How does the Ukrainian car-share?
We must begin, perhaps, with the fact that the company “Geomancer” extensive experience in the rental business for over 12 years. Classic hire is now available not only in several cities of Ukraine, but also in several countries. Therefore, working on the project car-sharing, here summarized both European and local Ukrainian experience.
And if in detail then in Kiev (a car sharing initially kicks off in the capital) will be two zones. One – big – within which you can easily move on Ravon R2. This Kiev, and small suburban cities and villages such as Cherry or Concha Zaspa (area of use). Another area less. In the conventional square You can take and leave the car (the area of the beginning and end of the car-share). Yes, Yes, write anywhere, even under your house. Except for private yards, where a stranger enters and similar places with limited access.
In order to find a car nearby, you need to download the special smartphone app and register. Enter your information and attach photo of driver’s license, passport and payment card details. According to Mr. Hetman, registration takes only 5 minutes late must be approved by the company (verification of documents) that will not be more than 48 hours. So much time is required to check the entered data. After this, you can safely use car sharing. And do not need to be mandatory to come to the office “Geomancer” and stand there in the queue.
