Product/Service Summary

Zoom is India's first and only 100% self-drive car rental service. We allow individuals to hire vehicles by the hour, day, week, or month. Our model is hyper local as we have distributed vehicle pick up and drop points across cities. We're currently live in Bangalore with 100 vehicles across 12 locations. More cities will go live in 2014.

How are we different?

We offer a web and mobile based solution to booking vehicles for self-drive. Our distributed model means that vehicles are always within a very short distance of where individuals live or work. Unlike competitors, we don't require huge security deposits and we also take debit cards as well as credit cards.
