Hop-on GoTo electric vehicles: The cheap car rental alternative for short trips

We all know the feeling. Your car is in for a service, so you either have to take the day off to navigate public transport… or you end up having to hire a car.

The problem is that hiring a car in itself is a hassle and it’s also expensive. So, what do you do? Well, what if we told you that you can use a hop-on GoTo electric car and pay as you go?

Prices are as cheap as €0.28 per minute when choosing a Standard Plan and that includes electric power, CVA fees, in-surance and parking. It’s a whole package.

GoTo’s concept is simple. We want people to be able to log into our app and book an electric self-drive car with 15 minutes’ notice. All you need to do is open the app, book a car and find the closest pick up point at one of our reserved car parking spaces in your locality.

We have a fleet of 150 electric cars stationed around Malta and Gozo. Just in case you might have missed us, all our vehicles have a massive purple lightning bolt emblazoned on the side.

Once you find the car in its reserved spot – and there’s hundreds of them around Malta – all you have to do is use your app to unlock the vehicle and off you zoom to your destination.

The beauty of it is that you do not need to pay for a whole day. If your car is in for servicing or you simply don’t want to give up your precious parking space (they’re hard to come by these days!) you can simply pay to use a GoTo car for the exact time that you need it. So, if you need to take your car to your local mechanic, you just drive there and then walk back to the GoTo staging area and hop-on to get to work.

Once you get to a spot that is close to where you need to be, just park the car in one of the designated areas, et voila! 15 minutes before you leave work, reverse the process and there you go! The alternative would be to hire a car for the whole day (if not two!); that is expensive because you are literally paying for a car rental for more than you actually need it.

You also need to factor in insurance and sorting out a lift to get you back to where you need to be once you drop the car rental off.

Think how much easier (and cheaper) it would be if you just got into a GoTo electric car and pay as you go!

Why pay more and be inconvenienced by it? Just hop into a GoTo. It’s cheaper, easier and kinder on the environment.
