Selfdrive, the car rental tech platform, is expanding its geographical footprint by launching in Qatar and Bahrain after Oman.

The company aims to acquire 50-65 per cent of the digital rental market share in these markets with the seamless customer experience and range of product offerings through the app.

The platform offers a BD10 or QR100 flat discount to its customers on their first booking as part of the launch offer.

Using the app’s convenient process of ‘search – select – pay’ ethos, customers in the region have access to over 5,000 vehicles available for rentals starting from 1 day to 36 months delivered to their doorstep.

The longest available lease period is up to 36 months, while subscription (micro lease) and LeasePro (lease to own) features are also available.

“Our expansion into Bahrain and Qatar is a testament to our growing popularity and success and an indicator of the changing landscape of the automotive rental market in the region and beyond. We plan to add further new markets in the Middle East and are actively looking at other regions globally as business goes from strength to strength,” said Soham Shah, CEO of Selfdrive.

When it comes to user experience, the company employs artificial intelligence (AI) technology to customise every user’s experience depending on their preference of vehicle. As a result, customers do not have to wade through a list of cars and are immediately directed to the preferred vehicle that fulfils their needs.

The company also aims to expand features in the app, with new functionalities on the cards for 2022. Brands on offer include Nissan, Infiniti, Renault, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Geely, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Kia, among others.

Selfdrive is now looking at Saudi and Kuwait markets. Further plans are afoot to venture westward into the UK, Europe and the United States by the third and the fourth quarter of 2022.
