There are two ways to share cars with us: Key Handover and Instant Keys. With Key Handover, borrowers and owners meet to exchange keys in person. With Instant Keys, borrowers get the keys from a secure electronic lockbox. We find many owners enjoy the convenience of Instant Keys.
How it works for owners
Both the Key Handover and Instant Keys systems let car owners rent out their cars safely and easily. The way it works varies a little between the two systems.
We find that Key Handover is good for owners who have time to meet with borrowers. And then we find that Instant Keys is good for owners who want to make their car available, when they're not, and earn more.
