There is no need to provide the many reasons why not to drive drunk – the consequences are well-known. With our Driver Assist service which is so easily available, there is no justification for taking a chance. Relax, have a great evening, and let Home Drive take you and your car home safely. Home Drive is available through our friendly call centre or via the mobile app (if this forms part of your benefit entitlement). The service includes automated SMS communication services, which will SMS your driver’s name and mobile number to you on the afternoon of your booking so that, should you wish to change your collection detail, you are able to directly contact your driver at any time. Your driving team consists of a back-up driver and vehicle, and lead driver who will drive you home in his or her own vehicle or if preferred, in your own vehicle. The back-up driver will follow and collect the lead driver from your house.
If you require a driver’s assistance to get you from point A to point B in one of the Home Drive vehicles, our professional team of standby drivers will be at your service. Whether you’re running between meetings, need an airport transfer, your car has been booked in for a service and you need to be collected from the dealership or your child needs to be collected from school, you can rely on Home Drive for assistance. Pre-booking of this service 24 hours prior is highly preferred, in order to guarantee pick-up time.

- Drivers who are fluent in English.
