How we protect your car from being thrashed

Short answer:

We screen Borrowers carefully before they can borrow cars. If you're on our Instant Keys plan, we fit your car with a device that monitors driving behaviour.

It's a common misconception that people will 'thrash' a borrowed car, as if it were a rental. In fact, Borrowers are extra careful, because they know that they're driving a real person's car.

Instants Keys cars are also fitted with a device that monitors the driving behaviour of your Borrowers, including excessive speed, acceleration or harsh braking.
