N26 Launch Shared Spaces

N26 has been promising to release more features for some time now. It’s fair to say they have prioritised targeting new markets ahead of innovating especially as they try and conquer the US. Recently, N26 has launched a much requested feature – shared spaces. There is a catch though – it is only available to certain users for the time being in a close-testing trial. Once live, shared spaces will allow you to create a spaces sub-account and invite up to 10 participants to add and withdraw money between your shared space and their own N26 accounts. It is available…

GoCar have increased their hourly fees

As of 1st September 2019 GoCar have increased their hourly rates. The increase only affects GoCity, GoTrippers and GoCargos so the increase isn’t the worst. If they result in more GoBases and GoCars on the road I’m not overly against the increase. One other change is the minimum booking time is now one hour – previously it was 30 minutes. On top of this, the extra km charge for GoFar bookings will move to 15c from 10c. GoCity vehicles will move to €9 per hour, instead of €8 GoTrippers and GoVans will move to €11 per hour, instead of €10…

N26 You now offers Partner Discounts

N26 You is the new name for the N26 Black Account. This is N26’s middle offering sitting between their basic N26 account, and their premium N26 Metal account. When N26 announced the rename they promised to add new features and benefits though didn’t announce any specifics. It was widely rumoured that the first two enhancements would be Partner Discounts and the ability to have a back up MasterCard. Partner Discounts has just launched and they are a bit meh. I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting. I knew what I had hoped for – some sort of Lounge Pass…

N26 Black renamed to N26 You

N26 have renamed their N26 Black offering to N26 You. I’ve been a happy N26 Black customer for 2 years now but I am starting to notice that there are a lack of new features being added. With the rename to N26 You, they appeared to only make small changes to the offering – you can now specify what colour card you would like. There are five colours to choose from: Ocean, Sand, Rhubarb, Aqua and Slate. N26 You is their middle offering costing €9.90 per month. It sits between their basic N26 account and their premium N26 Metal account.…

The GoCar Mega Thread

GoCar is the largest car sharing program in Ireland. While the vast majority of their GoBases are in Dublin, they are expanding and have GoBases in Galway, Limerick, Killarney, Cork, Waterford, Wexford and more. A GoBase is simply a spot where there is one or more GoCars available to rent. My local GoBase is 3 reserved council parking spaces with a GoCity, GoTripper and GoVan based there. A rental must start and end at the same GoBase – you cannot do a one way rental. GoCar has been expanding rapidly and I’ve been using it more now I sold my…
