We’ve been working hard on the DriveNow App so it’s now even smarter and comes with a cool new look! You can now take control of the entire rental process and manage everything on your smartphone. No need to worry about choosing options on the in-car screen or wondering how much time you have left on your rental. Let’s take a look at what’s new: Car radarCan't find a DriveNow nearby? Activate the car radar in the app and you'll be notified as soon as a car is available in your selected area. Schedule a notification at any time, up to 7 days ahead. The best thing? If you're wanting a specific model, use the car filter and the radar will let you know as soon as one is available. HandshakeHand over your car to the next driver so you don't need to look for a parking bay! When you enter your destination in the app, select 'Handshake at destination'. The car will appear in the app with a special arrow icon for the next driver to reserve. Once you're at your destination, use the app to hand over the car so the next driver can start their rental. ‘Trip duration’ timer: View the ongoing time of your rental or how much time you have remaining on an hourly or daily package. This is displayed on the main app screen once you start your rental. If you go over time on a package, the countdown will continue so you can keep track easier. Dynamic slider: Use the app slider to choose the ‘Park & Keep’ option – you no longer need to select anything on the in-car screen. Just hop out of the car and close the door, choose ‘Park & Keep’ and swipe the slider to confirm. The rental will continue at a reduced rate of 19p/minute until you resume driving. Call it a day with your smartphone: Choose ‘End Rental’ via the app, even when it has been left on ‘Park & Keep’ and you’re not close to the car. This is ideal for when you need to finish your rental sooner than expected. See our parking guidelines. More comfortable refuelling: If you need to refuel the car, you can view the latest information about the refueling process as well as the fuel card PIN in the app. Just tap ‘Refuel’ in the app to display the info. Fresh new look: The app looks a little different as well. But don’t worry, all the trip planning features are still there. Enter your destination, reduce your excess, book an hourly or daily package, and choose to use your business or private account in the app before you set off. Easy! Your customer card will still work throughout the rental process as well if you need. Update the app today (iOS or Android) and enjoy the DriveNow experience even more!
