Service is terrible. Hired a car, car was faulty. Called for a rebooking, they cancelled a different one of my trips instead. Uber said they would rebook it, they didn't. Instead, they also charged me for the cancelled trip and haven't responded. On top of that, I hired a car, it was filthy and now they're charging me for returning it with a mess, even though the photos clearly show the car was dirty on arrival. They really need to sort out the support staff here, it's awful. App is also slow.

My experience with this app made my last trip home (Melbourne) awesome. I'm not sure if I lucked out with the lovely people whose car I rented or if the app is just super well designed or both. Great directions to find the car, smart things like taking photos of all panels of the car on collection -I can't remember if it did the same on drop off. It found the PERFECT car for me & so incredibly close and the price was unbelievable. I had so much fun driving as I'm still struggling in the US.

The app seems to have an issue with uploading photos, specifically with the selection process. After a random number of selected items the screen jumped to a mid point in my gallery. Super annoying. Then on upload it frequently would produce an error. Had to make several attempts before a successful upload. Samsung Galaxy S7.
