holiday in India, and here at Zoom we have full intentions of celebrating with every ounce of energy we have! Part of the reason why I love to travel is because of the difference…

As many of you know, last week was the 1 year Anniversary of Zoom. In order to celebrate this momentous occasion we decided to celebrate in style; we went to BBQ nation on Tuesday night and stuffed our faces full of skewers! Personally, this was my favorite moment in all the time that I have spent with Zoom…and for good reason. When I came to Zoom 6 months ago we had 20 employees and were…

The holiday of love and romance. Beautiful bouquets of roses, boxes of chocolates, and candlelit dinners; regardless of where you live in the world Valentines Day is a particularly special holiday. However, sometimes Valentines day can be stressful; What do I wear? What presents do I get? Where do we go for dinner? What activities do I plan?!! The things we go through just to get some quality time with the person we love… This…

Today I would like to put some of our lesser-known team members under the spotlight. Every time you rent a car and self drive with Zoom, these are the people who help make the process easier. They take your calls, book your reservations, help you when you get into trouble, and most importantly they keep you smiling. Without these people, Zoom wouldn’t be able to keep the self-drive revolution alive. We are truly grateful to…

The past month has been an exciting one for us here at Zoom. We’ve doubled the size of our fleet from 50-100 cars, added the Ford Ecosports, and added another three locations!  We’ve had a lot of good news, and we’ve been getting some great interactions from our members (you) on social media. Now we want to get our community even more engaged! For the next month we will post different themed content all related to…

So how does Zoom compare to…
