GoCar have reduced their daily rates!

GoCar has really expanded in recent times and I am seeing more GoCars on the roads. I do believe car sharing will be the future but we aren’t quite yet there. Ideally we will reach a critical mass where you are not required to return the car back to its base instead you can leave it at your destination similar to Dublin Bikes. However we are still a long way from that. GoCar are introducing more pricing options which is always good to see. They have recently announced that thru end of July their daily rates for GoCity, GoTripper and…

Expired Requests with Revolut

A lot of my friends and family use Revolut. I have the app and 4 different Revolut cards at this point. I am not Revolut’s biggest fan – I have had bad experiences with their customer support and I find their app very confusing to use, as a result I rarely use Revolut. I never use them for purchases any more, instead I only occasionally send and receive money from friends and family through Revolut. I find it good especially the ability to be able to request money. However, there is a big flaw in this system. If you request…

How far can you drive with GoCar?

I have been using GoCar more frequently after selling my car so will be covering a lot of different features of GoCar in the coming weeks. One question I get asked a lot is how far can you drive a GoCar? GoCar’s prices include all tax, insurance and petrol costs however each trip only includes 50KM free. After those 50KM each additional KM is 50c. This means driving from Dublin to Cork will cost around €235 for additional KM – not exactly cheap. There is a cheaper way however – GoFar. If you book select cars for over 6 hours,…

N26 Metal has come to Ireland

N26 has three main current account offerings to personal customers – N26, N26 Black and N26 Metal. Up until last week only the standard N26 account and N26 Black was available in Ireland. This week, they’ve announced N26 Metal is now also available to Irish customers. At first I was excited but honestly, I’m not quite sure where the value offering of N26 Metal is. The standard N26 account is free and N26 Black costs €9.90 per month while N26 Metal costs €16.90 per month. In addition to everything offered by N26 Black, N26 comes with: Metal MasterCard Debit Card…

Discounted GoCar overnight with GoHome

I previously reviewed GoCar in February 2017. Back then I owned a car and I didn’t really see the appeal of GoCar. However, I have sold my car and been relying on GoCar for about 9 months at this point. My view of GoCar has changed dramatically and I’m glad I finally bit the bullet and sold my car. I will do an overview post of ‘living with GoCar‘ in the coming days. This post is just to highlight a cool new pricing feature that GoCar introduce recently – GoHome. GoHome offers a 50% discount on the daily rate for…
