Saving time in busy areas with hop-on self-drive cars

How many times do you have to drive round Sliema or Valletta to find a parking spot? Four, five… twenty? How many times have you actually just given up and ended up parking in a car park that costs you an arm and a leg?

Probably a few too many times! Malta’s traffic problem has escalated to epic proportions. Not only does it take up to an hour to complete a seven-kilometre drive, you also need to factor in the time that it is going to take you to find a parking spot.

It’s even getting to the point where you can’t even find a spot in a commercial car park! So, what do you do? Use GoTo!

GoTo is a hop-on self-drive car sharing service. Nope… not carpooling… This is car sharing. The concept is simple. We put cars on the roads, and we charge you for the time of use. Before you roll your eyes at what you might think is another bottomless cash pit, it costs as little as €0.28 per minute when choosing a Standard Plan and €0.35 per minute when choosing our Basic Plan, including fuel, CVA fees, insurance and parking.

Not only is the service affordable, you can bask in the delight (and smugness) of knowing that when you get to your busy destination, you can simply park your self-drive GoTo car in a reserved spot and walk away, stress and hassle free!

The concept is simple. All you need to do is download our app and book your car up to 15 minutes before you want to use it. You don’t even need a key; the app on your phone will unlock the car and away you go.

We are even contributing to reducing the number of cars on the road. GoTo’s vehicles are small, clean and designed to be shared, so you can even pick up your mate and share the costs.

The advantages of getting to and finding a guaranteed spot in a busy place like Sliema or Valletta (or anywhere else these days) is immediate. Factor in that it’s probably cheaper that sitting in traffic and going round and round to find a spot and using a GoTo self-drive car becomes a no brainer.

So, next time you think about booking a taxi or planning a bus journey 16 hours ahead of your appointment, download our app and give one of our zippy electric cars a spin. Not only do we get you to your destination, we reserve you a spot and you can book a car for the trip back without having to pay through the nose for it. What are you waiting for?
