 Mayur Kenkre on Jun 15, 2019
I had rented a car from zoomcar on a no-fuel plan basis. They gave me a car with just 15% fuel. As our journey of coverage wasn't fixed we filled up fuel of 1000₹ (of which i have the receipt) to be on safe side. While returning the car the fuel was a lot left than the initial amount. Upon asking for reimbursement of the same fuel which i filled extra to be on a safe side, they refused to give any kind of reimbursement for the same. They said i should have calculated the fuel consumption of the car, of which i had no idea about, before starting the ride.

Hello Mayur,

We did go through the booking and see that the booking was made under no fuel package, we will not be able to process the refund for the excess fuel.

But why not? I mean i am not asking anything extra from you right? I am simply asking what is rightfully mine! And that's not a small amount. You guys actually shifted the blame on the customer, for being over cautious on the fuel consumption for the trip. This is something quite seriously wrong with your policies. Very subtle way of stealing customer's money. Anyone else feels the same way around here?

Same thing happened with me too. Even if i have booked the cab under no fuel, atleast extra fuel should be refunded as we did not use it. It is a common sense that people go to remote places too where we cannot find a petrol pump so obviously people will fill some extra fuel to avoid any issues. I think this is the reason zoomcar is gaining more profit by " claiming customer's own money on the name of some baseless policies". This is really ridiculous.
