All cars and drivers are screened by WhipCar before a booking is completed. Every hire is covered by a bespoke, comprehensive insurance policy provided by Lloyds of London. The insurance policy is integrated into the service and dynamically placed at the time of booking, providing the ultimate in security and peace of mind.
