How much does it cost?

What about insurance?

The driver is covered under Envoy's state minimum insurance policy which can be found here. The driver must download the "Envoy There" car sharing app and fully register (upload drivers license, accept terms and conditions, etc) to be covered. If driver is not at fault for accident, Envoy will file the claim with other driver who is at fault. If driver is at fault, basic deductible may apply. If a driver is in an accident, general insurance card can be found in the vehicle as well as this page.

Can I take the car as long as I want?

You can book an Envoy electric vehicle for as little or as long as you want. Drivers are charged by the minute and only from the time the vehicle is booked out to the time it is returned by ending the reservation in the app. Daily rates may also be available. Please note, there are also select weekly subscription programs piloting in select areas. Questions? Reach out through the Support section of the car sharing app (chat box available in the FAQ and Support Articles section).

Is Envoy available during COVID-19 Safer at Home orders?

Yes. Transportation is an essential service and we want to ensure our community members have access to a clean, sustainable, and affordable option to get the essential items they need (groceries, medicines, etc). We are working with our car cleaning partners (GoodYear and Simply Clean) to enhance the sanitization levels and frequency. We are also encouraging our Envoy community to be a good neighbor by keeping the car clean (wipe down before and after) and following CDC recommendations to keep us all healthy and safe. Learn more.
