I am from Kolkata where I have a friend circle, a bunch of driving enthusiasts and we used to have frequent long drives to distant places like Shantiniketan, Chandipur etc. Last year I got transferred to Bengaluru, I was definitely happy with the new role, location and assignment but was saddened by the thought that our weekly trips would be stopped now.

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…

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…
