horrible experience today. we tried to extend the reservation, but couldn't do this online or over the phone. when you log onto the website they tell you call them. when you call them, then there's no way for them to take your updated credit card info on the phone (FYI in case your card happens to expire soon) and they have to call you back. of course they never called us back in time.

clean cars
more availability than zipcar

poor customer service - spoke to 3 different people, none of which could help us beyond "we'll have someone call you back to collect your credit card info"
poor software and systems - had to give the spelling and full name AND 15+digit customer # in order for their system to recognize who i was (vs. zipcar who knows your number when you call them).
i used NYFLYER when I signed up, and i never got any free membership or credit.

All in all, a good concept, but clearly in BETA and if customers have similar experiences to mine, i'd venture to say that they should get a lot better - quickly!

Hello NYers (sorry rest of world), found this new deal for Mint -- on site it says you can get a $25 driving credit for signing up w/ promo code BUT i was handed a flyer just yesterday that claimed a $35 driving credit if you use promo code NYFLYER.

No expiration date!

Note: They only have about 5 cars, and they are all in New York City.
Would have to be free, Unless you are one of the 5 people that are hoarding the cars. Semi Good Idea, Horrible Execution.
