How does DriiveMe work?

Car rental companies (Avis, Europcar, Hertz, etc.) are having problems balancing their vehicle fleets. This is because many people renting a car borrow and return vehicles at different locations. Automotive agencies therefore constantly need to move their vehicles in order to meet the needs of their customers. To combat this problem, car rental companies have used transporter trucks for years. However, this solution has many shortcomings such as the congestion of the highways but also its colossal cost. DriiveMe offers car rental companies to have their car fleets moved by individuals for the modest sum of 1€.

How to benefit from 1€ trips on DriiveMe?

Geoffroy Lambert (CEO of DriiveMe) and his entire team have thought of everything. Here are the steps to follow in order to reserve your vehicle on DriiveMe.

Choose and book your car

Whether it's a small city car, a station wagon or even a truck to move into your new apartment, all your dream cars can be found on DriiveMe. To book your rental car is very simple. First you will have to choose the departure date. You will need to go to the address of the partner car rental agency in order to pick up the vehicle. Then choose a return date. As you will have understood, it is on this date that you will have to return the rental car. All you have to do is confirm your reservation. Rather simple, isn't it?

Meet at the car rental company on D-Day

It seems obvious but do not forget the departure date otherwise the car rental company will not be happy. Think about your identity document, your credit card and your license. If you forget, you won't be able to borrow the car, which would be a shame. Then follow the standard procedures for car rental. DriiveMe's partner car rental company will first need to check your license and ask for a security deposit if it was not requested when booking. Last step before the big departure: the inventory of the vehicle and some signatures. You will be asked to note the condition of the vehicle on a completely standard rental agreement before signing it.

Arrival at the car rental company

You have 24 hours to travel from the departure destination to the final destination. The mileage limits are displayed when selecting your trip. Be careful not to overdo the detours. Charges are applied if this limit is exceeded. Go to the service station to fill up and return the vehicle keys to the agency. Here you are, you have just traveled for 1€.

DriiveMe Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the 1€ trip?

With 1€, DriiveMe allows you to rent a car or a truck for 24 hours with enough kilometers to reach your destination. Comprehensive insurance is also included.

Are road costs included?

You will have to pay your gas costs as well as the tolls as for a classic rental.

DriiveMe cancellation: how does it work?

You can cancel your rental as long as the departure date has not yet passed. However, you will have to pay a penalty of 25€. This amount increases to 50€ for the rental of utilities but also if you cancel within 48 hours of departure.

DriiveMe really cheaper than the bus or the train?

The first point to consider is the starting address. Many car rental companies are located on the outskirts of cities. It is therefore not always easy to get there to rent the car. This trip represents an expense that is often forgotten. The second point to consider is the arrival address. What to do when you arrive 30 km from Paris? Uber, RER? This also represents a cost and a significant waste of time.
Finally, transport costs (petrol and tolls) are your responsibility.
