Member Story: The Flexibility of Open Return

Hi there! My name is Joel Schat – I’m a local content creator living in Olympic Village. I’ve been a car share user ever since I sold my Volkswagen Westfalia a few years ago.


My First Modo Experience

The first time I booked a Modo, I drove it out to Abbotsford to see my nephews and take them exploring! I was honestly surprised with the vehicle diversity that Modo offered, and the number of vehicles around my apartment in Vancouver. From SUVs to compact sports cars, they were all within a couple of blocks for me. So, I made a booking, picked up a Modo, and headed out! I had a wonderful day exploring waterfalls and spending time with my nephews – I even got to drive them in my Modo.

As I was still a new Modo user at the time, I lost track of my booking while out in Abbotsford and before I knew it I was late to return the vehicle. As a result, rushing my time with family and paying extra to extend my booking. But I’ll never have to do that again, thanks to Modo’s Open Return!

Fast forward to this Christmas

I made another trip down to Abbotsford for the holidays to spend some quality time with family. I wasn’t entirely sure when I’d be returning back home as I always have such a great time seeing everyone during the holidays. Instead of rushing back, I used the new Modo feature called ‘Open Return’. This feature lets you book a vehicle for as long as you like, up to 24 hours, without having to predetermine your return time! Needless to say, I was able to have a great Christmas experience with the family. We even watched the beautiful sunset that evening! Upon returning the vehicle to its home location, I ended my trip and was only charged for the time that I used.

The Perfect Solution

Open Return is exactly what I’ve been looking for in a car share service for some time now. The ability to take a vehicle overnight without the need to rush back the next morning or be stressed about hitting a specific return time is the perfect solution for me. Especially since I don’t often know how long I’ll need the vehicle for when I book. Combine this with the diversity of vehicles that Modo has to offer, it has quickly become my go-to car share service!
