October 28, 2020, Kuala Lumpur – GoCar, Malaysia’s on-demand car-sharing platform, has announced a new streamlined ‘One Price’ structure for its GoCar Subs offerings.
It includes a new official store on Shopee Malaysia and ‘Swap’ benefits for 12-months and above subscription plans.
GoCar Subs now aims to simplify the selection process for customers with the ‘One Price’ structure by grouping the wide range of vehicles in GoCar Subs’ fleet into five main categories – Cheap, Base, Plus, Expat and Luxe, ranging from national-made brands like Perodua and Proton to luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz and more.
Previously, rates were separately priced for each individual model, compared to now, each category offers one standard rate across all the models represented with multiple plan options for customers to choose from. The available plans include weekly, monthly, 12-month, 24-month and 36-month options.
“Given the wide range of models in our fleet, we wanted to make it easier for customers to search, compare and decide on the best options for them. We hope that reorganising our fleet into five categories with a more streamlined pricing structure will help make the selection process simpler and enhance the customer experience,” said GoCar Subs head of communication Jocelyn Ong in a statement.
In conjunction with this collaboration, GoCar Sub is offering an exclusive deal on the Nissan Almera that is available only via Shopee – a weekly subscription at the special rate of RM 299 (normal price: RM 499) and a monthly plan at RM 599 (normal price: RM 1,699). Limited units available.
As for the GoCar Subs’ ‘Swap’, it is a new benefit that gives customers who sign-up for a 12-month subscription and above, the access to the whole fleet of vehicles in the GoCar Subs garage.
How does ‘Swap’ work?
- Customers will need to subscribe to their preferred car for 12 months, 24 months or 36 months.
- Select an alternative vehicle when they are ready to swap (after a minimum of 3 months).
- Make a one-time swapping fee of RM 250 (waived for the first year of subscription).
- The monthly subscription fee is then automatically adjusted when they swap, which can be up or down depending on the vehicle they selected.
- Each customer is allowed to two swaps per year – so customers have access to up to three different models per year.
This is designed to revolutionise the way people access and use their GoCar Subs vehicle in the future, delivering total flexibility and freedom for a different car depending on the customer’s needs for that period.
“We understand that customers are craving for flexibility. With Swap, we believe we are meeting the needs of consumers who are looking for a whole new mobility solution, especially given the current uncertainties in the market. Now, customers can adjust their monthly commitments by upgrading or downgrading for a vehicle that meets their needs,” Ong said.
From now until December 31, customers can take advantage of the NEW2SUBS offering to enjoy further savings. Through this exclusive deal, customers who sign up for a 12-month or above subscription plan, will get the first month free and 50 percent off the second and third-month subscription fee.
Additionally, customers also can get a free mileage upgrade to 2,500 km monthly from 1,650 km and a swapping fee waiver for the first year if they decide to swap models or vehicles.
All bookings for regular rates and promotional rates are limited and on a first come, first serve basis. All fees are inclusive of comprehensive insurance, road tax, regular servicing and maintenance, as well as independently rated car inspection.
As a subscription programme, GoCar Subs customers also need not worry about hefty down payments, loan interest rates, being locked-in to long-term loan tenures and vehicle depreciation cost.
GoCar Subs is open to all Malaysian citizens and residents (valid international driving permits are accepted). Applicants only need to submit a copy of their driving license, identity card or passport, three-month payslip, EPF statement and three-month bank statement to subscribe.
