We’re here to help you succeed on the road, so we decided to list the 3 most important things to remember as a Splend member.

1. Drive within the speed limit

If you speed, you’re putting yourself, the general public, as well as your Splend car in harm’s way. Speeding is also a quick way to pick up multiple PCNs that chips away at your hard-earned income.

If you drive over the speed limit regularly, your car’s buzzer will be activated, and we might ask you to return your Splend car and cancel your rental agreement.

2. Keep on top of your weekly payments

Your weekly payment is always due on the same day of the week, at the same time: on Wednesday at midnight. Send you your weekly invoice in advance on Mondays, which gives you more than 48 hours to get the funds ready on your nominated card. We charge a £19 late payment fee for any missed payments.

3. Report every accident, no matter how small

If you’re involved in an accident, you must report the accident to us, even if your car or the third party’s car isn’t badly damaged. The sooner you report an accident to us, the better your chances are to recover funds from the third party, so you’re not out of pocket for the insurance excess.

If you ever have an accident, have these in mind:

Collect evidence

Take as many pictures as you can at the scene of the accident. Document the state of all the cars involved, the condition of the road and any relevant traffic indicators. Take videos if necessary, and save the dashcam footage if you have one.

Obtain third party details

Fill in the accident card located in your glovebox with any relevant details of the other parties involved in the accident. These include licence plate numbers, names, contacts, and insurance details. If you can, have some witnesses fill in the document for a more accurate description of the accident.

Contact Splend immediately

We’ll take care of the rest of the procedure once you collected all the necessary details from the scene.

Once everyone is safe and you recorded everything on the spot, call your Member Success Representative and take the car into the Member Support Centre. If your car’s damage is too severe, they’ll come to the scene to assist you.
