I signed up to GoCar on Monday. On the website I saw mentions of a membership card which is used to unlock the car when but the site also referred to unlocking the car with the app. I presumed that now you only used the app and they had stopped issuing cards. Well today I received a letter from GoCar with my membership card. It appears you can use either the card or the app to unlock the car. I suppose this makes sense as not all phones have NFC capabilities.
There was some other information of note in the letter:
If you take a photo with the car and post it to their Twitter or Facebook you get €10 free credit to use on the next journey.
Fuel: There is a Topaz Fuel Card in all vehicles, located at the rear of the glove box. The pin is located on the driver’s sun visor. You must return the car back with at least a 1/4 tank.
Parking: Most of the vehicles include free parking in Dublin City Council parking spaces. To ensure the vehicle is included check the DCC permit on the windscreen.
I’m hoping to get to test out the card in the coming days – just waiting until I’ll be near one of the BMW i3s!
If you use code m0194o when signing up for GoCar you will get €25 discount on your first trip.
