You can share the driving with someone else, but only if the other driver is a Car Next Door member - non-members do not have damage and loss protection.
If you want to share the driving, your friend can join for free. Once they are a member, they are able to drive: it doesn't matter whether the trip is booked in your name or theirs.
Share the driving for free!
If you have a friend or partner that you'd like to share the driving with, simply get them to join for free. Once they're verified, they can drive the car, even though the trip is booked under your name.
If a trip is booked using your member account, then in the event of damage or an at-fault accident:
- you are responsible for the Damage and Loss Liability amount regardless of who is driving, and
- the Damage and Loss Liability amount will be based on your Rate Plan.
For example: Bert is a Heavyweight member and therefore has Premium Protection with a Damage and Loss Liability of $500 for all trips taken for $19/month. His wife, Margaret, is a Featherweight member, so she has Basic Protection and her Damage and Loss Liability is $2,000. They go on a long trip together, booked under Bert's account and have a minor prang when Margaret is driving where she is at fault. Bert is liable for the Damage and Loss Liability, which is only $500.
Only members can drive
Only verified Car Next Door members are insured to drive any of the Car Next Door vehicles.
Never allow another person to drive a car booked under your borrower member account, unless they are a Car Next Door member. If you do, you will be responsible for any damage, costs or liability that they may incur.
