According to the company blog, customers will be allowed to drive the auto only for 30 minutes for one booking and will need to pay only Rs 40 for a 30-minute drive. They will have to undergo a 10-minute guidance session with the fleet executive before driving the auto. After the session, the customer will be able to drive for 20 minutes, accompanied by two professionals. He can drive only in a 1 km radius around pick-up site.
Zoomcar says, customers will be charged a refundable security deposit of Rs 5000 for every booking, which seems to be a challenging affair given the pricey amount .
Customers can avail the service on the Zoomcar website or their app (android/iOS).
