Self Drive Easily with Drivezy!


Who doesn't like road trips!
Road trips are fun, period! And who doesn’t like long drives? But what if you are in a new country where you do not own a car? Yes, I know self-drive cars are a big hit in countries like US, Canada and most of Europe. But India didn’t really have any self-drive car rental options till a few years back. Then came Zoomcar, all set to pave way for car rental services in India. Unfortunately, it was (and even now is) a tad bit out of budget for most. But guess what, now there are plenty of budget options in the market and one of them is Drivezy.com!

Why Drivezy?
Drivezy is a peer-to-peer rental car/bike service in India which is currently prominent in Bangalore, Mumabi, Mysore and Pune. Drivezy currently has the lowest security deposit for any rental car service in India. When I said low, I meant zero to 999. Mostly Drivezy does not charge any security deposit and would change the no deposit account to a low security deposit account only in case of accidents or late due fees. 
On top of that they also have reasonable base charges for cars depending on the type of car (SUVs, Hatchbacks etc…), age of the driver and anticipated kilometers of a drive. You can actually enter your car type, hours range and tentative kilometers and check the cost of your booking even before booking the car. And Drivezy's tariff calculator gives you the whole cost breakdown too. If this isn't being transparent, then I don't know what is! Also, they are not just all about cars. Drivezy also has bikes for people who love to rule the roads on powerful two-wheelers!

All the benefits!
You can also customize your rental plan depending on whether you want to include fuel costs or not and the number of hours you need the car for (Basically it is a combination of Hertz and Zipcar). And to make your experience more convenient Drivezy has instant refund on cancellations.
Another interesting feature that Drivezy has is ‘split cost’. If you love taking roadtrips with a bunch of your friends, this feature is a boon! One less expense to remember, one less expense to note on your splitwise balance and one less bulk pay to make.

Add your car to their list!
What got me most interested in Drivezy was their win-win strategy! So not only do people who love long drives benefit from Drivezy, people who have cars but don’t really use much can also benefit from Drivezy. Like I mentioned earlier, Drivezy is a peer-to-peer rental service so people can register their cars on Drivezy.com and make their car an earning member of their family, while helping people who need cars; and amidst all this Drivezy monitors the vehicles, protects and covers your vehicle and ofcourse provides assistance during the bookings. Basically, Drivezy follows the same business model as that of AirBnB!

Book Away a Getaway!

What you need to keep in mind right now!
Since, Drivezy is new and not as established as some of its counterparts, in most places you do not have on-demand pick up currently.
For people travelling to remote areas, Drivezy might not be able to reach you for roadside assistance if needed. In that case, you will have to collect the vehicle documents and arrange alternate transport. Drivezy will recover the vehicle themselves and reimburse the costs for your travel. For more information about this click here.
For cars, the minimum duration of booking is 3 hours for 'with fuel' package and 12 hours for 'without fuel' package, while for bikes it is flat 12 hours minimum.
So basically if you guys are in Bangalore, Mumbai or close by cities and you love driving at your own pace and exploring areas like me, you have a new friend who might be of great help – Drivezy.com.


P.S. Do check the renter’s clause before booking. Also, currently they have plenty of offers on their site. So, people going to Mysore for Dusherra – you guys can save up massively on transport!

  1. Awesome concept! I'm all about taking long road trips and like to encourage as many people as possible to follow! I think that the cost sharing application is pretty awesome. That way, one person doesn't have to be stuck with the whole bill!

  2. I love the option to split the cost between passengers, as most road trips are with multiple people! I'm glad that India now has this service. Looking forward to hearing more!

  3. Great post on driving a rental in India. It seems both affordable and accessible! However, I might be too afraid to drive in India because some people drive like maniacs! Seen it firsthand in Kolkata and New Delhi!

  4. Though I had heard of Zoomcar before, it is the first time I am hearing of Drivezy. It is actually a great idea. It makes like easy for many domestic as well as foreign travelers in India. Road trips in most parts of India are amazing anyways.

  7. This is the first time that I've heard about this service. But it is so promising since I also prefer driving when exploring a new city. It allows you more flexibility on what to see and how long you stay on each destination!

  8. Drivezy option looks amazing in India as road travel is always so beautiful . By reading all features, this company provides all support and customer friendly. This will help a lot to travel in India, instead of relying of local travel agents. This option must be more safe and reliable.

  9. Wow! I'm amazed no one has thought of that before!! I wonder are they planning to expand to other countries? I bet it really takes off over the next few years, just like AirBnB has. I'll look out for it downunder!

  10. I've been to India twice and never even thought about renting a car. What an interesting option - I've actually never heard of a peer to peer car service. Not sure I'd be brave enough alone, but with friends it sounds affordable and fun.

  11. Looks like a new launch in this field.
    For long distances we prefer hiring cars and this seems like a brilliant option. Thanks for the details.

  12. Love that India has this kind of service for tourists. It makes road trips easier and more affordable for tourists.

  13. Such a nice idea. I've literally had cases where I would skip a trip, no matter how much i love the place, due to the inability to get access to driving which is price friendly. This is so thoughtful of the Indian tourist centre as many travelers, inclusively me, love to have cars around when we go to new places

  14. Kinda crazy that India only in recent years got into the car hire thing. I've never heard about this service, but it is TOTALLY awesome it exists, I much prefer to have a car when travelling which means I can access places the locals only know about. The flexibility is wonderful.

  15. Thank you for this tip! I haven't been to India, yet. But being able to do it in my own car would certainly be more fun than relying on publuc transport only.

    Happy continued travels!

  16. Never even heard of an option like this!! Even in the US but that's probably because I never really rent cars! WIll definitely be checking this out though. Thanks!

  17. What an interesting concept for car rentals. I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to drive in India, but it would be nice to travel around at our own pace. Definitely something to consider for our next trip!

  18. THis is a good concept of car rentals. More so that you can share with other passengers. This is a very smart idea wish we had it too. I would definitely use this while traveling around India.
