DRIVE AN ASTON MARTIN FOR THE DAY THROUGH DRIVEJOY
Ever wanted to spend the day driving around London in an Aston Martin?
Think this lifestyle is only for the elite? Think again.
Let us introduce Drivejoy.
Launched in 2015, Drivejoy is a UK car rental company with a difference. Drivejoy is an online community where car owners can safely rent their cars to drivers. Simply sign up to the platform for free, search your local area for a car that you like, and hire it for your chosen time-frame. It’s that easy. The selection of cars is absolutely phenomenal. It’s possible to hire anything from a VW Golf to a Ferrari with everything in between.
Browsing the site now for South London, it’s possible to hire an Aston Martin Vantage for £375 per day, a Bentley Continental for £500 per day, or a Ferrari 360 for £180 per day. If we were looking for a cheaper option we could rent a BMW 1 Series for £65 for the day or a VW Polo for £35 a day. When you consider that a taxi ride from central London to South London can set you back £35, the concept of hiring a car for the day looks very appealing indeed.
We’re envisioning endless possibilities here. Need a boss car for a date? Why not hire a Porsche convertible for 24 hours? Thinking of a road trip down to the beach? A Jeep Wrangler might be more suitable.
It’s a great example of how software is rapidly changing the world. In a similar setup to Airbnb, it allows both parties to gain from the transaction. The car owner rents out his / her car and generates an income from their asset, and the driver is able to rent their car of choice at a much lower cost than traditional car rental prices.
Drivejoy is free to join and comprehensive insurance is provided by platform, so both both parties can enjoy a stress-free experience.
We’re really excited by the Drivejoy concept and will be testing out the service in the near future. Stay tuned for a full Drivejoy review by Roll Like Boss.
