Short answer:

You can block out your car for your own use - either as a one-off or recurring weekly blockout - through the website or app.

Your car's calendar shows when your car has bookings, when it's available and when it's blocked out for your own use. Any time that you have not blocked out is available for Borrowers to book instantly.

  4. Click 'Add new blockout'
